Jeff Charleboisabout this book: As a seasoned comedian for close to twenty-five years I tend to pull the absurdity out of daily encounters. I began writing for Ability Magazine twenty years ago as the humor columnist. My jokes were incorporated into my articles. My "silly" columns ranged from pets, global warming, social media, doctor visits to chats with God. I was given carte blanche to write about anything, but the caveat was, it had to be funny. I believe I've touched on every subject out there because I now find it takes longer to think of an idea for an article that I haven't written about than to write the damn column. With a compilation of my humorous works I decided to make them into a book. After reading it I think you'll agree that Life Is A Funny Thing. For some odd reason I feel my life's mission is too find the absurdity in the world. Well, it's something to do. So, I hope you enjoy my journey from the stage to the page.
Kids: “More and more children are waddling into their pediatrician’s offices, and it’s not just for Ritalin anymore. Some are going for the liposuction. We need a gigantic American intervention to get kids off junk food, otherwise I think Gen X’s children will come to be known as The Diabetic Generation.”
Pets: “Pets can have annoying habits. A cat, for instance, will suddenly decide she desperately needs to be in the next room. There was no AMBER Alert or tornado warning coming across the TV, but at this time in her life, she has to be in the next room. Five minutes later into her life, she desperately needs to come back and sit directly on top of the newspaper you’re reading.”
Reality TV: “Why do they even call it reality TV? For most of us, reality is working a 9-to-5 job, shuttling the kids to soccer practice, waiting for the cable guy and paying bills. It certainly isn’t swapping your wife, cha-cha-ing with the stars or being a wealthy, good-looking bachelor and having to choose which one of the forty money-grubbing girls you’re going to sleep with. That only happens when you're asleep.
