"Chris Rush promised that if I gave him a favorable blurb, he would agree to be placed in a secure, isolated neuropsychiatric facility, away from the rest of us. Here goes: 'Chris's book is crammed with good, big, sick belly laughs.' Your turn, Chris." --George Carlin

"I first saw Chris Rush thirty years ago, and he killed me. He has a bizarre, funny way of looking at thing

this is a book of funny lists--well, some are funny, some are gross, and some are just plain stupid. i guess humor, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder.

It was a free kindle book.
It claimed to be so funny you'd wet yourself laughing.
It's about as funny as this review.

Based on the title, I expected to be screaming with laughter - or at least splitting my face with my widest grin. At most I cracked a smile in a couple of pages, but I didn't really find this funny. I didn't understand what was supposed to be funny about the lists. It seemed all nonsense to me. Maybe it would have been funnier if performed by a comedian; the humor may have been lost in translation. I gave up when I realized I wasn't exactly reading it but letting my eyes wander across the lines.

The introduction said something about pissing myself laughing reading this book. I barely cracked a smile. Hardly worth the price I paid for it, which was free from Amazon. Not a Good Read.

OMG parts of this were laugh till you can't breathe funny. Parts not so much (probably more parts like this than less) My husband and dogs were compelled to investigate what had me laughing so much. Overall I'm glad I read it and will go back to the pee my pants funny parts to read when I need a laugh.

This was free from Amazon and the write-up looked promising, however, it wasn't funny and I found some of the humour offensive - homophobic, poking fun at those with mental and physical conditions. I didn't finish it and deleted it from my Kindle (a first for me).

If I could have given it 0 stars I would have...

I was expecting more than this humorless set of lists when I picked up Milking the Rhino. I was highly disappointed that I not only didn't laugh, but barely cracked a smile. This book is going in my give away pile right now.

Thought I'd be laughing or smiling a lot...I think I laughed once, and smiled 4 times. That could have been a result of my crummy mood, and hoping to be cheered up, but it didn't happen. It was a free kindle book...we may have paid too much for it.

It had some very funny parts to it, but some of the things he was making sound like happened didn't have documentation and were too improbable. Also, I felt this was something for older kids, not younger kids.

I think I would have loved the book if the examples quoted were taken from real life and not just made up. Sure some of this lists were funny but I wouldn't spend full price on this book. I got it for free.

Kindle freebie -- not in the least bit funny.

I expected to really laugh throughout the book. I only smiled a couple of time and found most of it to be not funny at all.

This book is a compilation of fictitious lists. The list were ment to be funny but I did not find them humorous.

I did not finish reading this book.
read a tiny bit -- seems pretty stupid

Terrible book. I couldn't even finish it. Not funny at all.

Lists can be funny, I'm sure of it, but this book doesn't prove it.

There aren't any laughs in it and it's main benefit is that it's mercifully short.

Well - I read it. It passed some time.
Not one I'll re-read or recommend to my friends.
