Why We Suck

Denis Leary = Comedic Genius. And as an added bonus, he seems to be a great family man and keen observer of life's funniest moments. I dog-eared a lot of the pages in this book (which is the highest compliment a reader can give to an author.)

I loved what he said in the first chapter especially. Read below:

"... there are endless things you can buy in America - but a sense of humor isn't one of them.

We got pills and potions for your head, face, fears, tits, ass, anxieties, colon, kidneys, alcohol addiction, drug jones, heart, lungs, lips and attitude - but we don't have anything that can make you laugh at yourself."

Denis Leary, thank you for reminding me that you can learn a lot of things... but a sense of humor isn't one of them. Mom and dad, thank you for blessing me with a sense of humor that has gotten me through some ridiculously unfunny situations. I have learned that everything is funny if you look at it crookedly enough. And really, is there any other way to look at some of the crap that has happened to me?!

Now go out and buy this book. It's fantastic and irreverent and laugh-out-loud funny.
