GT – AISHA TYLER MADE ME LAUGH

I found this book in a weekly book ‘ukay’ sale at a local mall here, it’s SWERVE: Reckless Observations of a Postmodern Girl, I knew the author as a TV host and a comedienne, so when I spotted this being thrown in and out of the heap, I dusted it off and paid P35 at the counter.

Aisha Tyler did not disappoint me, it’s not actually a full story book with a Tom and Jerry character book, it’s a collection of hilariously-written pop culture essays per her observations around her, especially on stuffs relating to women, sex, marriage and love.

I love it how she compared women’s everyday life battle with the wits of the ever famous, ancient war legend Sun Tzu. Her naughty, funny thoughts about the socio-political implications of bikini waxing, reality TV, her views on the Boys Scout motto: Be prepared and etc… it’s really funny, I bet yah, you will really be laughing in front a stranger… promise!

This book is brilliantly funny! I swear!

you found a treasure for only P35. i think what made it funnier is it is a compilation of her observations and not a novel.

my entry is here, sis. have a nice day!

I am not familiar with Aisha Tyler or her book, hee hee. It's interesting that it isn't a biography or a novel but a collection of her thoughts. Kind of like a blog, maybe? Thanks for sharing! :)

Some good point written.

In February, for example, Imperial College London and bioceramic drug polymer biodegradable plastic from sugar derived from the decay of lignocellulosic biomass. There is also an existing plant more corn starch and plastics based on paper, including household goods and food packaging, bioplastics toys, plastic dynamic Cereplast.
