Laughter comes from surprise and there's plenty of that to be had in these pages. Everyone is encouraged to make up their own funny words and definitions.
Mark Friedman is an invertebrate punster, who has been annoying family and friends with puns for most of his life. He is the author of a one act comedy "Waiting for Waiting for Godot" and a rom-com screen play "That Voice in Your Head," and several other (serious) books (also on amazon), but this one was the most fun to write. Mark lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico and is married to the writer Terry Wilson, author of the very funny and touching memoir Confessions of a Failed Saint.
