The first SMIRK book was compiled through strategic literary litter lifting of pithy; witty phrases from the funnies, bumper stickers, writings of great authors and relaxed kitchen table conversations. That didn't stop editor Agnes Franz. She scooped out stuff from wider topics and listed quips, quotes and clich¿s by chapter headlings. This SMIRK Volume #2 is a tad more savvy. You'll find satire and cynicism more worldly-wise as well as comfy down home smiles here. We looked under the skin of wits and the wise. There are belly laughs along with gentle smiles here. Studies tell us that folks react favorably when humor smoothes life's abrasions. A smile may not prevent sore feet or wrinkles, but it won' trip you up with frown lines. SMIRK wants you to have fun.
