Grant Tucker (Ed.) - 5000 Great One Liners (2nd Hand Paperback)
Whether told in the rugby clubs of Wales or the gentlemen's clubs of London, their sharpness and simplicity unites us all. Short, sweet and wickedly clever, they hold a special place in the annals of comedy, and as the rise of Twitter heralds a resurrection of the art form, there seems no better time to celebrate the immortal one-liner.
In this book, Times diary columnist Grant Tucker does just that, bringing together 5,000 of the funniest one-liners ever told in one definitive volume. Laugh-out-loud funny, 5,000 Great One-Liners has all the quips, zingers, puns and wisecracks you'll ever need - and a whole lot more.
The key to any marriage is spontaneity. You’ve got to be ready to leave at any time.
A priest, a rabbi and a blind man walk into a bar and the bartender says, 'What is this, some kind of joke?'
I got chatting to a lumberjack in a pub. He seemed like a decent feller.
A neutron walks into a bar and says to the barman, 'How much for a pint?' To which the barman replies, 'For you, no charge.'
I'll never forget what my granddad said to me just before he kicked the bucket. He said, 'Grandson, how far do you think I can kick this bucket?'

"This one of those funny books that promotes thought with twisted one-liners. Yes, it is written in British style but the Brits are funny people. It’s a great book to pick up and put down with no commitment; Whether you read it for two minutes or two hours at a time you don’t have to pick up the plot. Enjoy a chuckle or two as it has many one liners you’d love to try and remember for certain situations.." - Amazon Review.
