Books that made you laugh

Titus Andronicus, mostly because it had the first your mom joke. The rest of it is horribly bloody so it isn't for the queasy.

We did Titus Andronicus in high school -- my English teacher got very upset because we insisted on shortening the title to Titus Anus.
It could be worse

It's been a long time, but I remember Mark Twain's autobiography making me laugh.

And, of course, any compilation of Oscar Wilde's greatest hits, such as...

Always! That is a dreadful word. It makes me shudder when I hear it. Women are so fond of using it. They spoil every romance by trying to make it last forever. It is a meaningless word, too. The only difference between a caprice and a life-long passion is that the caprice lasts a little longer.

PS> Yes, "Confederacy of Dunces" and "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" did make me laugh out loud reading them. And, strangely enough, Jane Austen was deceptively funny, especially her novel "Emma". That woman could make me laugh, even though I was reading her a few hundred years past tense.
You can't hate me more than I hate myself.  I win.

"When the spirit of justice eloped on the wings
Of a quivering vibrato's bittersweet sting."
