Their interaction with the former’s cows brings out the ideal design of buffoonery and jest, as illustrated through funny and sarcastic remarks and engagements, for example, when the former’s cow gives birth, and the owner decides to name it “My Best Friend.” … More “Mr. Taffle’s Pants of Insanity” by Daniel Eric Finkel

“The Trump Diaries 2024,” is the fourth book in the Oh Daddy Chronicles series by author Barry Robbins.
The diary was found in the ashes after Mar Lago burned down and The Donald disappeared. Taking place in the future, it contains over eighty satirical diary entries that cover from January 1, 2024, to November 1, 2024.

When I first saw the title of this book, I wasn’t sure what to think. I guess I was expecting a ridiculous book where a couple of drunks babbled on about life. In some cases that may be funny but, in most cases, I would expect that to be a complete waste of paper and ink. In the case of this book, however, I was very happily wrong. This definitely has some amusing anecdotes where the drunks just babbled on, don’t get me wrong, and I spent a lot of time just sitting there reading and laughing out loud. What surprised me the most was the serious topics that are covered and the insightfulness that the authors brought out in their discussions about each topic. … More “Drunk Talk” by Mike Davis and TL Banks
