There are many books of general quotations. There are relatively few books specifically of funny quotes.

The author of this book operates a website called allgreatquotes.com, which is a great resource. Previously, I used to do my quote searches on Thinkexist, and I still do. The challenge, in finding funny quotes is that usually they are organised by author, a topic search, or a word search, or a specific pattern, but not necessarily a category search like humor. So, when I learned about this book, I thought this a refreshing and different way to look at quotes. And, when I bought it it opened up a whole new world. If you're like me you may discover for yourself a whole new world of funny quotes on a wide variety of topics.

As you can expect with someone who runs a quote website, and presumably loves, and is an expert on quotations, much thought has been put into quality testing the quotes, and producing what I consider to be a high quality collection of quotes. What I particuarly like is that he has gone beyond the usual suspects,who are included, and included some unusual ones, catering to a variety of tastes not only an American palate, or an English palate, or even an Irish palate, but an eclectic variety that will appeal to every palate.

You may not for example have of Joanna Brand, an English comedian, or Hal Roach, an Irish comedian, or you may not have thought Jackie Kennedy was funny, or Alfred Hitchcock, or Sigmund Freud, but guess what?

I took this book on an overseas trip, and inevitably people would pick it up, leaf through it, laugh out loud, and insist on reading the particular quote, in fact several. I made so many notes on my original copy as I like to analyse quotes so I bought a second one.

Here a few examples from the book:

Watching your daughter being collected by a date feels like handing over a million dollar Stradivarius to a gorilla. Jim Bishop.

The English may not like music, but they love the noise it makes. Thomas Beecham.

By all means marry; if you get a good wife, you'll become happy; if you get a bad one you'll become a philosopher. Socrates.

Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country, and our people. And neither do we. George W. Bush

I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us like equals. Winston Churcill, attributed.

..woo her, wed her, and bed her, and rid the house of her. William Shakespeare, The Taming of the Shrew.

He's been called, cold, rude, self centered, arrogant, and egostistical. But that's just his family's opinion. Bob Monkhouse.

The quotes are arranged by order of topics, such as: Americans, English, Canadians, Sex, Love, Marriage, insults, battle of the sexes. One of my favorites was dumbest things ever said. Among the many included: Oscar Wilde, Dave Barry, Phyllis Diller, Mae West, George Bernard Shaw, James Joyce, Mark Twain, David Letterman, Rita Rudner, Jay Leno, Billy Crystal, Robin Williams and many many more.

If you're like most people, and I like to think I am, I think you will enjoy this book. I hope this was helpful.

As a quotes junkie, I have a ton of scribbled quotes all over the house; but unfortunately some are lost forever. So it's nice to have a published compilation I won't lose and that I can delve into, time and time again. Tom Corr has done an excellent job in what would have been a mammoth task in collecting, verifying, and categorizing more than 2,320 humorous quotes - in diverse areas such as animals, chocolate, education, happiness, life, music, pessimists, friends, and everything else in between; even country-specific quips. If you like to use quotes in your speeches or written works, you'll appreciate the diverse categories where you can quickly source a quote and have peace of mind that the quote is correctly referenced; and that it will make your audience or reader laugh! And if you're after a quick shot of laughter, then this is the perfect book to pick up and get lost between the pages for awhile.

"The 2,320 Funniest Quotes," compiled by Tom Corr, is subtitled "the most hilarious quips and one-liners from allgreatquotes.com." Many of the entries are cute, witty, thought-provoking, and amusing, but most of them are not, by any stretch of the imagination, hilarious.

"Funniest Quotes" is arranged according to theme, such as education, death, happiness, love, marriage, religion, and television. Each quotation is followed by the name of the person who supposedly said it first. (In some cases, the attribution is in doubt.) "Quotes" will likely appeal to those who remember the old-time comedians such as Henny Youngman and Rodney Dangerfield. Their one-liners are as funny on the page as they were on stage. On the other hand, Shakespeare, whose words appear in almost every chapter, is undeniably a brilliant poet and playwright, but he is hardly a laugh riot. In addition, Oscar Wilde's sayings appear frequently. He was as sharp-tongued and witty as anyone who ever lived, but his comments are more sophisticated, clever, and cerebral than they are uproarious. It should also be noted that quite a few of the quotations are familiar, which eliminates the element of surprise. For some reason, Corr included a number of sexist and racist quotations, which some readers may find offensive.

A few of the most memorable lines are in the first chapter, "Actors, Hollywood, and the Movies." I still love this one from a Goldie Hawn movie: "There are only three ages for women in Hollywood--Babe, District Attorney, and Driving Miss Daisy." Or the line by Walter Winchell: "Hollywood is where they shoot too many pictures and not enough actors." Woody Allen, Phyllis Diller, P. J. O'Rourke, Davy Barry, Roseanne Barr, and Rita Rudner are all consistently entertaining. What makes their sayings so striking is not just their humor, but the kernel of truth, cynicism and, at times, anger that underlie their words.

Public speakers who need material to capture their audience's attention might want to purchase "Funniest Quotes." However, the buyer should be aware that this is a browsing book; it does not contain an index. (Three and a half stars.)

IT WAS FUNNY READ AT TIMES!!
  • Ballardana
Very disappointed. This book only lives up to the 2320 quotes part of the title. A total waste of reading time;
I buy these types of books to kill time otherwise lost spent waiting in lines or on hold while on the phone. This was an enjoyable read.
