Leacock Medal for Humor 2014

Humour-seekers may be interested in following up the nominees for the Stephen Leacock Memorial Medal, awarded annually for the most humorous book of the year by a Canadian (details at leacock.ca).   They are:  Arthur Black, Jane Christmas, Bill Conall, Wayne Johnston and Steve Smith.  The Camino being the hot topic it is,  Jane Christmas may be familiar from a previous book  What the Psychic Told the Pilgrim: A Mid-Life Misadventure on Spain’s Camino de Santiago de Compostela (2007).

Let’s hope they’re even half as funny as the great Leacock. Does anyone read him any more?

  1. I have a problem with the Gertloveday blog . I can just never be sure that I am not being taken for an enormous ride . Please confirm it is all true !
    Really Gert “Finnegans Wake in Mandarin ” , I could easily suspect you actually fantasise doing this yourself.
    What about Flann ? Really ? I believe you but only because my brother and myself spent our late teens carrying on about DeSelbys theories and about the transfer of mollycules between man and bike . We liked to spend time after Mass in the village seeing which men seemed to have a desperate need to prop against the church wall .
    Now today we have theLovecock Medal for Humor. How fabulos . Hopefully there is a book called ‘ What the Psychic told the Pilgrim’ . I mean you could be ridiculing poor dear Shirley MacLaine’s autobiography about her psychic inspired Camino Journey .
    Please ,please keep it coming Gert. I see my education about to take a leap . So much fun .

    1. We can assure you Mary every word you read on this blog is utterly true. Unless of course it’s one of our stories, but these can also be most instructive. Keep reading and you may learn a lot.
