Dirty Jokes and Beer, by Drew Carey

Dirty Jokes and Beer: Stories of the Unrefined, by Drew Carey

A good friend recommended this to me a year or two ago, but I just now got around to reading it. While it isn’t exactly The Divine Comedy, it is pretty damn funny. Each chapter opens with a joke, most of which I can’t tell my kids but still made me laugh out loud. The book is divided into three broad sections: one semi-biographical, one about The Drew Carey Show, and one containing loosely connected short stories. A few random entries as well; one entire chapter deals with big dick jokes (“My dick is so big, it lives next door.” “My dick is so big, it has cable.” “My dick is so big, Las Vegas casinos fly it into town for free.”) that I’ve have killed to have in my repertoire when I was in fifth grade. Good stuff! The humor is coarse and it is clear Carey didn’t use a ghostwriter, but I still enjoyed this. If you are looking for a fast read and a smile, give this a try!

First Sentence:
A woman is at a bar, drinking and depressed.
