Overview

'This wonderful, splendid, terrific, fabulous, uh, thick, tightly bound book contains every humorous word ever said by man' Mike Scully, Executive Producer, The Simpsons

What's the funniest thing you've ever heard? Who said it? Was it Oscar Wilde, P.G. Wodehouse (The Right Hon. was a tubby little chap who looked as if he had been poured into his clothes and had forgotten to say 'When!'), Groucho Marx (A hospital bed is a parked taxi with the meter running), Homer Simpson (To alcohol! The cause of -- and solution to -- all of life's problems!) or Joan Rivers (I don't exercise. If God wanted me to bend over, he would have put diamonds on the floor)? Maybe it was Noel Coward, Milton Berle, Woody Allen or Dean Martin? They are all here: over 5,500 quotations from the funniest people of modern times.

Covering categories from abstinence, bosses and honeymoons to wealth, wine and Yugoslavia via pets and swimming, this is a book that will give the reader a line for any kind of speech or simply provide hours of pleasurable browsing.
