The medicinal value of humor is not a new phenomenon. During the American Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln told his Cabinet, "With the fearful strain upon me day and night, if I did not laugh, I should die. You need this medicine as much as I do." With the funniest stories and lists this side of the millennium, this book is a heaping helping of penicillin for the mind. This book will heal the stitches it keeps you in. Almost everything has been fair game for the Email laugh mavens who contributed stories to this book. Under a laugh attack are (Heaven forbid) the Bible, travel, kids, sex and sexists, the Clinton years, News at 11, body parts, medical moments, politically incorrect and the usual suspectsblondes and lawyers. Nothing new, everything borrowed and some stories decidedly blue.
