    The promise of God's love and comfort. An entire chapter is devoted to each of six major jokes, tracing its history and variants, and looking closely at the ways in which the comic behavior enacted in the punch-line can be interpreted.

    TV is good, but never great, without tea. We organize our shelves based upon topic, rather than genre. An additional chapter is devoted to the ways in which Jewish jokes tend to evolve. But my filthy secret would march with me, craving the hot teat of a teapot, the steaming mug of tasteless nectar that even now, with a supersized SportsDirect only recently in me, I yearn for.

    Raskin merges an understanding of Jewish culture, fresh psychological insights, and a sophisticated reading of jokes and their evolution to create a gem of a book. No earlier study has dealt with these jokes in a developmental perspective, showing the pathways through which anti-Semitic anecdotes are sometimes transformed into authentic Jewish jokes, as well as the processes Jewish jokes undergo over the decades as their comic potential is unfolded in successive stages, and when they are transplanted from European to American soil. After reading it, you won't laugh the same way again. Now in its Second Edition, this expanded version adds two new chapters and new introductory material. I went to the tea gardens there and had an incredible experience. We have to drink it.
