The World's Oldest Joke Book - Perfect Stocking Stuffer Idea

Still looking for that special stocking stuffer for the adult in your life? How about The World's Oldest Joke Book by Dan Crompton.

My father-in-law is the perfect candidate for this book. His jokes are legendary for being the absolute worst. We even call other family member's bad jokes, "A Peno`. Peno has always been one of my favorites in my husband's family. He is just too silly not to love. He cracks up easily and especially when telling his own joke. In fact, some of the jokes may have come out of his mouth in the 20 years I have known him.

Sailor: Where’s the wind coming from today?
Captain: Onions and cabbages.

Apparently farting has been funny for a very long time. Well, at least since the fourth century when Philogelos was written by the ancient Greeks.

In the recently released, The World’s Oldest Joke Book readers will find hundreds of filthy ancient quips translated from what historians believe is the oldest joke book in the world.

From absurd situations, to farting and foolishness, The World’s Oldest Joke Book contains a wealth of jokes, some of which still hit the mark and some that will have you groaning with laughter (even if it is because they’re so bad, they’re good). Among these ancient gems you will find:

An idiot hears that a crow can live for up to 200 years,
So he buys one to see if it’s true.

An Abderite meets a eunuch who’s chatting with a woman, and asks him if this is his wife. When he’s told the eunuchs can’t have wives, the Abderite says, “My mistake-it must be your daughter.”

With over 200 wisecracks and absurd one-liners, The World’s Oldest Joke Book will prove beyond doubt that when it comes to witty repartee, humankind will never be able to top “Yeah? Well, you smell.” 

The perfect gift for the men in our lives who tell terrible jokes!

This is a fun book to read out loud at a gathering. Someone is sure to laugh. Pass the book around, sometimes it is the delivery and not the words. Stocking stuffers should always be under $10.00 and this one is. Happy reading!
