Product Overview

The author of the wildly successful "Portable Curmudgeon" and "Portable Curmudgeon Redux" outdoes himself in the biggest collection yet of acid wit and wisdom cunningly collected from sardonic savants of every stripe.
Acurmudgeon is defined as 1. A crusty, ill-tempered, churlish old man; 2. Anyone who hates hypocrisy and pretense and has the temerity to say so; or 3. anyone who points out unpleasant facts in an engaging and humorous manner. "The Big Curmudgeon" is the richest collection yet of curmudgeonly commentary, combining all of the material from the bestselling "Portable Curmudgeon" and "Portable Curmudgeon Redux," plus selections from "A Curmudgeon’ s Garden of Love"— and lots of brand-new quips, quotations, and wisdom freshly collected by compiler extraordinaire, Jon Winokur.
Arranged alphabetically by subject and featuring special sections on such world-class grumps as Bill Maher, H.L. Mencken, John Simon, W.C. Fields, and Dorothy Parker, the book is the last witty word on all things cynical, snide, and hilariously grouchy.
Equally suited to the " humor" and " reference" sections, "The Big Curmudgeon" is filled with the pithiest, smartest things ever said by the wittiest people who ever lived.
