In 1066, a Battle of Hastings ensued in England, eventually causing two languages to merge and form modern English. In The Jokes on Me, English language aficionado Jim Purdy provides an entertaining tutorial of jokes, explanations, and associated vocabulary based on this historical transition.
Purdy bases most of his jokes on sex, politics, and religion, depending on the unexpected as he leads serious students of languages to the other side of English. While including jokes not intended for the easily offended, Purdy relies on the experiences he acquired during his frequent travels throughout Europe as he shares jokes as diverse as the world around us. Purdy spares no one from his humorous jabs, including Lady Astor and Sir Winston, the Lone Ranger, and the Pope.
The Jokes on Me is a step-by-step guide that will encourage both novice and experienced students of languages to gain a new appreciation of the American sense of humor while simultaneously enhancing their vocabulary and linguistics abilities.

As George appears before his fawning cronies, he muses over an array of moral topics related to the Bush Administration through a lens of pompous greed, violence, and corruption. With a voice of unconfirmed wisdom, George speaks on love (Only when the love of yourself allows you to trample others without regret have you found the sacred path hidden among many), oil (Truly oil has fed the tasteless dreams of an era while never quenching them), and finally self-knowledge, when he clears his throat and says, Um, cueing everyone in the crowd to take a bathroom break.
In this laugh-out-loud reimagining of events occurring before Bush made his final exit from the White House, a Propheteer is finally provided the opportunity to leave a tiny flame of his spirit behind.
