INTRODUCTION


What’s the difference between an engineering major, a finance major, and an English major?

An engineering major says: How can we build it?

A finance major says: What will it cost?

An English major says: Would you like fries with that?

I’ve spent the last thirty-nine years (B.A. in English, Sonoma State University, 1977) asking people Would you like fries with that?, raising a family, trying to eke out a living as a writer, waiting tables and living life. Years ago I started writing down jokes I heard, in the bars and restaurants I’ve worked, on napkins and beer mats. This book is the scum off the pond of my life as a waiter and bartender. It’s nasty, but never forget; scum is nasty, but also teeming with life and possibilities.

And remember, what Aristotle said, The gods, too, are fond of a joke.
