Brilliantly Insane (or is it Insanely Brilliant?)

Jack Handey is consistently funny and irreverent in all forms - whether it was his writing during his SNL years, his many "Deep Thoughts" books, or his newer stuff. His "insights" are often worthy of a sincere laugh-out-loud, and sometimes cruel enough to feel a twinge of guilt for having enjoyed the suffering of the character Handey creates. The book is simply another collection of Handey's brilliant one-liners and insane situations. If you're not familiar with this style of humor, I HIGHLY suggest you at least do a search for "Deep Thoughts" before jumping in - it's defintely not for everyone. Otherwise this is a great buy or a gift for someone who enjoys Handey. Despite the fact that almost all of the "Deep Thoughts" are on the Internet already, a hard copy is nice to have available on your desk to help get you through some of those rough days. Plus, it's always great to support (even in the smallest way) writers as funny as Handey.

Masterful

Jack Handy is well known on SNL, but it's not until you read his words on paper that you realize the scope and depth of his thoughts. He is without a doubt one of the funniest people of all time, and I'm sure that even the legendary Mark Twain would have been seriously impressed with the wit and humor of Handy.

dog gone funny

as expected with jack handey, the book is random and so dog gone funny. (i think that the postcard book is funnier, just fyi). my only real complaint was that the book is cheaply made. there are only about 5 black and white ink-jet quality pictures of nature used, and then on top of that they are repeated throughout the book. perhaps that adds to the handey charm.

Beer out my nose

If this book doesn't cheer you up, nothing will. I suppose you have to get the humor... but if you do you will read Jack Handy thoughts and laugh just as hard as the first time you read it.

Handey makes you laugh AND think(or the other way around)

Modern "philosophizer" and Saturday Night Live scribe Jack Handey's second installment in the Deep Thoughts series falls short of the author's own criteria for literary greatness ("at the very end, there's a page you can lick and it tastes like Kool-Aid" says Handey of the ideal novel), but it is nonetheless a consistently funny collection of a unique brand of humor. Handey's offbeat musings, familiar to viewers of early 1990's SNL, are somewhat more sophisticated than fortune cookies, much more readable than Nietsche or Chomsky, and funnier than all of the above. The book contains close to 100 Deep Thoughts, ranging from some which provoke a thoughtful chuckle to others which will have you laughing out loud before you even finish reading them. If you are a Handey fan, chances are you already have this book. If you are unfamiliar with Deep Thoughts, I recommend you check out this book for a simple but hearty laugh - it is a nice contrast to the political satire, funny golf books and comic strip collections that dominate humor publishing. For as Handey says, "Dad always thought laughter was the best medicine, which I guess is why several of us died of tuberculosis." In short, it's easy to sit there and say you'd like to have more books by Jack Handey. And I guess that's what I like about it. It's easy. Just sitting there, rocking back and forth, wanting those books.
