All vital matters are up for ridicule in The Penguin Book of More Canadian Jokes, master gatherer John Robert Colombo's companion to the popular The Penguin Book of Canadian Jokes. In this second hilarious collection of jokes, riddles, puns, anecdotes, and lore, you'll find popular pokes at all things Canadian, including politics, multiculturalism, small-town life, sexual habits, our favourite national pastime -- weather watching -- and much more. This assortment is a rich, tickle-me addition to our national inventory of wit. The added kicker is the appendix of two dozen ripe classics: the jokes and anecdotes that -- though weathered -- have "laughed us" through the ages. Book jacket.
