"Did you hear the one about..." Every great joke has a punch line, and every great humor writer has an arsenal of experiences, anecdotes, and obsessions that were the inspiration for that humor. In fact, those who make a career out of entertaining strangers with words are a notoriously intelligent and quirky lot. And boy, do they have some stories. In this entertaining and inspirational book, you'll hear from 21 top humor writers as they discuss the comedy-writing process, their influences, their likes and dislikes, and their experiences in the industry. You'll also learn some less useful but equally amusing things, such as: How screenwriter Buck Henry came up with the famous "plastics" line for "The Graduate." How many times the cops were called on co-writers Sacha Baron Cohen and Dan Mazer during the shooting of "Borat." What David Sedaris thinks of his critics. What creator Paul Feig thinks would have happened to the "Freaks and Geeks" crew if the show had had another season. What Jack Handey considers his favorite "Deep Thoughts." How Todd Hanson and the staff of The Onion managed to face the aftermath of 9/11 with the perfect dose of humor. How Stephen Merchant and Ricky Gervais created the original version of "The Office." What it's really like in the writers' room at SNL. Funny and informative, And Here's the Kicker is a must-have resource—whether you're an aspiring humor writer, a fan of the genre, or someone who just likes to laugh.

Do women really spend more time in the bathroom? Are men truly more gifted when it comes to handling the remote control? Will women ever understand the intense concentration demanded by Monday Night Football? Chuck and Barb Snyder (who reveal that their only area of compatibility is having the same kids and grandkids) tackle these and other questions in Incompatibility: (Still) Grounds for a Great Marriage, an entertaining, insightful, and sensible primer on marriage for Christian couples. Ten years after their popular original book, they've teamed up again to present new material and elaborate on their original themes. Readers will learn that differences between couples are actually part of God's plan for marriage and should be viewed as assets, not liabilities.

The inspiration of this book came from the death of my mother, Frances Edith Nix Tolliver. She died February 19th, 2007. She was born April 24th, 1920, I was fortunate enough to have her 56 years of my life. We are not raised to die, we are raised to live, even though the plot from mankind is like they would do sheep, cows or chickens although you are cared for to a certain degree, you are not going to make it out of this world alive. My thought on this is, that if we were raised to die, there would probably be more tragedy, probably be more destruction and chaos, and then again maybe not. I also agree that because there are enormous amounts of people, and quite a few that would like to run the world a certain way, we will never unite to a calm and peace that can exist given the right circumstances.

In this satiric romp inspired by Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, set in 2041, government-sanctioned vigilantes—the Good Humor Men—ruthlessly patrol the streets, immolating all fattening food products as illegal contraband. A pound of real chocolate is worth more on the black market than a kilo of cocaine. Evil “nutraceutical” company MannaSantos controls the food market with genetically modified products, such as “Leanie Lean” meats. But the craze for svelte healthfulness has reached a critical turning point, as a mysterious wasting plague threatens to starve all of humanity. A lone ex-plastic surgeon and founding Good Humor Man, whose father performed a secret liposuction surgery on Elvis Presley, holds the key to humanity’s future. In a mad dash to retrieve his family heirloom—the mortal remains of the King’s belly fat—Dr. Louis Shmalzberg becomes entangled with a civil servant of questionable motives, an acquisitive assassin from a wealthy Caliphate, a power-mad preacher evangelizing anorexia, a beautiful young woman addicted to liposuction, and a homicidal clone from a MannaSantos experiment gone terribly wrong. Can Elvis save the world sixty-four years after his death?
