Laughter in Appalachia: A Festival of Southern Humor by Loyal Jones and Billy Edd Wheeler (August House Publishers Inc. 1987)(817.008). This book is filled with good old Southern farm jokes, and I mean “old” jokes. Most of them are funny, but I heard them years ago! If the reader grew up in the South or with farm dirt in his veins, there is nothing new in this collection at all. My rating: 6/10, finished 1/27/11.
This is a fun book to read, much like sitting on the porch and listening to a bunch of old timers out do each other telling funny stories.
