Whenever I hear someone waxing nostalgic for a simpler time when the humour was pure and clean; and complaining about how crass comedians are today and how the young have no work ethic and everything is just going to hell in a handcart, I am going to point them to this book. Because it wasn’t like that back then. People may think it’s bad now, but judging from the tales told here it was much worse then. At least one member of the staff showed up drunk every single day. The practical jokes that were looked on as a matter of course would get people fired if they were attempted at any business I’ve ever worked in. NO ONE I KNOW BEHAVES ANYTHING LIKE THIS. Stop complaining about how much worse things have gotten. When you start feeling like that, read this book. You’ll feel much better.
