It's my grandmother's birthday next week, and I'd like to give her some sort of book with cute and funny short stories/jokes, a la Reader's Digest
. It should also be clean humor only
. Any suggestions?

A little more info:
- My grandmother is a fundie. She will not read or listen to anything remotely "sinful," which really narrows it down (from my perspective), considering how much she considers sinful. For instance, I'm pretty sure the word "butt" would offend her (yes, it's that bad), but if she can quickly turn the page on that sort of thing, maybe it'll be okay.
- Caveat: Please only suggest books that aren't religious/spiritual in nature. As the black sheep agnostic of the family, I seriously do not want to encourage that monster, no matter how much she'd like something with a Jesus-loving bent.
- Upbeat material only. My grandfather passed away a couple of years ago, and she's had friends pass recently; I think she's (understandably) a little depressed, but she won't see to it because of her beliefs. I want something that will make her laugh and not have to think too much.
Thank you, hive mind!
