I've been a subscriber to Reader's Digest for more years than I care to remember, and the joke pages are where I always go first, before I read any of the more serious articles. I expected most of the jokes in this book would be familiar to me. Much to my surprise, nearly every single one was new to me!
That could be just a function of a failing memory, but whether or not I had previously read any of them, these jokes got a lot of laughter out of me. They are all good, clean G-rated humor, suitable for sharing around the dinner table... or they would have been, if my wife had let me.
Everybody needs a good laugh once in a while. This book is a great place to go for that laugh. I absolutely insist that everybody should get a copy of this book, if not for your health, at least for your peace of mind. Nothing puts stress in its place quite like a good hearty laugh.
As with any collection of jokes, there will be examples that you won't find funny, and others your friends won't find funny. BUT... and this is a big but (no, that wasn't a joke), out of more than 1,000 jokes, just imagine how many you WILL find humorous! Statistically speaking, the odds are phenomenal that you will find yourself laughing at a great many of these jokes. When you look at it that way, how can you resist this sales pitch?
You will find yourself repeating many of these jokes around the water cooler at work, or in your email correspondences. But a word of warning... if your friends or co-workers start to turn the other way whenever they see you coming, maybe you should back off with sharing the jokes quite so much. Some folks just don't have a sense of humor.
-A junior manager, senior manager and their boss were on their way to a lunch meeting. In the cab they found a lamp. The boss rubbed it, and a genie appeared. "I'll grant you one wish each," the genie said. Grabbing the lamp from his boss, the eager senior manager shouted, "I want to be on a fast boat in the Bahamas with no worries." And poof, he was gone. The junior manager couldn't keep quiet. He shouted, "I want to be in Miami, with beautiful girls, food and cocktails." And poof, he was gone. Finally it was the boss's turn. "I want those idiots back in the office after lunch."
-When I overheard one of my cashiers tell a customer, "We haven't' had it for a while, and I doubt we'll be getting it soon," I quickly assured the customer that we would have whatever it was she wanted by next week. After she left, I read the cashier the riot act. "Never tell the customer that we're out of anything. Tell them we'll have it next week," I instructed her. "Now, what did she want?" "Rain"
There's just a few I quickly found and laughed at. That's a small example of what's in this hilarious book. Absolutely worth the free download and I would've gladly paid $10 or less for it. It would be a great little gift to give someone.
