Some adult joke books are better for the kids. Baby, You’re as Sweet as 3.14159265 is a joke book told in advice column format. This is a slightly more adult version of the kind that teenagers used to pass around, updated for the modern era. There are a lot of gems that you forgot, that you hoped to forget, but somehow keep resurfacing. The jokes are a lot on the silly side, making for the kind of relationship book that works well between friends and, well, those hoping to be much closer friends.
This is not for those with definite sensitivities when it comes to their humor. This is not Seinfeld; this is Rodney Dangerfield for the computer era. As long as you don’t mind a little crudeness, this book can actually be fun, and will probably be passed around by your family and close friends. This is not the kind of book for your friends that prefer their humor to be a little more rarefied, but for the rest of them this may be just the kind of book you pass around when you have had one too many and don’t want to go home just yet.
