Road Trip Wednesday #165: Laugh Factory

Welcome to our 165th Road Trip Wednesday!

Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, you can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.

We'd love for you to participate! Just answer the prompt on your own blog and leave a link - or, if you prefer, you can include your answer in the comments.

This Week's Topic is: Good for a laugh: who is your favorite comedian or funny book and/or movie?

Road Trip Song of the Week: "Don't Worry Be Happy" by Bobby McFerrin

Next week, In celebration of the release of Kristin Halbrook's NOBODY BUT US (hooray!!) we're asking: Zoe and Will set off on the road to seek a better life and encounter loads of drama on the way. What's the most dramatic road trip you've ever been on?

  2. Here's mine!

  4. Here's mine

  5. I couldn't narrow my pick down to one, so here are three great, funny books.

  6. Here's mine:

  7. Here's mine. I couldn't think of any funny books, my mind went blank. I've got enough comedians for a 5-a-side football team though!

  8. This one was harder than I many to choose from!

  9. Here is my response!

  10. Books and Movies (2 of each), but no comedians. I couldn't think of any favorites.

    1. This one WAS tough! Glad to see you blogging!!

  12. Here's mine:

  13. When I was ten or so, I thought Skinnybones by Barbara Park was the funniest book ever. (I later discovered a newer edition with oversensitive revisions that made the book much less funny.)

    When I was 15, I thought Youth in Revolt was the funniest book ever.

    When I was 17, I thought Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman! was the funniest book ever.

    It's a moving target, is what I'm saying.
