AIN'T HE SOME FUNNY! The Best of John McDonald

by | Read by John McDonald

Humor • 1.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

John McDonald tells droll stories in the authentic voice of a Mainer. Maine's a tad slower than other places, he observes, and our humor is unhurried too--don't expect any New York one-liners here. With unhurried pacing, McDonald "remodels and reconditions" stories you've heard and many you haven't while shedding light on the tourist-Mainer relationship, giving directions, teaching useful Maine words and phrases ("cahn't miss it" equals "you'll nevuh find it"), and instructing on how to distinguish a Mainer from a Flatlander (only one pronounces "ayuh" properly). Some stories are funnier than others, but McDonald allows listeners their own reactions. If the story makes you laugh, fine, but "you won't offend anyone if you just sit there . . . noddin' ya head and waitin' for the next story."
