I have a little inner book snob that desperately wants to like Vonnegut In the very unlikely event that I should find myself at a convention of bookish intellectuals I feel like I'd fit right in if I sipped my champagne and said Oh yes indeed I simply adore what Vonnegut has to say about the absence of free willThis is the kind of bollocks that runs through my mind on a daily basis Unfortunately I just don't find him that funny most of the time Perhaps jokes about open beavers are funnier to readers who don't have vaginas who knows but it goes sailing right over my head Maybe this is why my invitation to the bookish intellectual convention seems to have got lost in the mail He also repeats the phrase which looked like this and follows it with a sketch of everything from a flamingo to a swastika to the aforementioned beaver in both senses of the word beaver Again is this funny Should I find it funnyThe funniest parts are his jokes about white people and the way in which they celebrate their discovery of America in 1492 despite the fact that others had actually been living on the continent for thousands of years But even that is a little overdone these days and haven't others done it better It sure feels like itThat being said I enjoyed Cat's Cradle Easily my favourite of his worksBlog | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Youtube | Store
