Valentine’s Day gets treated by some of the funniest writers in America: the people who win the humor contests, write syndicated columns, appear on comedy states, create the jokes you hear on TV. A fun read, and an open invitation to laugh at the joke that makes the world go around.

Some samples:
I don’t need a special day to be awkward, uncomfortable and falsely selfless. That’s what dating was for. Blythe Jewell

This is not to imply that the only men who remember Valentine’s Day are philanderers. Some of them, for example, are only thinking about cheating. Greg Podolski

We lovingly refer to it as Valentine’s Day because “Sex for Chocolate Day” was vetoed by the greeting card industry. Leigh Anne Jasheway

Valentine’s Day is about those five little words: Charge it to my Visa. Jim Shea

Inappropriate Valentine’s Day Gifts include: Tickets to a ball game, box of chocolates left over from Christmas, vacuum cleaner, herpes. Jonathan Shipley

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

As odd as it may sound, this book truly has it all. There are poems, stories, personal accounts, rejected Valentine card lines, romance mathematics, Holiday factoids, etc… The reader will not be able to find a boring portion in the entire book. The readers’ attention will not waver from this book. My Funny Valentine is short enough that a reader will finish the book in a day or two at most. Some readers may even recognize the writers of this hysterical book, a few male readers may even find some gift ideas for Valentine’s Day!


Looking for the perfect book come Valentine’s Day? Maybe looking for new material to use in cards or for your loved one? This book is perfect for anyone looking for a laugh or seriously trying to find phrases and/or poems and/or stories. The quotes a reader will discover in this short book will have a humorous effect and the stories are so funny the reader will likely laugh out loud.


I just kept reading one, laughing, and saying, “Why haven’t I heard of this writer before?” Not only is the writing quality very high (Barry Parham, Barb Best, Ernie Witham, John Boston, Kate Heidel and a couple of others should be as published and known as Dave Barry or David Sedaris, no doubt about it) but it is so varied. There are a lot of “alternative” ways to look on “Love Day” and there are a lot of them in this book.

About The Author

Everybody loves a good laugh… they’re just hard to find sometimes. That’s where Funny Books come in, with anthologies that bring you the cream of a vast untapped American resource: humor writers you might not have heard of because they work in other regions or in media you don’t access. Funny Books’ contributors are syndicated columnists, TV and comedy writers, winners of the top humor awards. Coming together in special collections that poke a funny bone in the ribs of topics, issues and cultural icons you might not have thought of as humorous before reading these assortments of chortlemongers and guffaw greats.

Our first book is dedicated to a St. Valentines Day: a holiday that draws a lot of attention (not to mention breathless anticipation, romantic fantasies, buyer panic, and institutional disappointment) but is seldom just made a laughing stock. The pieces in My Funny Valentine might be warm fuzzies, or cynical snaps, historical enlightenment, or satiric spinouts, or behavioral field notes of Love in our times, but they have one thing in common: they’ll make you laugh. This is one anthology that goes beyond “bathroom reading”: it doesn’t shy from being wrapped in lace, flowers and murmurs to give to loved ones. It’s not a box of chocolates: but it’ll last longer.

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – MyFunnyBooks Writers and ENT appreciate it.

It’s a killer book with a genius selection of work. Speaking as one of the editors, that is. Speaking as a reader, I gotta say, these are some really funny writers. Speaking as a guy whose girlfriend will probably not even appreciate it as a gift because she’s marginally literate, I say, this and some chocolate might do the trick.

It would be so much easier to type my comment if I wasn’t laughing hysterically. This is a very funny book!
