Grab your current read and let the book fall open to a random page. Share two sentences somewhere between lines 7 and 12 and the title of the book that you’re getting the teaser from. Please avoid spoilers! Read the official Tuesday Teaser Rules.
My teaser this week is from The Comedy Thesaurus, subtitled, '3,241 Quips, Quotes, and Smartass Remarks' by Judy Brown. This thick book is comprised of quotes from various comedians and entertainers. I love perusing these sorts of books at bedtime when I'm too tired to read a novel but not quite tired enough to sleep. It's my 'in-between' book.
The Comedy Thesaurus is arranged alphabetically by subject. I'm going to break the rules and post a few quotes.
From page 64:
