Are you in need of a good laugh? Are you depressed? Or sick? The jokes collected in "Funny Stories" should push your problems out of your mind and tickle your funny bone. Consider this example: An Italian man boasts to his friends: "Last night I covered my wife with fine olive oil, and then we made love. She screamed for 5 minutes." His French friend then says: "Last night I covered my wife with sweet butter. we made fantastic love. She screamed for 15 minutes." The Jewish man relates: "Last night I covered my wife with schmaltz. She screamed for 6 hours!" "Wow! What DID you do?" asked the others. "I wiped my hands on the drapes." "Funny Stories" is a collection of many preposterous little stories like this one, meant to bring chuckles, or better, loud laughter into your day. The jokes were selected for quality and grouped in categories; both of course subject to the taste of the compiler of this little collection, Ryan Hart. Many were illustrated by Anna Ariel for further amusement.
