Sacred Selections: Funny Books
I’m going to go with the funniest thing I’ve ever read. No contest. It’s a collection of stories with cartoon illustrations called Hyperbole and a Half: Unfortunate situations, Flawed Coping Mechanisms, Mayhem and Other Things That Happened. It’s a series of stories from the author’s life, including the hilarious inner thoughts of her dogs. It also discusses her depression in a way that's entirely recognizable to fellow sufferers, but still somehow funny.
Been longing for a book that will make you laugh until snot comes out your nose? Or your diet coke goes up it? A book that will make you laugh until you cry off your makeup just before work? This is that book.
Warning: you will become annoying to others as you force them to stop what they’re doing to read snippets.
Satire is something that always makes me laugh, and this book is exactly that. I remember reading it in high school, and laughing in every chapter. I feel like I don't read funny books often enough, but this one was hilarious! Check it out!
Uncle Morty is going with one of his favorite books, Breakfast of Champions, because the whole thing is darkly funny, but largely because there’s a very small story in the middle of it that makes him laugh and laugh. It’s ostensibly written by Kilgore Trout and it’s called “The Dancing Fool.” Look it up. That is all.
