  • Pure Drivel

    In this ingeniously funny collection of humorous riffs, those who thought Martin's gifts were confined to the screen will discover what readers of the New Yorker already know: that Martin is also a master of the written word. Hilariously funny and intelligent in their skewering of the topic at hand, these pieces feature Martin at his finest.

    Pretty original very funny, happily lacking in obscenities. Martin is very creative and very much his own person.

  • Old Jews Telling Jokes: 5,000 Years of Funny Bits and Not-So-Kosher Laughs

    Jews have a centuries-old tradition of telling jokes, from the ghettos of Europe to Hollywood and the Catskills. Jewish jokes are entertainment, the oral history of a culture, insightful social criticism, and survival tactic rolled into one. In 2008, Hollywood director and producer Sam Hoffman launched a website called Old Jews Telling Jokes. It’s just what it says: Jewish men and women over 60 sharing their favorite stories, tales, riddles, and punchlines.

    Some very funny jokes, overall good, a few jokes that have been around the block several times. Introductory material could be cut down.

  • Sh-t My Dad Says

    Story

    After being dumped by his longtime girlfriend, 28-year-old Justin Halpern found himself living at home with his 73-year-old dad. Sam Halpern, who is “like Socrates, but angrier, and with worse hair,” has never minced words, and when Justin moved back home, he began to record all the ridiculous things his dad said to him.

    Michael says: "Really Funny! Should Be Up for an Audie Award"
    "Sounds like the author had a miserable father."

    Story

    Larded with obscenities and anger, makes for tedious listening. The advertising for the book says: "in this book, his son weaves a brilliantly funny, touching coming-of-age memoir around the best of his quotes". Nonsense; its just raving and ranting.

    you thought humans were funny, just wait until you get a glimpse of the dogs in Jennifer Tilman's life. As a dog groomer, Jennifer's clientele consists of everything from Dobermans to prissy poodles. While her job has its benefits—she is paid to be with her favorite animals all day!—she definitely learns the meaning of a crappy day more than once, literally. Who else expels the anal glands for the beloved pets?

    Despite the advertisement there is very little humor in this book. It is mostly a tedious description of the ways to groom different breeds of dogs.
