Black Gold: Nuggets from a Lifetime of Laughs
The Stephen Leacock Memorial Medal for Humour is Canada's top award for humour and nobody has won it more times than Arthur Black, who carried off his third medal in June 2006. Now, in case there is anyone left standing who still disputes Black's claim to the title of Canada's funniest man, Harbour presents the laughing proof: a retrospective of Black's best hits, high-graded from eleven previous collections stretching back over the past twenty years. The result is a landslide of laughter, a pageant of puns, a tsunami of silliness, a cornucopia of corn, in short, a bonanza of Black humour.
From pointers on the medical application of duct tape to uses for that ancient Commodore 64 stashed in the closet to people who seek immortality by naming bugs after themselves to plans for a combination gambling and fitness machine so you can lose pounds as you lose money, Black holds nothing back.
