Abstract:

So begins Wit, a collection of hilarious quotes from the famous and infamous by author Des MacHale. MacHale has been collecting quotes over the past 20 years from books, magazines, newspapers, radio, television, film, and any other source imaginable. His criteria for "quotable" quotes is stringent: They must be fresh, concise, and above all, funny! Categorized into 20 chapters such as Food; Politics; Religion; Social Behavior and Manners; Love, Sex, Marriage, Men, and Women; and Lawyers and other Professions, Wit is guaranteed to double up any reader with laughter. The list of hundreds of celebrities' uproarious, provocative, and sometimes downright dim-witted words includes such quips as: "For some reason, a glaze passes over people's faces when you say Canada."--Sondra Gottliebo. "If it sells, it's art." -Frank Lloydo "I owe a lot to my parents-especially my mother and father." -Gary Player. Wit is refreshingly honest and funny and is sure to become a best-seller!
