It Seemed Funny at the Time: A Large Collection of Short Humor
by David Lubar
David Lubar has gathered his best magazine pieces from the past fifteen years, tossed in his most popular works from the early days of online humor, bundled up the comedy material from his national conference talks, and stuffed everything in one juicy volume.
Here's what two of the funniest guys on the planet have to say:
"In this sweeping collection, David Lubar turns his crafty eye to everything from home brewing to the Human Genome Project. His analysis -- as always -- is quirky, clever, and hilarious."
That's from Joshua Malina, famous actor (Sports Night, The West Wing), writer/producer (Backwash), and comic genius entertaining the masses via all manner of social media.
"David Lubar: Funny enough to pay for. And I did, several times!"
Thus sayeth John Scalzi, award-winning science-fiction author (Old Man's War), humorist, world famous blogger, and highly perceptive former humor editor for America Online.
Health care, telemarketers, celebrity picture books, Amish buggy rides, pigeon shoots, tasteless sneaker ads, inept Olympic broadcasters, and lots more -- it all seemed funny at the time. And, happily, it still does. Along with a ton of humor aimed at a general audience, there are special sections for computer geeks, writers, librarians, teachers, and fans of young-adult novels. Check it out. It's a lot of funny for just a little money.
