Good evening fellow readers! So of course I found a new challenge to participate in the hopes of proving myself better than the last. I picked up this challenge from The Chronicles of Radiya and very much look forward to 30 consecutive (hopefully, gulp) days of blogging.
Day 18: A Book That Made You Laugh
Yay, a question that doesn’t break my heart or is incredibly hard. A book that succeeded in making me laugh was The Help by Kathryn Stockett.
Unfortunately I can’t explain what made me laugh without a spoiling a certain moment in the book so: SPOILER ALERT, you’ve been warned.
I think if you’ve read the book you know exactly what part I’m talking about.
Throughout the book Minnie keeps referring to a horrible thing in which she did to her previous employer in which she will never talk about. Well, it becomes necessary to reveal her secret and her secret is this:
Minnie is famous for her chocolate pies. So after her employer unfairly fires her she returns with a chocolate pie to make ‘amends’. As her employer is eating the pie she is toying with Minnie about hiring her back. Minnie promptly announces “Eat my shit.” (Please excuse the language, this is what she says in the novel). It is then that we discover that Minnie has indeed put her ‘waste’ in the pie and allowed her owner to eat it.
When I read this part in the book I had to close it for a full five minutes because I couldn’t stop laughing. It makes it funnier too because the employer seriously had it coming, she was one evil lady. So to see her humiliated in such a way was a shining and hilarious moment.
What is a book that made you laugh? Share it below and happy reading!
