Overview


A treasury of hilarity from one of America’s favorite radio shows.

A guy walks into a bar. Eight Canada Geese walk into a bar. A termite jumps up on the bar and asks, “Where is the bar tender?” Drum roll.

The Fifth Edition of the perennially popular Pretty Good Joke Book is everything the first four were and more. More puns, one-liners, light bulb jokes, knock-knock jokes, and third-grader jokes (have you heard the one about Elvis Parsley?). More religion jokes, political jokes, lawyer jokes, blonde jokes, and jokes in questionable taste (Why did the urologist lose his license? He got in trouble with his peers). More jokes about chickens, relationships, and senior moments (The nice thing about Alzheimer’s is you can enjoy the same jokes again and again).

It all started back in 1996, when A Prairie Home Companion fans laughed themselves silly during the first Joke Show. The broadcast was such a hit that it became an almost-annual gagfest. Then fans wanted to read the jokes, share them, and pass them around, and the first Pretty Good Joke Book was born. With 362 new jokes (more or less), the latest edition promises countless giggles, chortles, and guffaws anyone—fans of the radio show or not—will enjoy.

    Keep a copy in your desk!

    A wonderful collection of humor. I recommend you buy two copies. One for the house, before the relatives arrive, and one for your desk drawer at work.

    Original, great to memorize, and fun to read

    I have a lot of nostalgia with this book because I read an earlier edition growing up. I laughed at it as a kid, and, rereading it, I laugh at it now. It was also a place I went to for learning new jokes. It's got a wide variety of subjects. I'm here because I want to buy it for someone. Anyway, you should check it out.

    A priest, a rabbi and a Pastor read this book...

    Need an ice breaker at the office party? Put a few of these jokes in your brain roladex and you'll do just fine!

    Something for everyone, every age, from juvenile to bawdy! Great fun to read with a group of friends. I keep it on the coffee table so it's handy for any occasion. Also, it works well to protect the table from water rings as it holds several cups at a time.
