Wit Hits the Spot by Des MacHale
This was second volume in Des MacHale's best-selling Wit series, the best collection of witty remarks ever published. This volume was previously published as More Wit but under that title it languished; it looked like an also ran, yet it was every bit as good as the original Wit. It joins Wit, Wit - the Last Laugh, Wit on Target and Wit Rides Again in this magnificent compendium of short, sharp quips. The wonderful Des MacHale, Mathematics Professor at University College, Cork, and lifetime collector of funny remarks and devastating repartee, is the star performer at humour conferences round the world, and is the author of a multitude of books. The volume is organised by theme, so all the quotations on medicine and doctors, for example, are together, as are quotes relating to media and films, sports, politics, love and marriage, sex, food, family and relations, education and many other subjects. As well as brilliant quotes from classic humorists such as Oscar Wilde and Woody Allen, we have Noel Coward, Winston Churchill, Lenny Bruce, Rita Rudner, Groucho Marx, WC Fields, Spike Milligan etc, etc. "Sport - "The first time I went skiing I wasn't very good at it and I broke a leg. Thank goodness it wasn't one of mine." Michael Green; Family and Relations - "Poverty is hereditary. You get it from your children." Phyllis Diller"
