Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

These hilarious and slightly off-color stories, although gathered in Indiana, reflect the ancient origin and universality of the joke. Jokes told about Hoosiers are adaptations of the same tales told about Kentuckians or Poles. Baker has selected a broad sampling of folk humor, including jokes about married couples, drunks, salesmen, politicians, and golfers. The joke, risque or downright silly, remains one of the most popular forms of folktales in the modern world.
