    1 thought on “Pretty Good Joke Book

    1. Garrison Keillor is one of the few bona fide American intellectuals today. From 1974 through last year, his weekly radio program A Prairie Home Companion has entertained and educated Americans by preserving and promoting the national culture through music, humor, nostalgia, and its mythologies. For the last 17 years or so of the program, there was an annual Pretty Good Jokes program filled with laughs. This book is a collection of some of the jokes featured on these episodes. They include old jo [...]

    2. I really enjoyed this book. I'm giving it five stars, but I really should add a disclaimer: the five stars are not to be taken as an endorsement of every joke. Some jokes are in poor taste, and some I just didn't get. That said, so many of the jokes that I *did* get were so side-splittingly funny that they were well worth the ones that fell flat. I can't remember when I had such an enjoyable time reading a book. I laughed out loud so often, reading by myself, that I was half afraid my family wou [...]

    3. I love Prairie Home Companion's Joke Night. This compilation is a fun distraction from so much drama :)

    4. Garrison Keillor’s collection of jokes from his radio show and compiled into this audio book is all the title says it is – pretty good. The jokes range from kid-friendly to mature adult, or maybe not quite so mature adult! At any rate, you will be highly entertained by not only the comedic delivery of the jokes but also the musical interludes. With a wide variety of jokes from a variety of comic story tellers, there is something here that will appeal to most everyone.

    5. I borrowed the book on CD version from the library and listened to it when I drove. OK, I must lead a sad life since I've been through all five disks at least three times and they are two weeks overdue. I enjoyed the jokes, the cadence, and the audience laughter. Many are puns, a low form of humor, but I love them. If you memorize enough of them, you can easily liven up a conversation that usually ends with a groan. Love it. They touch all areas: religion, sex, professions, Iowans, Swedes, New J [...]

    6. Some that I can remember: Yo' mama is so old she owes Moses a quarter! Did you hear about that guy who had sex with his canary? Got a bad case of chirpees - and what's worse, it's untweetable! Did you hear about the blind skunk who fell in love with a fart? Why are there so many Johnsons in the phone book? They all have phones! Last words said at the Last Supper? Everyone who wants to get in the picture get on this side of the table! A well organized source of funny jokes and a few groaners. Hum [...]

    7. I bought this book in the hope for an engaging and enveloping read. I was disappointed to find how the author must constantly link his jokes to a neo-Marxist regime, e.g. 'why did the chicken cross the road? To get to the other side!', with the 'Chicken' representing Lenin, the road being the Bolshevik revolution of 1917 and the 'other side' being the USSR. The book also has a running undertone of anti Semitism through the constant fart jokes. The plot lacked any narrative structure and the char [...]

    8. If you have any way of getting the sound recording of any of the Prairie Home Companion Joke Shows, do it. They are great for a road trip. I read some of these out loud to my husband as we drove along and we shared a good laugh. I think some of the mirth came from the fact that we heard the original delivery in the sound recording some years ago. It adds a lot. Still, they are worth the read and the kids enjoy the simpler jokes. Just a caution: some of the jokes are NOT child-appropriate.

    9. I'm fairly certain it's cheesy to count this as a book I've "read" this year, but it did keep me company while taking care of other business over the last couple weeks. I love A Prairie Home Companion, and I giggled plenty over many of these jokes. Amazingly, they were all voiced by Garrison Keillor in my head as I read them. Fun stuff.

    10. All I have to say is that I employed this to annoy fellow bar-patrons for a good 18 months - which is probably a pretty good compliment for a joke book!Some of these jokes I was already familiar with from listening to "Prairie Home Companion" as a kid, but many I thought were hilarious, but couldn't convey to my fellow humans. Eh, still fun to have on hand ;)

    11. This book was super funny! I personally liked the death and heaven jokes. This book kept me laughing the entire time, some times I laughed for minutes at a time. The yo'mama jokes are always funny. For example yo'mama is so fat her year book picture is an aerial picture! All in all this book is super funny and a great gift.

    12. A Prairie Home Companion Pretty Good Joke Book by Garrison Keillor (Highbridge Co. 2000)(817). This is the companion book to the Prairie Home Companion Radio Show's “Annual Joke Show.” It's without a doubt one of the funniest joke books in print. My rating: 7.5/10, finished 2003.

    13. If laughing is even half as therapeutic as it is reported to be, I just lengthened my life by at least 3 years. Great stuff. I've added a sign to my class store giving prices for the few things I peddle. At the bottom it says "Free Jokes". Thank heavens for this book.

    14. If you like the humor of Prairie Home Companion, you will, like me, love this book. Funny funny jokes, something mostly clean for everyone. Some of it is a bit smutty - but you have to be of a certain intellectual capacity to even realize that - so its safe for work.

    15. Best assortment of laugh-out-loud humor, puns, and other clever word play that I have seen anywhere--so refreshing to see a collection that doesn't have to regularly stoop to vulgarity and play on the baser instincts to get a laugh--highly recommend.

    16. Hundreds of jokes organized by topic. Many of them made me laugh the second time I read them. Good book to keep as a reference for public speaking, when you might need a joke to set the tone or illustrate a point.

    17. If you are looking for an icebreaker. Bring out this baby. It has yo momma jokes, knock knock jokes, and of course the how many irishmen does it take to screw in a light bulb.Classics, every single one of them.
