Looks like I’ve got another book to ask the library to purchase. (One of the benefits of having the second largest library in the state right down the road.)

I remember longing to buy those sea monkeys, whoopee cushions and x-ray specs that I knew deep down in my 8-year old gut would make me the envy of all the other boys.
I’m hoping it will be half as good as Cheap Laffs : The Art of the Novelty Item which was another inspired library acquisition.
