"My grandfather died peacefully in his sleep. Which is more than I can say for the three passengers he had in his car at the time."
At school, John Blackman was voted the student most likely to recede. Despite this, he has emerged as one of our best-loved funny men. Now the master of the microphone on TV's 'Hey Hey It's Saturday', the voice behind the hat that is Dickie Knee, the king of the backhanders has compiled over 1400 of his all-time favourite one-liners and jokes.
"It was so cold today, I saw a politician with his hand in his own pocket."
Following the side-splitting success of his previous books Don't Come the Raw Prawn! and The Best of Aussie Slang, John has become the undisputed master of Aussie lingo. Now he takes on his biggest challenge to date: to plumb the depths of the Aussie sense of humour!
"I have a lot of trouble sleeping. Sometimes I toss and turn at my desk all day."
Ever wished you could come up with an unforgettable one-liner at a crucial moment? Or be known as the king or queen of jokes? This is the definitive book of jokes from all over the world that make Aussies laugh.
I am not stealing!
It's called research:)
I have had the honour and pleasure of working with JB on and (mostly) off for almost 35 years. Amazing because I am not even 40 yet if John (according to be book) is only 50:)
Great Book by one of Australia's Greatest!
