Funnyosities is guaranteed to raise a smile. --The Scotsman

Product Description

My boss is so narrow minded that when he has an idea, it comes out folded.' 'I used to write her love letters in the sand. But it was an incredible hassle trying to get sand into the pillar box.' 'Do you know the piano's resting on my foot?'. 'No, but hum it and I'll play it'. Chic Murray is a cult figure of alternative humour, a comedic pioneer ranked in the highest echelons of his art in the last century and admired around the world. Funnyosities features a huge number of Chic's funniest one-liners - some well known and others taken from material newly found by the great man's family. This collection is the perfect distillation of Chic's gloriously off-beat humour.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny you should ask 15 Jan 2010
Format:Paperback
At last, a handy little book positively bulging with Chic Murray's singular humour. He was a very funny man with a veiw of life that was close to the absurd and surrealitic, and this book pays deserved tribute to a man who died in 1985.
He was a comedian and an actor (he played the headmaster in Gregory's Girl). His humour was gloriously off-beat as you can tell from opening this book at any page.
For example: "I love food. It's come to the stage where I won't eat anything else."
Or: "His trouble was, he was too late to start earlier."
Or: "I used to write her love letters in the sand. But it was an incredible hassle trying to get the sand into the post box."
Is there a smile hovering around your lips? Then this is the bargain book for you. If it isn't, ah well, never mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious 30 Nov 2010
By Johannsen VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Being written by a family member this book gives a great insight into the real Chic Murray. He was a one off - very dry humour but extremely funny. Once read, it is a good book to dip into for a bit of cheering up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Laugh 18 Dec 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Great jokes, good buy for someone who needs cheering up . Takes a little time to understand the dialect and meaning of some of the stuff. But good fun.
