What do you do when a book is suppose to be a "laugh out loud on every page", but YOU don't laugh? Rack it up to "not my cup of tea", which is what The Stench of Honolulu by Jack Handey was to me. It's a silly adventure that two guys embark on in Hawaii to find the "Golden Monkey."The premise sounded like it would be a good time, but the constant one liners wore me down, especially since they "didn't make me laugh out loud". Well at least not many of them. The chapters are short, one or two pages, and the book is short, 224 pages, that could have probably have been condensed to 125 if they didn't use large print.

Wanted to like this, but just didn't.
