It’s Saturday. It’s pretty outside. I’m going to the wedding of the daughter of one of my two oldest friends (since we were 9th graders — 40 years) where I will also get to visit with my other oldest friend whom I don’t get to see nearly often enough.

I don’t want to think about all the bad things in the world. I want fun. I want a list of really funny books to read. I want to know the funniest books you’ve ever read.

I have a three-way tie for my funniest book:

Tom Holt’s Expecting Someone Taller
This is the sequal to the Ring of Nibelungen Wagner could never have written.

Fran Lebowitz’s Metropolitan Life
Essays that should never be read when you have anything in your mouth. A sample quote: “If you are of the opinion that the contemplation of suicide is sufficient evidence of a poetic nature, do not forget that actions speak louder than words.”

Calvin Trilln’s Alice Let’s Eat
The funniest book about food and family ever written.
