Deep Thoughts: Inspiration for the Uninspired Reviews

    There was a time when "Deep Thoughts by Jack Handy" was the only part of SNL's hour and a half that made me laugh. Handy's absurdist humor touched my funnybone, and my funnybone is a queer little fella. It takes odd observations, as seen below, to set me to tittering. Handy and his Deep Thoughts collection's got what I need! To me, clowns aren't funny. In fact, they're kinda scary. I've wondered where this started, and I think it goes back to the time I went to the circus and a clown killed my dad. The face of a child can say it all, especially the mouth part of the face. I believe in making the world safe for our children, but not our children's children, because I don't think children should be having sex. I wish I would have a real tragic love affair and get so bummed out that I'd just quit my job and become a bum for a few years, because I was thinking about doing that anyway.If you're a cowboy and you're dragging a guy behind your horse, I bet it would really make you mad if you looked back and the guy was reading a magazine. I hope life isn't a big joke, because I don't get it.

    I just pulled out my old copy of this today. What a timeless classic! One on my favorites- "If a kid asks where rain comes from, I think a cute thing to tell him is 'God is Crying'. And if asks why God is crying, another cute thing to tell him is "Probably because of something you did'.

    You're probably familiar with Jack Handey's hilarious Deep Thoughts if you watched Saturday Night Live in the 1990's. This super quick read provides random and completely irrelevant thoughts on life and many other odd things. Don't come here looking for eloquent prose or thought-provoking text, simply read Handey's hilarious one liners and enjoy the feel of the smile that will without a doubt appear on your face. There are several sequels to this book along with a collection of family-related anecdotes called "Fuzzy Memories." Don't be sad when you finish the book, simply run out and get the next one!Let these remind you of old times. Better times. Times when SNL was funny!

    If you start reading this, you might, at first, think it's a lame quotations book, but as you read further, you'll realize it's actually not - it's a lame AND FUNNY quotations book.Just to give you taste of it's dry humour:Sometimes when I feel like killing someone, I do a little trick to calm myself down. I'll go over to the persons house and ring the doorbell. When the person comes to the door, I'm gone, but you know what I've left on the porch? A jack-o-lantern with a knife stuck in the side of it's head with a note that says "You." After that I usually feel a lot better, and no harm done.Real deep thoughts!

    If a kid asks where rain comes from, I think a cute thing to tell him is "God is crying." And if he asks why God is crying, another cute thing to tell him is "Probably because of something you did."One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. "Oh no," I said, "Disneyland burned down." He cried and cried, but I think that deep down, he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.

    i found this gem in a thrift store for 50 cents. it never ceases to make me laugh. i'll often just pick it up off the coffee table and read a page and it will keep a smile on my face for the day. my favorite part being the disneyland piece (too funny!) it's a great coffee table book for homes of the dry & witty humored!

    "I wonder if we'd be so cavilier about cutting trees down if they could scream. I but we would if they screamed all the time and for no good reason."

    Yup, still disturbing. Heres a few I really laughed at though.I wish I had a kryptonite cross, because then you could keep both Dracula and Superman away.If you're a young Mafia gangster out on your first date,I bet it's really embarrassing if someone tries to kill you.I think in one of my previous lives I was a mighty king, because I like people to do what I say.If the Vikings were around today, they would probably be amazed at all the glow-in-the-dark stuff we have, and how we take so much of it for granted.

    The best thing about this book was reading it sitting on the floor in the bible section of Barnes and Noble with Jenny and cracking up to the point where we almost got kicked out. Reading them aloud with someone else is the best thing ever - or maybe only when it is done with The Jenny. Many, many people are not hilarious enough to "get" the jokes, though. I, however, am not one of those people.

    There is no mood so bad I can't be made happy again by reading some Deep Thoughts.

    Nice, dry humor in short quotes. Handey (SNL writers) is crazy, funny, and seemingly fixated with death and dismemberment. I read it while hanging out in B&N.

    Mrs. J.D. Johnson, my 11th grade English teacher, confiscated this book from me. To retaliate, I refused to read Pride and Prejudice.

    Someone just gave this to me, very funny. I would have rated it higher but a third of the material wasn't funny but the rest more then made up for it.

    If I have to explain why any Jack Handey book would receive 5 stars, then don't even bother picking up the book.

    Would I have had anything besides Simpsons to quote in middle school without this book? Who knows.
