Warning Read With Caution!

When Humor Me, the new anthology of contemporary humor writing edited by Ian Frazier, first materialized in my interstellar inbox, I foolishly believed it to be a birthday present from my dear friend Justin at the Greenwood Space Travel Supply Store. Silly me - I forgot my birthday wasn’t until Star Date 3.456.09. And so I started reading, and soon found that I was inescapably caught in the hilarity of such writers as Steve Martin, Veronica Geng, and Jack Handy. No sooner had I flipped page 25, than I found that the Roddenbaumer Beta starship I was "piloting" had been inescapably caught in the gravitational pull of a Black Hole.  So if you must read this book--for the love of God--do not read it while driving, drinking milk, shaving, piloting large mechanical machinery, or sitting in at the DMV.
