Although cancer is a devastating disease, it doesn't have to be. Some people have turned it into a tremendous victory. They used many different tools, but the universal tool to raise the spirit is humor. Humor not only raises the spirit, it has proven to be a true healing tool. In 1989, the Journal of the American Medical Association published a study that showed that laughter therapy has an immediate symptom-relieving effect.
For years people have sent me jokes, but most weren't very funny. Something had to be done. For 15 years, when I would receive a really funny joke, I would edit it and put it into a special file. I edit jokes because most jokes are excessively long. Some joke writers think they need to develop the characters. I have assassinated many characters and I have no remorse. What I have is 170 pages of really good, concisely written jokes.
"Just Go Straight You Can't Miss It" is spiral bound so you can easily hold it or lay it on a pillow on your lap. Go ahead fall asleep, you wouldn't even lose your place.
This book is tightly packed with a ton of good jokes such as:
During his term in the White House, Bill and Hillary are at the first baseball game of the season. The umpire walks up to the VIP section and yells something, and suddenly Clinton grabs Hillary by the collar and throws her over the side and onto the field. The stunned umpire shouts, "No, Mr. President. I said, 'Throw the first PITCH."
It asked probing questions such as:
If a man is talking in the woods and no woman hears him, is he still wrong?
I do not feel that dirty jokes belong in a collection of humor for healing. The "F" word is never used although I get close:
I believe the following joke is the limit of poor taste reached in the book:
One man sits down next to another at the airport.
“Boy, that was embarrassing.”
“Well, you know how sometimes things just slip out that you didn't mean to say.”
“Well it just happened to me when I was on line for a transfer.”
I was in line at the ticket counter and the woman in front of me had the tightest pants and biggest tits I have ever seen. Even the woman behind the counter noticed and when I asked for my tickets it just slipped out.”
“What was that?”
“I said, I’d like a pantsfer to Titsburg.”
“Well, I understand exactly how that can happen. Just this morning I was having breakfast with my wife and I meant to say pass the sugar and I actually said ‘you stupid bitch, you ruined my life."
I don't believe a painful story is necessarily funny; it must also be funny. Also, the more painful a joke is, the more difficult it is to feel good after laughing at it. For this reason painful jokes are kept to a minimum. The following example is the extreme of the painful jokes:
A seaman meets a pirate, and they take turns to tell their adventures on the high seas. The seaman notes that the pirate has a peg-leg, hook, and an eye patch.
The seaman asks, "So, how did you end up with the peg-leg?" The pirate replies "Ar, matey, we were in a vicious storm at sea, and I was swept overboard into a school of man-eating sharks. Just as me men were pulling me out, a shark bit me leg off."
"Wow!" said the seaman. "What about your hook?"
"Well," replied the pirate, "We were boarding an enemy ship and were battling the other sailors with swords. One of the enemy cut me hand right off."
"Incredible!" remarked the seaman. "How did you get the eye patch?"
"A seagull dropping fell into me eye," replied the pirate.
"You lost your eye to a seagull dropping?" the sailor asked incredulously.
"Ar, well...," said the pirate, "... it was me first day with the hook..."
