Some old jokes are still funny. I’m currently working on updating the Christmas Stocking Joke Book, which was a number 3 best seller back in 1989 when it fist came out – beaten by Matilda and Prince Caspian!
I now have the rights back and I’m updating it to bring out this Christmas – probably a bit late! Some of the jokes are very dated – some are now politically incorrect – though I’m surprised how few – and some are still very funny – well, they made me titter then and still do now.
My favourite so far?
Grandad suffers terribly from wind, so we bought him a kite for Christmas!
I know, there is still a nine year old boy inside desperate to get out.
Of the new jokes I’m thinking of adding, I just can’t quite decide if I should put in:
What does Miley Cyrus eat on Christmas Day? Twerky!
MagicBlox is a new website that allows anyone to post their children’s book for online viewing. If you visit the site, you will be able to see my vintage book, My First Picture Joke Book, brought to life along with a few other early adopter works.
Those who know me and have followed my internet doings over the years, will know that I almost started something like this a couple of years ago. I didn’t have the time or patience to really get it working, so I’m indebted to Jason Lane of MagicBlox for getting this off the ground.
You can get a month’s absolutely free, no-strings access to try it out by using the code BLOX5K in the ordering process.
This is so similar to the model I had in mind, I can give it my full support.
I hope you’ll go and have a look. Please click the facebook like logo to let me have a chance of winning an ipad!
When you’ve had a look, come back here and make a comment. I’d really be interested to know what you think.
