Consider the street where you live. Buildings, sidewalks, a tree here and there... looks fine but what''s missing? That''s right — the jokes! Where are the antics in your area? The parodies in your proximity? The tomfoolery in your territory?
Never fear, it''s all right here. Chalk the Block is a handbook of inspired lunacy packaged with a set of chalk. There are no elaborate chalk art projects in this book, nor nostalgic hopscotch games. It''s just the jokes, folks, and every one of them is easy to execute, simple to draw, and guaranteed to bring a smile to passersby.
Armed with just a few sticks of chalk and a quick wit, our resident funny guy Michael Sherman can make anyone into a one-person neighborhood improvement committee. Of course, the laughs are terrific but temporary, since the chalk washes off with the first summer shower or sprinkler session. Like all the best humor, it''s a "you had to be there" kind of thing.
