Oh that every waiting room, subway car, bus, or departure lounge would have a book like this available. A sweet confection of a book that is at once both funny and clever. There is a 2005 calendar made from this book too that I have spotted around the web; both make great gifts for anyone who appreciates the idiomatic richness of our language - and a good groanful pun.
Great fun with puns, March 21, 2004
Reviewer: Harold McFarland (Florida)
If you appreciate a good pun, then get ready to laugh. "Who You Callin' a Cheetah?" is a humorous collection of illustrated puns done somewhat in a style similar to Far Side. Some were so funny that I just had to share them right away, and others were only mildly humorous. Then when I shared the book with someone else they thought some of the other ones even more humorous. Well I guess that has always been the case with puns, everyone has their idea of what is funniest. It is a fairly short book and can be read through in about fifteen minutes or so at the most. I would say that it makes a nice short diversion on a busy day to pick it up and enjoy one or two of the puns except I found I couldn't put it down until I had read them all.

A great source of puns and groaners.
Michael Zittel and Lloyd Leifer have a winner in this book. If you don't like one illustrated pun, the next one will make you laugh. It reminds me a lot of Gary Larsen's Farside humor. It is well worth the $9.95 you pay. Put it on a coffee table or even next to the toilet for short-term diversion and laughter.
