Humor, Humor, Everywhere

If asked, R. Scott Murphy would describe his collection titled Fun Stories Greatest Hits as fitting in the following genres: Humor and Entertainment, Parenting and Family Humor, Happiness, Romantic Comedy, Feel Good Essays, Parodies, and Word Play & Satire. The description covers a lot of territories, but Murphy uses forty stories to do it. The humor is self-deprecating, but also inclusive as Murphy posits the existence of communities such as Fun Stories Nation and MentalKickBall which include the readers and the author as the combination attempts to make sense of the ridiculousness we see around us every day.
