Oh, to have a first and last name that match! For Jerome K. Jerome, he was one of the lucky blokes. Perhaps that’s what gave him his first insight into humourous writing. Just look at this humdinger from his 1899 travel guide turned comedic account, Three Men in a Boat, which chronicles a two-week jaunt along the River Thames. Jerome and two of his chaps, “martyrs to hypochondria and general seediness,” are sure to have you Rolling On The River Thames Laughing with zingers like this one:

“It is not that I object to the work, mind you; I like work: it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours.”
