I've been a casual fan of Jack Handey ever since I first heard "Deep Thoughts with Jack Handey" on the radio way back in what seems like ancient times. (For reference, Deep Thoughts debuted in the mid-80's.) While reading The Stench of Honolulu it took me a few chapters to get reacquainted with Handey's particular brand of dry, dead-pan humor, but once there, I was cracking up at practically every other line.

My wife has an aunt who's zany and fun to be around, and while reading this book I realized her humor is very much Jack Handey-esque. At one point, I pictured it was she who wrote the book instead of Handey, and it helped me appreciate the both of them even more.

I'd very much like to find someone writing as pithily in a Romance Language. That'd help my French, Spanish, Italian, Romanian, or Portuguese reading and speaking skills, immediately.

Very silly and very funny. Reads like a lost Simpsons episode, starring Homer.
