The Big Book of Irony

August 6, 2009

I was recently browsing the discount tables at Chapters (I’m addicted to $4.95 hardcover books) and came across a little book titled The Big Book of Irony by Jon Winokur (Canadian cover price of $24.95. How can you resist?)

A book on irony seemed too good to pass up so I dropped my money on the counter and headed home with my new reading material.

Inside I found this wonderful little poem by Samuel Hoffenstein.

Your little hands
Your little feet
Your little mouth -
Oh, God, how sweet!
Your little nose
Your little ears
Your eyes, that shed
Such little tears!
Your little voice
So soft and kind
Your little soul
Your little mind!

Worth the $4.95 right there.
