Don't you just hate when you hold the ketchup bottle over your French fries and the first thing that comes out is red water? People who think soy is the solution to all health problems? The fact that Barry Manilow didn't write his hit song, "I Write the Songs"?

Almost as if in answer to Barbara Ann Kipfer's 14,000 Things to Be Happy About (over 1 million copies in print) an

A collection of hilarious thoughts that keep me laughing late into the night. This is my kind of humor.

Don't you just hate when you're reading a book that is supposed to be funny, and the author forces it so much that it's not funny anymore?

Yeah.

A few of these were funny. Like, "When you wonder what jerk left an empty roll of toilet paper, and then realize it was you."

But a lot weren't, like, "Going to the bathroom and coming back to find everyone in the restaurant bound and gagged." Yeah, cause that happens all the time.

Or, "When your car is stranded on an Alaskan highway and the only human wit

330. Noticing that you answered True for nine of the ten questions on a True or False exam, and wondering whether any test would ever have that high a percentage of Trues.

690. The anxious interior monologue you experience prior to introducing yourself to a large group (e.g., Hello, I'm Scott Cohen. No. Good afternoon everyone, my name's Scott. No. Hi, I'm Scott.)

263. That at 10:27 A.M. you're already starting to think about where to go for lunch.

630. Lifting, then lowering, then lifting your umb

The 739th Annoying Thing: This book was not anywhere near as entertaining or amusing as I had hoped it would be.

This is a cute little read that might tickle your funny bone. Makes a list of all the things irritating to the author--damned if I couldn't relate to a few myself. I bought it as a gift for a relative but ended up reading it before it got wrapped. Highly recommended for those little trips to the bathroom and or to spark discussions at dinner.

Don't you just hate that-- when your friends continue to win awesome free books from publishers and all you get is a clever little freebie like this one?

Oh, how can you not like a clever little book like this? Would make a great stocking stuffer for just about anyone.

It was funny! I was standing at the door of Barnes 'n' Noble waiting for my dad to pick me up, when i saw this book sitting on a rack. I picked it up and read all of it, ha! Its a really good thing to read for writing inspiration, thats what i use it for.

A great book to keep on a coffee table for light reading, this humorous account of irritating things in the world can easily be picked up at any random page for a brief bit of levity, from something most all of us could associate with.

As previously stated by other reviewers, after a while, the author seemed to be fishing for things. It was fun to flip through, but there ought to have been more plausible scenarios one would just hate for some in the list.

Some of them were pretty lame, but overall it was an interesting way to pass time.

I kept on agreeing with this thing over and over and over again. Fun little book, that's for sure, and it's great for sharing with friends! We all had a good laugh.

It's the easiest way to get a good laugh. Pocket-sized and fun and I love reading it over and over because I can sympathize with hundreds of the blurbs.

This was a pretty funny and fast read. Some of the things listed I could really relate to. I got it at Goodwill for ¢50 and I didn't waste it.
