If you loved the 'Deep Thought' books these longer pieces are the same jerk humor with a fuller range of idiocy. Hard to put down. You've got to be pretty smart to be this dumb. Jack Handey always seems to pick just the right word or silly detail to be laugh out loud funny rather than the 'witty amusing' which seems to be the norm these days. If you've read the New Yorker pieces its great to have them all in one place AND there's a lot of funny pieces first published elsewhere I'd not seen before - a real treat.
