Book Description

19 July 2012 The Best Ever Book
If you’ve ever heard a Jewish, Italian, Irish, Libyan, Catholic, Mexican, Polish, Norwegian, or an Essex Girl, Newfie, Mother-in-Law, or joke aimed at a minority, this book of Rugby jokes is for you. In this not-so-original book, The Best Ever Book of Rugby Jokes; Lots and Lots of Jokes Specially Repurposed for You-Know-Who, Mark Young takes a whole lot of tired, worn out jokes and makes them funny again. The Best Ever Book of Rugby Jokes is so unoriginal, it’s original. And, if you don’t burst out laughing from at least one Rugby joke in this book, there’s something wrong with you. This book has so many Rugby jokes, you won’t know where to start. For example: Why do Rugby Players wear slip-on shoes? You need an IQ of at least 4 to tie a shoelace. *** An evil genie captured a Rugby Player and her two friends and banished them to the desert for a week. The genie allowed each person to bring one thing. The first friend brought a canteen so he wouldn’t die of thirst. The second friend brought an umbrella to keep the sun off. The Rugby Player brought a car door, because if it got too hot she could just roll down the window! *** Did you hear about the Rugby Player who wore two jackets when she painted the house? The instructions on the can said: “Put on two coats.” *** Why do Rugby Players laugh three times when they hear a joke? Once when it is told, once when it is explained to them, and once when they understand it. ***

2.0 out of 5 stars Best Ever Book of [insert your thing here] Jokes 30 April 2014
By Sir Charles Panther - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I got my copy of this book from a very, very good and old friend, so I will keep it forever, because of the beautiful and heartfelt inscription he wrote for me and because of where he was coming from in buying this for me. He knows me, knows what makes me tick, and delivered perfectly. Thanks, Randy.

But honestly, this joke book is lame. Really lame. It's just a collection of every standard joke you've ever heard about lawyers or blondes or whatever, with "rugby" or "rugby player" inserted at the appropriate point. Like the one about the guys late because of the power outage, stuck on the escalator. Or 100 rugby players at the bottom of the ocean being...wait for it...a good start. Yeah, it's like that, for all 100 pages (big print, lots of white space).

Mr. Young has got a nice racket going here, churning out book after book of the same thing, just titled differently and with the operative word(s) switched out. The book's subtitle of "Lots and Lots of Jokes Specially Repurposed for You-Know-Who" [sic] basically tells you what you're getting, and Young's intro also cops directly to the rampant re-use of ubiquitous jokes. He's got this going on for lawyers (of course), tennis players, Poles, auditors, cat lovers, even nuclear physicists, and then some. Such is the publishing glory of the automated search-and-replace. At the back of the book he lists the hundreds of occupations, nationalities, sports, religions and political parties for which this book is available. You can even order your very own custom The Best Ever Book of [your name here] Jokes.

I read it through; yes, I did. And I did not encounter one single spot-on, unique rugby joke. Nothing about a scrum or a ruck or a maul. Nothing about the try or a drop goal, the innate difference between backs (pretty boys) and forwards (gods), the debate on a prop-forward's humanity or a winger's hair, none of it. Disappointing. Y'know, there are actually rugby joke books out there, that have rugby jokes in them.

The content is not that risqué, although there is some modest sexual content, a joke that features sperm (in a clinical sense), etc. It's suitable for the over-15 market. Acutally, it's probably best for the right-around-15 market.

And the editing quality is sub-par. Lots of errors with quotation marks and capitalization especially.

Bottom line: If you want rugby jokes, there are a ton of better collections out there, and at better prices than this product. If you want rugby jokes, real jokes about the nuances and details of the sport that rugby players and fans will find witty and original, this book isn't the one to get. But if you want a simple book of tried-and-true jokes where you can tailor them yourself to any target demographic you wish to lampoon, this book will do the trick.
