Wednesday 22 December 2010, author(s)-editor(s) Linus Asong

Laughing Store is just what we need in times of troubles and uncertainties such as these. A book of humour from an acclaimed master of laughter, it lifts our hearts and raises our spirits. Jokes that touch about every domain of existence - from sex to religion, from births to deaths, from politics to the beer parlour, from the courtroom to the hospital. And most important of all, conceived in the supremely original Cameroonian flavour of jokes.

    We find here for the very first time in Cameroon literary history, in a rather distilled form, that extremely rare mental faculty of discovering, expressing or appreciating ludicrous or absurdly incongruous elements in ideas, situations, happenings or acts which John Webster and other lexicographers term humour.
