Blanche Knott is the author of the best-selling Truly Tasteless Jokes series. She was the first person to have four books on the New York Times bestseller list at once, which upset a lot of people in publishing. Blanche lives in Brooklyn, New York, and is still not embarrassed. If she has a tombstone, it’s going to say I Was A Clue on “Jeopardy.”

Disgusting, abhorrent, and just plain terrible. But people love them. Tackling every taboo subject, this truly tasteless little book proves that there's nothing too sacred to be laughed at. After all, it was a #1 bestseller.
One book wasn't enough. Demand was too great. The truly tasteless among us insisted on more outrageous insults, crude wit, and disgusting observations. Once again, no group is spared and nothing is too sacred to be ridiculed.
