If Mama Don't Laugh, It Ain't Funny, the debut book from syndicated humor columnist Lucy Adams, sits on par with the work of the late Erma Bombeck. In, If Mama Don't Laugh, Adams produces what critics are calling her best work yet, voicing the frustrations and successes of average families everywhere. From using cats to hunt down AWOL hermit crabs, to euthanizing pet watermelons, to sharing a meal of prescription strength crow, you'll tag along on the adventures of the Adams family through awkward family rituals, uncomfortable questions, and the perpetual mysteries of children. You'll laugh until stuff comes out of your nose as Adams humorously dissects and revels in the absurdity and chaos of modern family life. And so will your mama.
