Inhaltsangabe: Plain Funny Too, like the other 6 books currently forming part of the Take Me To The Toilet Series, is a collection of jokes, tales and anecdotes gathered from friends around the world and matched to illustrations in the same vein as the text. The humour found in Plain Funny is suitable for anyone from teenagers to the elderly and ranges from pure fiction to borderline fact. No nationality, group, gender or profession is excluded when an opportunity to poke fun at its members is presented. If you don't have a sense of humour you should not read this book. The jokes, etc., are gathered loosely under subject headings so that it is easy to select a joke for a particular occasion. All the books in the series are designed for easy reading in cramped spaces on trains, planes and buses not to mention that most private of places where you may find the time to enjoy a good joke! All the jokes, tales and anecdotes found in the Plain Funny have been carefully selected for their funniness and are devoid of material of a salacious or gratuitous nature. I hope you have as much fun reading this book as I have had compiling it. When you have finished it pass it on to someone who may need cheering up or keep it and add other books to form a unique collection.
Über den Autor: Chris Bruce was born in England and educated in England, South West Africa (now Namibia) and South Africa. After a long career in the construction industry in South Africa, Namibia, Hong Kong and the Philippines, interspersed with an interest in a photographic safari business, a share in a small factory manufacturing wooden briefcases and having established two restaurants in Hong Kong, Chris moved to Thailand in 2000. There he built and equipped a sausage factory in Bangkok which was operated by his wife. Not being Thai, unable to speak the language, no longer a part of the construction "EXPAT NETWORK" due to the slump in the Asian construction industry and with no restaurants to manage, it was not long before he became somewhat bored with life. One way to alleviate the boredom was to write. Chris decided to use his knowledge of the sausage industry to write a book of sausage recipes. This was followed by a book of recipes for preparing meals using sausage and a book of liqueur making methods and recipes. After completing the three recipe books he encouraged friends from around the world to send him jokes and cartoons by email. This series of TAKE ME TO THE TOILET BOOKS (VOLS I to VII) is the result of the huge response he got. Chris makes no claim to have dreamt up the jokes, anecdotes and other amusing facts or stories featured in these volumes and in fact it is impossible, with very few exceptions, to say where the jokes originated. Two Thai cartoonists Kitti Meeboonnum and Wirat Sukcharoen provided the illustrations. One thing Chris did realize was that people do not have much time to read a little humour and the "Thunderbox", as it used to be called, is the ideal place to do so. The internet, the source of much modern humor, is not normally accessible during visits to this most private of places and it is hoped that these "TOILET COMPANIONS" will add amusement to the otherwise idle moments spent in the "BOX". In 2005 Chris returned to the construction industry, first in Oman where he worked on residential/commercial buildings, Ministry of Defence contracts, the new Musanah Air Base and the implementation of ISO9000 Quality Standards for the MOD. This was followed by a move to Dubai where, after four years of a roller coaster ride through the construction boom, Chris hopes to end his construction career as he turns 70 to allow him to complete an autobiography describing his somewhat unusual life.
