A cross between the Unofficial Gay Manual and the SNAPS! series, Fag Gags: Reads By, For & About The Children celebrates, as its introduction states, the "crass wit, unquestionable timing, and acid tongues" of Black same-gender-loving men. Hardy and his co-author, Hassan X, have compiled a host of hilarious one-liners that poke fun at many figures inside (The "Blundering Ball Queen") and outside (The "Chocoholic") of African-American gay circles. While some of the gags will be familiar to non-Black and non-gay readers (on the "Frustrated Female," who can't understand why any man would "choose" to be gay, the authors declare: "Honee, I am more woman that you'll ever be and more man than you'll ever get!"), others are taken from the contemporary Black gay scene (on the "Homiesexual," the Brutha who just doesn't think he is all man but the Man: "You're on the down low? Ha, don't you mean you get down low?").
