    I couldn't get much.  Jeeves by Wodehouse, Three men in a boat, hitchhiker's guide to galaxy are a few. What do you think?

    I think the funniest things I have read are often people with really messed up lives who decide to write about it. Augusten Burroughs and David Sedaris come to mind though there are certainly others. If nothing else you'll learn that 1) your life isn't so bad and 2) its much better to laugh than cry.
