From Anon to Woody Allen ('Not only is there no God, but try getting a plumber at weekends'), Miss Piggy and Dorothy Parker, to Mae West ('to err is human, but it feels divine'), Morecambe and Wise and P.G. Wodehouse to Homer Simpson and Seinfeld, the last hundred years offer a rich banquet of humour. Even 'Golf' and 'Inflation' have inspired witty remarks, while topics like 'Eating' and 'Drink', 'Politicians' and 'Poets', 'Animals' and 'Americans', 'Sex', 'Drugs' and 'Rock 'n' Roll' have all produced countless gems. Here is the definitive collection, fully updated, organised by theme and offering more laughs per page than any other book.
