Looking for a good joke? Searching for an icebreaker for that after-dinner speech? Or are you just in need of a few laughs? Then stop! Your search is over.

Organized by subject matter (from Absence - via Insults - to Writers) and containing side-splitters stolen from such wits as Groucho Marx, Orson Welles, Mark Twain and P J O'Rourke, among many, many others, this book will ensure that people will feel compelled to laugh at you wherever you go.
