I have two unpostable joke books. Both are completely readable but are unpostable due to wear, tear and stains. I'll send both to anyone who needs a laugh for a credit. The books are:

1) The Beverly Hillbillies Book of Country Humor :: Edited by Lewis R. Benton, Ph.D.

Sample:

Jethro: "My grandfather fought in the first World War. My great grandfather fought the Indians. And my great-great grandfather fought with Napoleon."

Elly May: "Boy, your folks couldn't get along with nobody."

2) 101 Smiles, Chuckles and Hearty Laughs :: As Told To The Old Man of the Mountains, Elliott S. Barker, L.L.D. (Hon.)

Sample:

A Test of Friendship

A hunting guide claimed he had often been bitten by rattlesnakes and saved his life by cutting a cross in the wound and sucking the poison out. Asked what to do if bitten on the buttocks, he said, "That's when you find out whether you have a true friend or not."

If you want them, post here and then PM me.

Just an FYI... You are not allowed to ask for credits for unpostable books. You can offer them as an extra with a book from your shelf.

Actually, according to April's newswire and verified with an e-mail to TPTB (by another member) and posted on another forum, I can. I just have to make sure to mention that they're unpostable, which I did, and I can't post them to the system, which I didn't.

However, I'm more than willing to offer either one as a freebie with a book off my shelf.
