it was amazing
Read in February, 2009

For my money, middle Americans find it too easy to lump Jack Handey in with the alumni of SNL, which is a real shame. Handey is, in my opinion, the master of the short form comedic essay. This book is the first collection of his that I've read, so I can't say how it fares against past collections. I will say that I accidentally left the book on top of my bathroom cabinet and now the binding boards curl out like a duck's bill. But if you're a Jack Handey fan, you've probably already read some of these essays in a magazine and can just tear them out. I'll bet that would make it all one thickness.
