A Dragon Walks Into a Bar by Jef Aldrich & Jon Taylor - OPTIONAL

A Dragon Walks Into a Bar by Jef Aldrich & Jon Taylor, 205 pages, JOKE BOOK, Aadams Media (Simon & Schuster), 2019, $15.

Language: PG (3 swears); Mature Content PG-13; Violence: G



This joke book is for RPG (Role Playing Game) players.  Otherwise you might not be into jokes like, “Why did the barbarian add a story to his house?  He wanted to gain a level.”  You can roll your d6 to generate an orc tribe name, or a 1d8 to fill in the blanks for a Tragic Backstory.  According to the book, there is a grand total of 335 jokes, 17 tables, and 117 sidebars containing snide commentary and further information about the jokes.

The jokes are pretty funny but are targeted to a specific audience.  There are several with sexual connotations, so bear that in mind, though for a joke book, they showed a lot of restraint.  If your idea of a good time is to roll dice and fight dwarves, then this is truly your book, because “the best selling book in the forest is an elf-help book.”
