“Being cheerful keeps you healthy. It is slow death to be gloomy all the time.” So goes an old saying (Prov 17:22, Bible). This book is almost a take-off from that saying! Laughter can be produced both by fiction that amuses as well as by things that amaze. But helping people stay healthy by way of lifting the pall of gloom and having them rock with laughter is no laughing matter. Rather, it is serious business. And that business, Judson K Cornelius has taken seriously enough to prompt him to bring out this collection of anecdotes concerning real life as well fictional happenings and of facts that provoke not just laughter but also thought. Each little item herein, caricaturing just about anyone from monks to bishops and cardinals, and from nuns to saints, for once making them a ‘laughing stock’ or the butt of jokes, hits the funny bone whereby the reader is tickled into a chuckle or made to burst into laughter! Furthermore, the clean nature of each item makes More Church Humour absolutely safe for use by anyone from every point of view. Be it preacher, teacher or public speaker, all will find its use very practical, given the comprehensive division of the book into easily referable sections. In fact, even youth and children could derive much satisfaction from occasionally flipping through it. After all, whatever can bring about unadulterated mirth cannot but be an asset to healthy fun

Judge: You say it was an accident that you shot your wife? Defendant: Yes, Your Honour. She got in front of my mother-in-law just as I pulled the trigger. An eighty-year-old man with young ideas had married a girl of twenty-two years, and more than anything else in the world, he wanted a son. He went to his doctor and explained the situation. "I am sorry," said the doctor. "You may be heir-minded, but you're not heir-conditioned." Household Humour is another presentation of Judson K. Cornelius following right in the steps of his overwhelmingly popular Church Humour, Campus Humour and Literary Humour. This anthology with all its hilarity offers the reader many hours of enjoyment and relaxation. As you read it, remember the words of a famous barb: "Laughter is the shortest distance between two people."
