Masterfully crafted by Poppa Talbert, ‘Silly, yes, but you smiled!’ is a far-fetched, plain-rowdy yet always-hilarious new book that will provide uplifting bursts of entertainment when sitting on the toilet or waiting at the bus stop. Turning the world, its cultures and its people upside down, Talbert cuts through seriousness to provide readers with snappy one-liners designed to bring a smile to their face. Having spent decades working in the radio industry, Talbert was famous for his ability to make audiences laugh (and cringe) with his unique brand of humor, now being compiled into a single volume. Oh yes, by the way – did you know that chicken is the most frequently shoplifted pot pie?!



Franklin, NH – There’s no way to sugarcoat it; we live in a society too darn focused on the serious and the mundane. In fact, some social commentators have gone as far as to say that the modern busy human has lost their sense of humor altogether. Take a deep breath and prepare to welcome Poppa Talbert into your life – a man who lives for the nonsensical, the quirky and the plan absurd.



But it’s all for good reason, Talbert’s strange brand of humor produces endless one-liners that span politics, history, celebrities and just about everything in between. From phrases such as “Just like his dogs, President Nixon used to romp and play on the White House lawn and occasionally take a dump” to “Nobody named Biff or Spike has ever won the Nobel Peace Prize”, Talbert knows how to rekindle that simple pleasure of putting a smile on someone’s face.



In ‘Silly, yes, but you smiled’, hundreds of one-liners come together to form an encyclopedia of the lighter side of life.




The world turned upside down and inside out with no regard to the sanctity of history, people, places and things! Life should be this ridiculous so we can all just scratch our heads and smile!

“I’ll admit, my book isn’t out there to make life-changing revelations or make literary history, but to instead bring a smile and a laugh to people at the times they need it the most,” explains Talbert. “I used to be a record promoter and later graduated to dee-jaying for a local radio station. That was when I’d produce endless one-liners that my audiences lapped up when we were coming out of the news or out of an appropriate song. In this day and age when people are pre-occupied and forced to take life seriously, I decided it was time to dust them off and release them to the world.”



Continuing, “Expect the unexpected – turning politicians, places, celebrities and just about every other thread of life’s fabric inside out, upside down and then wringing the juice out of it until readers’ sides have split. It’s all about good clean fun that grounds readers and urges them not to take life so seriously…even if it’s only during that three-minutes daily you can steal away to take a dump…!”



With the volume’s demand expected to increase, interested readers are urged to secure their copies as soon as possible.
