The Penguin Book of Jokes from the Net


Formats & editions


WHEN the printing press was invented, it promised literature. People read comics.WHEN cinema was invented, it promised culture for the masses. We got Austin Powers.WHEN TV was invented, it promised education. We got Sex and the City.The internet promised unprecedented access to information across the globe and an end to national barriers. What we got was 30 million netheads – nerds, rock stars and your average punters – swapping politically incorrect jokes. Hundreds of which, we're unashamed to say, are contained within these pages.

About the Author

Phillip Adams

It's nudging sixty years since Phillip Adams' by-line first appeared in an Australian newspaper. As an atheist and contrarian, he's been annoying people ever since. Gough Whitlam calls him 'Australia's most perceptive social critic'. Robert Manne says he's 'perhaps the most remarkable broadcaster in this country's history'. As well as lots of books and TV series, Adams' dozen feature films include The Adventures of Barry McKenzie and Don's Party. He has chaired many government bodies, won lots of awards, attracted many enemies and remains hyperactive.
