Humor at the Speed of Life by Ned Hickson
My Rating: 5 of 5 Stars
I’ve been following Ned Hickson’s wonderful blog for quite a while now, and if you don’t, you really should. It is one of the funniest blogs out there, if you ask me. Okay, you didn’t ask me, but I’m volunteering this information, free of charge. Ned Hickson is a funny man. Guess that’s why he also writes a humor column for the Siuslaw News, an Oregon newspaper. If you don’t believe me when I tell you how funny his blog is, check it out for yourself. Or better yet, check out both his blog and his new book, Humor at the Speed of Life, a collection of some of his funniest work.
I love this book! I’ve practically worn it out, reading and reading my favorite columns. I’ve chased my husband around the house and into the garage, reading aloud to him. By the way, he does not think this is funny, Ned Hickson, and says if I don’t stop harassing him in this manner, he’s going to take your book away from me, and revoke my amazon.com privileges. I’m trying to stop. But really, some of this stuff is so good, I just want to share it with others, and chasing Mark around seemed like a better idea than standing on the corner, reading selected columns out loud to various passers by.
If you have need of some good laughs in your life right now, and who doesn’t, you should immediately purchase a copy of Ned’s book. You’ll see what I mean. Before you know it, you, too will be chasing folks round going, “But just listen to this! It’s hilarious, I tell you!”
