The Totally Unauthorized Obamacare Joke Book™ is a collection of humor about Obamacare. The law. The website. President Obama and his administration. Republicans and Democrats. Senators and Representatives. Insurance companies. Consultants. Nobody gets a pass. Jokes, mock news stories, top ten lists, poems, groaners, songs and more. Some jokes are timely adaptations of old classic jokes but many are original and have never been published before; some of the items are actually true! Many items are laced with appearances by famous people and jokes about other current events further liven up the material.
We didn’t write the Obamacare law - don’t blame us!! On the other hand, love it or hate it, Obamacare is the law of the land and sometimes a little humor can make a point far better than a room full of politicians. And laughter, if not the best medicine, is certainly a good medicine. Take a look inside - we may not be able to make you forget all of the difficulties that Obamacare represents, but we may be able to convince you to at least smile at them a little.

The Totally Unauthorized Microsoft® Joke Book is a collection of humor about Microsoft. The company. The products. Windows. The company culture. Bill Gates, himself. Most of these have never been published before. There isnt even a single "How many programmers does it take to change a light bulb" joke in the whole collection. Even jokes you may have heard before or seen floating around on the Internet have, shall we say, some new twists and as you read youll notice that some other celebrities - both from inside and outside the personal computer business - make a few appearances.
We hope techies and non-techies (maybe even some at Microsoft!!) will enjoy the humor and view it not as mean spirited but rather in the true tradition of Jonathon Swift, Sinclair Lewis, National Lampoon and other purveyors of parody and satire, namely poking a little good natured fun at the rich and famous.
