Forget The Philosophy, Go For The Jokes

After finishing the monumental work of The Path Between The Seas: The Creation Of The Panama Canal, 1870-1914 by David McCullough, I went for something a little lighter: Plato And A Platypus Walk Into A Bar… Understanding Philosophy Through Jokes.  It was exactly what I needed.

Honestly, I couldn’t even tell you about all the philosophers that were covered and the unique philosophy of each. Rather, this book ended up being laugh out loud hysterical with great jokes. There are jokes for opening a speech, jokes for a dinner party, and some you can tell to your family and friends. Yes, some are a little blue, but there are many that are clean and hysterical.

If you have a sense of humor and love great jokes, read this book. Oh yea, and if you like philosophy and humour, you should read this book also. It’s a quick read and I promise, promise, promise, you’ll laugh out loud and smile.
