The all new Christmas Stocking Joke Book nearly ready

The Christmas Stocking Joke Book came out nearly 30 years ago! I’ve been revising it and updating some of the jokes that either aren’t funny any more or just don’t make sense. I’ve also completely re-illustrated it too – I must be mad!

Back then there were no computers, internet or mobile phones – even Santa has caught up with the times! This is s screen shot of the new cover. I’m hoping to put the whole project to bed this weekend and get it off to the printers, well in time for publication day – 5th October

Old jokes are still funny!

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?

What do you think?
