Curmudgeon's Bible

by CrocDayv on Jun 5, 2014

This, with Jon Winokur's sequels, make up, what I refer to as, The Curmudgeon's Bible! They are chock full of heartening quips and passages that make you proud to be a curmudgeon. I'm never at a loss for something to pick me up with this set close at hand.
