The Very Embarrassing Book of Dad Jokes by Ian Allen

Review by The Mole

My daughter generally buys me a book each Christmas that is either based on a comedy TV series or one that is packed with jokes and I have to admit it becomes a bit of a highlight for me.

This year it was this gem. Many of this collection can be retitled "Christmas cracker jokes" - and if that sounds bad may I assure it's not. One cracker joke on its own may grate but when they come thick and fast then they become all the funnier for it - even when you are sober.

But as you read the 223 pages you will need to share them with whoever can stand your company while you tell them - the ones you really need to share.

Once again she has made a great choice for a great present and while many aren't "new" it was surprising how many were.

"How do you turn a duck into a soul singer? - put it in a microwave until its bill withers"
"What was Beethoven's fifth favourite fruit? - ba-na-na-na"

223 glorious pages of them.
