Jack Handey's bestselling books include the Deep Thoughts series, What I'd Say to the Martians and Other Veiled Threats, and Fuzzy Memories. Jack's writing for Saturday Night Live is known worldwide.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's Almost Too Funny This book is thoroughly hilarious. Every single paragraph, almost every single sentence, has one laugh out loud moment. The only other book that made me laugh out loud as much is Woody Allen's Without Feathers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LMAO XD This book is the funniest book I have ever read. I was searching online for other funny books, and nothing comes close to Jack Handey's sense of humour for me. I laughed until I cried. I even bought a second copy that I could lend out, so that no one would take my copy. Yes, it's THAT good!
