I just started reading Catch 22 by Joseph Heller. This book is going to be hilarious.
Here are a few samples of funny I've already stumbled upon.
"The Texan turned out to be good-natured, generous and likable. In three days no one could stand him."
"He decided to live forever or die in the attempt"
"I've got these rubber models in my office with all the reproductive organs of both sexes that I keep locked up in separate cabinets to avoid a scandal"
"Racial prejudice is a terrible thing, Yossarian. It really is. It's a terrible thing to treat a decent, loyal Indian like a nigger, kike wop or spic."
""Sure, that's what I mean," Doc Daneeka said. "A little grease is what makes this world go round. One hand washes the other. Know what I mean? You scratch my back, I'll scratch yours."
Yossarian knew what he meant.
"That's not what I meant," Doc Daneeka said, as Yossarian began scratching his back. "I'm talking about co-operation. Favours. You do a favour for me, I'll do one for you. Get it?"
"Do one for me," Yossarian requested.
"Not a chance," Doc Daneeka answered."
Read this book with me!
