When you’re a junior high school English teacher, you need a sense of humor to survive. And for forty-seven years, author A. G. Sloan has not only survived but also thrived—on practicing his comedic skills on captive audiences.

Now, he’s moved on to cracking up adult audiences from all walks of life.

This collection of forty hilarious articles offers his twisted take on topics to which almost everyone can relate.

Why forty, you ask? “I stopped there because forty is a significant number: forty winks, forty days and nights of the great flood, Lizzie Borden’s number of axe whacks, and the last age that made any sense to me.”

This book is filled with fatherly, grandfatherly, and fairly snarky advice that might or might not help you navigate the complexities of today’s world. Among the useful things you’ll learn are:

  • Why people use “there’s” with a plural
  • How to save the educational system
  • How to get your grandkids to find your glasses
  • Some catchy headlines for punching up obituaries
  • Whatever happened to Elvis

OK, so that thing about Elvis might not be useful, but the answer is funny—and now, you must buy this book to find out!

About the Author:

A. G. Sloan used his humor for thirty-seven years as a junior high school English and reading teacher. Over the years, he has written short stories, humor articles, and ideas for captions for cartoonists. Recently, he has been contributing humor pieces to Funny Times, all of which appear here.

His other claim to fame is that he received 129 write-in votes in the 2006 Illinois gubernatorial election. The winner of that election is now in prison.

Sloan lives with Pixie, his wife of forty-three years, in Morris, Illinois. They have two sons and five grandchildren.
