? BUMPER BOOK OF CLASSIC AUSTRALIAN JOKES, HUNDREDS OF LAUGHS
It seems what the world needs now is not just love but a lot of laughs.
Offi cial Aussie Joke Book is the commemorative edition of the classic
Australian joke book fi rst published in 1994 and delivers a bounty of sidesplitting
quips and gags.
Nothing is sacred or safe in this bumper collection, with jokes on
everything from sport to animals, politics, love, marriage, travel, religion
and even death. These are the types of jokes you grew up with or heard at
the local pub, sometimes controversial, sometimes scandalous, they are a
time capsule of Australian humour compiled in one entertaining volume.
