Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett - A Laugh Out Loud funny book

LOLBooks - Laugh Out Loud Funny Books

Here is a tribute to the books that make us laugh. Not just smirk or smile or emit a small "heh", but really laugh.

Limericks, Lear and Nonsense

"There was an old man of Calcutta..." You know the rest. Salute the wonderful Edward Lear (an extraordinary wordsmith and artist), and the joy of limericks and nonsense verse with our celebration of these special forms of poetry. There are limerick books from the master of science fiction Isaac Asimov and the master of the macabre Edward Gorey, and Playboy Magazine too.
