Title: FHM Presents The Best of Bar-Room Jokes
Page Count/Review Word Count: 192
Let me set the record straight – I don’t read FHM, and I never have done. In fact, I’m not even sure why I own this book – I have a feeling it was an unwanted gift from an ex-flatmate. Whatever the reason, I still decided to read and review it – after all, who doesn’t love jokes?
I like my jokes to be funny, and these aren’t. True to its title, the book is packed with the sorts of semi-witticisms you overhear at a bar when two drunks try to seduce a barmaid, accompanied by crappy cartoons that don’t really add to it.
I was planning to end on a one-liner to illustrate the types of jokes that you can expect, but I couldn’t even find one – they’re all too long, and that’s a bad sign in itself. Who’s going to remember a joke the length of a Dickens novel, and who’s going to listen to them when they tell it? This book is a joke…
