Title: The Bumper B3ta Book of Sick Jokes
Author: Rob Manuel
Page Count/Review Word Count: 182
Rob Manuel is the guy who founded both B3ta and Sickipedia, two popular websites that are dedicated to an alternative sense of humour. Here, he collects the best jokes that his websites’ users have to offer, and they’re pretty funny even if they are also super offensive.
But hell – I don’t have a problem with controversial jokes, as long as we accept that that’s what it is. If you can’t laugh and joke about some of the darker things about life on this planet then what exactly is the point?
It’s not an incredible book, because most joke books aren’t – that said, it’s a good laugh and it’ll put a smile on your face for a little while, even if it doesn’t leave a lasting impression. Just be sure you have a shifty look around you before you tell any of these jokes at the pub, unless you want to get a punch.
