Ha Ha High Marks for Cohea’s Nutty Humor

Humor columnist Barbara Cohea‘s first novel Intelligent Life on Earth? The Search Continues gets high marks from Readers’ Favorite.  Not just a five-star review, but a review loaded with all kinds of applause for her witty work.  We (thewordverve) are proud to have worked with Barbara on this book, with editing, design, and publishing.  She’s a winner, and we’re madly applauding too!!

It’s a great book to take along with you for bits and pieces throughout your day–a collection of some of her favorite columns for Outreach NC.

“Intelligent Life on Earth? The Search Continues by Barbara Cohea is FUNNY! This entire book is a collection of short essays about… well, about almost everything. All the way through this book, I kept thinking, “This woman should be a newspaper columnist.” After the conclusion of the book, I was delighted to see that she is, indeed, a humor columnist for a magazine called Outreach NC. However, that’s not good enough. She should be a nationally syndicated columnist, appearing in newspapers all across the country. Her astute powers of observation, particularly where the absurd is concerned, should be designated a national treasure. She has a sense of humor that would make a lemon laugh. Even my wife thought she was funny, and that’s saying something. 

“Intelligent Life on Earth shines a light on such globally significant concerns as putting a life vest on a cat, or tasing a rampaging camel. She covers in detail an incident where a swan was used as a weapon of assault, and another case where a fox shoots a hunter. And that was just in the first few pages! There are many important topics discussed in this book: milking a mouse; giving giant chocolate Madagascar hissing cockroaches to your Valentine; how to keep your baggy pants from falling off, even when the crotch is down below your knees; and the sheer stupidity of the multi-layered ‘security’ questions you have to answer just to tell the phone company they overcharged you. Good luck with that one, by the way. “

I have an assignment for you, America. Buy this book; remember, it’s called Intelligent Life on Earth? The Search Continues. Read it. Then contact your local newspaper and convince the editor he/she needs to start carrying Barbara Cohea’s humor column. Let him read your copy of the book, if necessary, but I think we all need a daily dose of this kind of humor. With all due respect to her state, Barbara Cohea’s talent should not be kept solely in North Carolina.

So, whaddya think?
