So....George Carlin, among others, endorsed this. I know this because it says so RIGHT AT THE TOP OF THE BOOK DESCRIPTION. Using my AMAZING powers of deduction, I figured (deduced, one might say) this would be an off-color humor kind of book. I was right. It's freakin' hilarious, in an "We're all going to h*ll" kind of way. It's not the funniest book I ever read, and the author does kind of get a little "look at me, aren't I clever, clever CLEVER?!!" after awhile, but it's really good. I keep it on my kindle and read a few random pages whenever I feel suppressed by my Stepford neighborhood and fellow housewives and PTA duties and boy scouts and soccer and karate and the "your landscaping isn't up to our standards" speech by my insane neighbors and the ongoing mailbox/snow blower feud of '12. (see what I did right there?) Reading irreverent humor is how I stay out of prison for murder. If you also choose humor as your anti-homicide, this book is for you. If you're like the neighbor who came over last week to complain about my flowers not being the right color for my house, you should probably pass on this book. you won't understand the funny.

That pretty much says it all "NOT in the LEAST BIT FUNNY!" I have a great sense of humor and enjoy a good laugh like everyone...even at the expense of events that might not have been that funny to the person it happened to. That being said, this book of lists didn't even seem marginally funny to me; beside, the majority of the things/events described had no basis in truth and seem to be only the ramblings of a somewhat warped mind that can't really write anyway. At first I thought, "Well, maybe it's because there's no 'delivery' so I'm missing the point." Nope, it just isn't funny that's all!

I always check Happy Reader Joyce's freebie Kindle list, and have found many great books. This one sounded funny and would be a quick and light read. I have a pretty good sense of humor with it being on the sick and twisted side. There is NOTHING funny in this book at all. Not a darn thing.

The lists are just stupid. I kept reading until I got through 58% of the Kindle book and gave up. I kept pushing forward to see if there was anything funny and found no humor at all. Sometimes, things are so stupid that they are funny. Not in this case. It was just stupid.

I guess he should stick to his stand up routine. Maybe some of these lists and little diddies would be funny when you include the person's facial expressions, the inflection in the voice, and the body language. Although I can't even see it being funny then. Maybe if he tells one of these dumb jokes, and pretends to have a seizure because his brain was trying to reject the moronic humor...that might get a smirk from the crowd.

Since this book is free, I don't feel bad. It did make a lot of other mediocre writers look a whole lot better now. If this is still free, and you want to just see how bad it is, get it. Otherwise, read at your own risk. This book was just plain God-awful.

I was prepared to enjoy this book, but found it to be unutterably boring - not funny at all - and I couldn't even finish it. I think there was one place where I cracked a smile, but that was the extent of it. The author's attempts at humor just fall flat. His lists range from uninteresting to somewhat tasteless. His stories are ordinary. His compediums of 'interesting facts' (another kind of list) sounds like he just Googled for strange information and tried to make it his own.

Not recommeded at all.

This is a truly horrible book! Nothing in it is funny at all. I have an offbeat sense of humor so I thought maybe this book would illicit a chuckle or two. Nope. It is just dumb. I can't even call it sophmoric humor since that would be an insult to teenagers. I am not someone who tries to be PC all the time but a lot of what is in this book is so offensive, I was shocked. I can't believe that anyone found this to be an enjoyable read. Deleted from my Kindle and my archives.

im warning you right here and up front: do NOT read this book unless you are in the mood to read something weird. this book would be funny if it werent so weird. i admit there is a few good laughs in there but nothing that you have to go on and blow up laughing about.

I read this book in less than an hour, there are a few laughs in it, but not that many. Some crude humor...nothing I found offensive. A couple of times I laughed out loud, but most of the time, eh. It was free....I wouldn't recommend paying for it.
There is no humor to this book. It is just plain stupid. I had hoped there would be at least one or two humorous pieces inserted somewhere between the front and back pages but alas I failed to find them. If I could possibly give it anything less than one star I would.
