While debating Sir Winston on the House of Commons, Lady Astor says, Sir Winston, if I were your wife, I should poison your tea. Sir Winston replies, Madam, if I were your husband, I would drink it. In 1066, a Battle of Hastings ensued in England, eventually causing two languages to merge and form modern English. In The Jokes on Me, English language aficionado Jim Purdy provides an entertaining tutorial of jokes, explanations, and associated vocabulary based on this historical transition. Purdy bases most of his jokes on sex, politics, and religion, depending on the unexpected as he leads serious students of languages to the other side of English. While including jokes not intended for the easily offended, Purdy relies on the experiences he acquired during his frequent travels throughout Europe as he shares jokes as diverse as the world around us. Purdy spares no one from his humorous jabs, including Lady Astor and Sir Winston, the Lone Ranger, and the Pope. The Jokes on Me is a step-by-step guide that will encourage both novice and experienced students of languages to gain a new appreciation of the American sense of humor while simultaneously enhancing their vocabulary and linguistics abilities.

Like my first literary attempt, The Jokes on Me, this book is primarily a collection of editorials and letters to the editor of the local newspaper, along with running commentary and some attempted justification for the foolishness. The first book would not exist if it hadnt been for the insistence of several people that all this should be in a book. Most of the letters to the editor in this first section were written under the guise of the Greater Sycamore Valley Chamber of Commerce, an entity that existed only in the minds of its readers. Some of the letters were just personal reflections on the situation of the day. Some of the letters may seem terribly redundant, but I never was one to pass up an opportunity to tell the same joke twice. The second and most important part of this book contains Sunday Guest Editorials, which I have written for publication in the local newspaper. These editorials deal with issues of a religious nature and were written in the hope that they would stimulate readers to contemplate their own relationship with the One who spoke and all things came into existence.
