Fun with Stuff

Front Cover
iUniverse, Dec 17, 2009 - Humor - 208 pages
Fun with Stuff is a collection of humor columns, many of which first appeared in a Southern California Mensa publication. But dont be frightened; theyre not all that intellectual. Hardly. Instead, these are true life stories and exaggerated fabrications that everyone can relate to. Laugh along as Bruce Smith relates tales detailing: A comedy of errors as Bruce and his wife make an attempt to travel in an RV. The origins of the saying, your hair looks like a cat sucked on it. How you simply cant trust the drink sizes at fast food restaurants. How the phone company wrongly accused the author of calling porn numbers in Africa. A workshop where anyone (well, almost anyone) can learn to write a joke. Enjoy these and other classic columns, regaled by people who wish to remain anonymous as hilarious, mind-bogglingly funny, as well as disorienting and bizarre.

What are laughing at? people will ask you.

Fun with Stuff, youll answer. Bruce Smith is a comedy genius. You should buy it. Really. Im not kidding. Like right now.
