Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A treasury of hilarity from one of Americas favorite radio shows.

A guy walks into a bar. Eight Canada Geese walk into a bar. A termite jumps up on the bar and asks, “Where is the bar tender?” Drum roll.

The Fifth Edition of the perennially popular Pretty Good Joke Book is everything the first four were and more. More puns, one-liners, light bulb jokes, knock-knock jokes, and third-grader jokes (have you heard the one about Elvis Parsley?). More religion jokes, political jokes, lawyer jokes, blonde jokes, and jokes in questionable taste (Why did the urologist lose his license? He got in trouble with his peers). More jokes about chickens, relationships, and senior moments (The nice thing about Alzheimers is you can enjoy the same jokes again and again).

It all started back in 1996, when A Prairie Home Companion fans laughed themselves silly during the first Joke Show. The broadcast was such a hit that it became an almost-annual gagfest. Then fans wanted to read the jokes, share them, and pass them around, and the first Pretty Good Joke Book was born. With 362 new jokes (more or less), the latest edition promises countless giggles, chortles, and guffaws anyone—fans of the radio show or not—will enjoy.

Synopsis:

The original Pretty Good Joke Book was pretty darn funny, yet each edition just gets better. The Fifth Edition of this perennial favorite is a treasury of snickers, chortles, and belly-laughs from A Prairie Home Companion's popular joke shows--hundreds and hundreds of jokes, audience-tested and certified Pretty Good. Includes over 350 additional jokes.

Synopsis:

The Pretty Good Joke Book includes all of the jokes from the first nine Prairie Home Companion Joke Shows--hundreds of jokes about every subject from blondes to lawyers to chickens to relationships.

From one-liners and puns to jokes about the headlines, this book covers the field. Guys walk into bars, light bulbs get changed, doors are knocked on, and insults fly in this treasury of hilarity from one of America's favorite radio shows, audience-tested and certified Pretty Good.

Synopsis:

This revised paperback edition--with over 200 more jokes--includes all the standbys, one-liners, puns, knock-knock jokes, and insults from the final joke show that aired in April 2000.
