Sometimes it takes a mature mind to really appreciate the most classic of jokes. Wrinklies Classic Joke Book is the joke book for those who look back wistfully at the real golden age of comedy. Packed full of jokes, stories, proverbs and funny observations all relating to the elder generation, this is not a book that mocks the old - it is a joke book specifically designed for oldies, so look out you little pipsqueaks - you probably won't understand half of them!
