My Funny Valentine
By: Linton Robinson and Karla Telega
ISBN: 978-1-936955-01-6, Pages 188, $9.95, Publication Date: December, 2011, Trade Paperback, Published by Bauu Press
Valentine’s Day is nearly upon us so that all those lovers out there better get hopping to find that perfect gift for their significant other. Linton Robinson and Karla Telega have compiled a hilarious collection of anecdotes, short stories, and other catchy trivia in “My Funny Valentine.”
Some great old one-liners that have survived through time:
“What the world really needs is more love and less paperwork”…Pearl Bailey
“Love is what you’ve been through with somebody.”…James Thurber
“Love is an electric blanket with somebody else in control of the switch.”…Cathy Carlyle
A collection of short stories normally would not be that entertaining, but what these editors found was a collective theme of funny humor, which partners can read to each other and enjoy a rib-tickling guffaw. Some are corny as all get out, but as you page through and find others, you ignore the shortcomings.
A review that ignores these two love poems would be incomplete. After reading them to my wife, we both had a hearty laugh!
A poem by woman
Before I lay me down to sleep,
I pray for a man, who’s not a creep,
One who’s handsome, smart and strong,
One who loves to listen long,
One who thinks before he speaks,
One who’ll call not wait for weeks,
I pray he’s gainfully employed,
When I spend his cash, won’t be annoyed,
Pulls out my chair and opens my door,
Massages my back and begs to do more,
Oh! Send me a man who’ll make love to my mind,
Knows what to answer to ‘how big is my behind?’
I pray that this man will love me to no end,
And always be my very best friend.
A poem by man
I pray for a deaf-mute gymnast nymphomaniac with huge boobs
who owns a bar on a golf course, and loves to send me fishing and
drinking. This doesn’t rhyme and I don’t give a d---.
