BUMPER BOOK OF CLASSIC AUSTRALIAN JOKES, HUNDREDS OF LAUGHS
It seems what the world needs now is not just love but a lot of laughs. Official Aussie Joke Book is the commemorative edition of the classic Australian joke book first published in 1994 and delivers a bounty of sidesplitting quips and gags.
Nothing is sacred or safe in this bumper collection, with jokes on everything from sport to animals, politics, love, marriage, travel, religion and even death. These are the types of jokes you grew up with or heard at the local pub, sometimes controversial, sometimes scandalous, they are a time capsule of Australian humour compiled in one entertaining volume.
