Collectors need a sense of humor to survive the odd collecting habits of friends, unexpected events at a show, broken bottles in a dig, “repurposing” and new styles like ‘shabby chic’ wanted by younger collectors and the corny jokes exchanged whenever collectors discuss collecting. John Stinger has been creating “Funny Cartoons for Serious Collectors” since 1973. He published his first book in 1992 and another in 2016. Only other collectors understand the humor. Bet you laughed at this very timely joke he said we could print, but don’t try to explain it to your non-collector friends. For more laughs, you can buy Stinger’s latest book, “The Lighter Side of Collecting,” by calling him at 908-319-8957 or by emailing him at Only $15.95 plus shipping.
