Description

Looking for a good joke? Searching for an ice-breaker for that after-dinner speech? Or are you just in need of a few laughs?

Then stop! Your search is over. This book is the finest, funniest collection of gags, rib-ticklers and plain silly one-liners ever to find themselves squeezed inside the covers of a book. Organised by subject matter (from Absence - via Insults - to Writers) and containing side-splitters stolen from such wits as Groucho Marx, Orson Welles, Mark Twain and P. J. O'Rourke, among many, many others, this book will ensure that people will feel compelled to laugh at you wherever you go.

A treasure trove of wit covering all walks of life, The Penguin Dictionary of Jokes is the perfect joke book for all occasions.
