This volume was a great relief to type: a few selections from this, then a few pages of depressing (though fascinating) history, then back to a few funny stories.
A few of the authors here are little known, and this may help to fix that. Everybody who writes something funny to amuse the world, should be at least as represented in libraries as those with the opposite goals. Especially when that humor is still funny 100 or 1000 years later.
What delighted me to discover the most was Ben Franklin, in some unknown bits of mirth, The Height of the Ridiculous by Oliver Wendell Homes, and William Tappan Thompson’s excerpts.
I wonder what you will like best?
Please let me know, then when I can gauge the matter that tickles your funny bone, I tailor the other selections I run across, that might strike your fancy as well.
Have fun! [Click on the Title Below to get started.]
