The Joker

Andrew Hudgins

Poet and OSU English professor Hudgins has always been one to go for the laugh. In the constantly moving world of the military brat, humor provided a way of winning friends in a new school. Interestingly, Hudgins began to realize that not all topics held the same humerous response. It depended on the circumstances when and where the jokes were told. There are some real groaners in here - of course, the jokes need to be in the memoir - and a few taboo subjects. Still the point of what adding humor to your day will accomplish is the real punch line.
