I've been suffering from clinical depression, and a fellow patient lent me a copy of this book. From the very first page I was laughing out loud -- and I kept on laughing all the way through. It had been a long time since I had really laughed at anything, but this book really did the trick. I think you have to have a penchant for a certain kind of humor to enjoy the book. I could imagine some people not "getting it", so to speak, or finding it just plain silly. But for me, it really hit the funny bone, and I know it has for others, too. Buy it! It's only a few bucks, and the laughs you might get from it far outweigh the risk of wasting your money.

Funny story. I was about 27 and my mom and I went to our favorite book store in the mall. She was in one section, I was in the humor section. I love Jack Handey and so I saw this book and began leafing through it. I was in hysterics in the middle of the store. I embarrassed my mom, who told me she'd buy me the book to read later, if I would just stop reading it now. I muffled a giggle and said "fine". We get in the car and we are driving back to my mom's house and as we are traveling down the road, I find my Deep Thoughts and start reading them to myself. I was laughing so very hard that I was crying real tears. So hard that I ended up with my head in my mom's lap and my mom trying to control the car and make it to the side of the highway. Funniest things I've ever read were authored by Jack Handey. Love him!

This book rocks. It is so funny! It's one of those books that you could read over and over again and never get tired of. It will crack you up every time. And it's a great book just to keep out in the living room somewhere so that when people come over they can start reading the "thoughts" out loud for everyone to laugh at. The thoughts are things like: "They say that God lives inside us. Well, I hope He likes enchiladas, because that's what He's getting!" If you need some more laughs in your life, this book could help you with that.

Format: Paperback
Don't let the small size of this book let you think it a light weight in the world of books on deep thoughts.What I'm really trying to say is that when something is really thought out ,it doesn' take a volumous manuscript to get the message across. Take Moses,for example,he could have filled 50 volumes explaining God's instructions.He took two stones,and in 10 Commandments,got the message across clear and simple.

When Handley set out to explain deep thinking,he managed to do it in so few pages ,he didn't even have to number them.Not only that,most of the page is a simple picture.

Most of the reviewers talk about how funny this book is.What he really makes us laugh so hard ; is how complicated we make the thoughts on living for ourselves.The great Philosophers have tried over the ages to give us great thoughts to live by.You know what? It ain't that difficult.

For instant,much has been written on the meaning of life.Handey tells us to think deep.

"Life is a constant battle between the heart and the brain.

But guess who wins. The skeleton."

Or how about this;

"You might think that the favorite plant of the porcupine is

the cactus,but it's thinking like that that almost ruined

this country."

Then his thoughts on afterlife;

"In my next life,I hope I come back as a parrot,because I

already know quite a few words."

And finally a deep thought in case we are invaded by Aliens;

"Warning to all outer-spage guys: You can capture me and put me

in your "space zoo" if you like,but I will sit way in the

back of my cage,where it's hard to see me.And when I do come

out,I won't be wearing any pants."

Now,how about that; Deep thoughts or what? Yeah,and it'll

make you laugh,too.

This book is one of the funniest I've read. Sometimes I can't finish a thought because I'm laughing so hard! If the others are half as funny I'll gladly buy them.

If you have any sort of a sense of humor whatsoever, you must get this book. Jack Handey is one of the most hilarious people alive! You may already be familiar with Handey's work, his work was featured on Saturday Night Live some years back. These are great to memorize and randomly quote throughout the day. I love this book, I've read it a bunch of times, and it's always funny.

This is probably the funniest book I've ever read. I laughed out loud at most of them. If you have a short attention span like me, buy this book, its great.

If I were a rich gal, I would buy everyone in the world a copy of this book, because inside are some of the funniest thoughts ever produced! Each page holds a different "deep thought"; some immediately bring out the laughter, while others take a sec or two to sink in. Then you grin and want to immediately share it with someone. I think this would make a wonderful coffee table book. Put it out there at your next get-together and watch people chuckle, roar, giggle, snort, whoop, guffaw, howl, snicker, crack up, or whatever they do when they've just read something hilarious.
