‘A hilarious romp through a cornucopia of examples on a dizzying variety of subjects. Quintessential Nilsens' work!'
Salvatore Attardo - Texas A & M University
‘… a must read for any of us in humor studies, English, and several other disciplines … the perfect complement to the former papers on each of the topics covered, all gathered in one readable and clearly written volume. The field of humor research is, as always, greatly enhanced by the Nilsens, and no library would be complete without their newest compilation.'
Joyce M. Saltman - Professor Emeritus, Southern Connecticut State University
‘… it is a very interesting and concise reading … it is an essential reading for everyone who wants to gain a general perspective on humorous issues in important areas of human activity.’
