Commiserate with "Mr. Early," who hated such puns as what's that in the road, a head? Sympathize with the victim of "Road Rage," who is advised to keep his finger to himself. Celebrate with Vern, the city councilman, who overcame "Tern Limits." Enjoy these and another 100 or so crazy bits. You'll even find a couple of cute and gentle poems the author's wife made him include. Lose weight-laugh your butt off!
