I had purchased this in 2004 and loved it, borrowed it to a friend and never got it back, so I finally found it again at B&N and ordered it. I know the jokes almost by heart, but it still makes me crack up. I highly recommend this. Great for at home with family and in the car!

There are a lot of corny jokes here - but they still are funny. The pace is fast - so you have to listen carefully to follow what's happening, and subject matter changes quickly. I bought this on my lunch hour, brought it back to work, plugged it into my computer, put my earphones on and laughed myself silly while working. Everyone wondered what the heck was going on!!! Treat yourself....
