Terrorize Your Sister (Or Your Brother. Or your Parents. Or Your Pals in the cafeteria.)

Take it away! Jokelopedia is the mother of all joke books-

An all-encompassing, gut-busting collection of jokes for any occasion. -59 elephant jokes, including Why are elephants banned from public swimming pools? They always drop their trunks. -Dozens of knock-knocks, like Knock, knock./Who's there?/Cow go./Cow go who?/No, cow go moo. -Plus teacher jokes and creature jokes, light-bulb jokes and why-did-the-chicken-cross-the road jokes. And tongue twisters: The corn on the cob made Bob the Slob's sobbing stop. -For aspiring comedians, JOKELOPEDIA takes it a step further with tips on how to tell a joke, riffs on styles, and stories of how famously funny people-from Lucille Ball (do you know who she is?) to Chris Rock-made it big.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
"Why can you always tell what Dick and Jane are going to do next? They're easy to read." And so is this book. The subtitle reads "The Biggest, Best, Silliest, Dumbest Joke Book Ever," and that is certainly the truth. Over 1,500 jokes and riddles are catalogued in this "jokelopedia." Also included are brief biographies of famous and almost famous comedians, from Lucille Ball to Chris Rock. The jokes and riddles themselves are divided into chapters with headings like "Tall Tails," "Critter Jitters," and "Family Funnies." Just about every child loves to tell jokes, and this book provides enough jokes to last any eight-year-old until he/she is twelve. 2000, Somerville House Books Limited, $11.95. Ages 7 to 10. Reviewer: Danielle Williams
Jokelopedia is a recommended for fans of jokes and joke books: a title packed with jokes, punch lines, and a satisfying blend of one-liners, stories, cartoons and fun dumb jokes certain to appeal to a range of funny bones. A fun joke book recommended for all ages.

Did you hear the one about the lion who ate clowns?
You’ll roar.

Did you hear the one about the donkey who watched
Country Music Television?
You’ll hee-haw.

Why shouldn’t you shortchange a skunk?
It’s bound to make a stink.

What did the judge say when the skunk came in to testify?
Odor in the court!

There were these two buddies out walking their dogs, one with a Doberman pinscher and the other with a Chihuahua, when they smelled something delicious coming from a nearby restaurant.

The guy with the Doberman says to his friend, “Let’s go over to that restaurant and get something to eat.” The guy with the Chihuahua says, “ We can’t go in there. We’ve got dogs with us.” The buddy with the Doberman says, “Just follow my lead.” He puts on a pair of dark glasses and walks into the restaurant, when the restaurant owner comes up and says, “Sorry, pal, no pets allowed.” The man with the Doberman replies, “You don’t understand. This is my Seeing Eye dog.”

The owner, skeptical, says, “A Doberman pinscher?” The Doberman’s master says, “Yes, they’re using them now—they’re very good and they protect me from robbers, too.” The owner says, “ Come on in.”

When the man with the Chihuahua sees this, he puts on a pair of dark glasses and starts to walk in. Once again the restaurant owner says, “Sorry, pal, no pets allowed.” The guy with the Chihuahua says, “You don’t understand. This is my Seeing Eye dog.”

“A Chihuahua?” says the owner.

The man with the dog replies, “ A Chihuahua? They gave me a Chihuahua?!”

What do you call an overweight cat?
A flabby tabby.

Why was the rabbit so unhappy?
She was having a bad hare day.

How do you catch a squirrel?
Climb a tree and act like a nut.
