Plum Spooky

   By madwoman  Oct 23, 2011

Read this and tell me if it doesn't make you laugh. (For the record, I had tears in my eyes.)

"That's a mean thing to say. And it isn't even true. I'm just a big and beautiful woman. I got more of all the good stuff than most other women. And people who have heads like bowling balls should watch what they say about other people. You're lucky I'm not a vicious person, because if I was vicious, I'd call you Coconut Head. Or Gordo Gourdhead."

And then Lula bounced a grapefruit off Coconut Head's forehead. And Coconut Head tagged her with the apple he'd been holding. And what happened after that was a blur of flying fruit and eggs. I had my stun gun in my hand, but it was hard to get to Bollo and dodge the fruit at the same time. I finally managed to get the prongs on him, I hit the go button, and nothing happened. No juice.

Bollo shoved me away, and I lost my footing, sliding on fruit slime. I grabbed a fistful of his sihrt and took him down with me. I was hanging on to him, and he was trying to get away, and Lula fired off a shot to the ceiling.

"Next bullet's gonna be up your butt," Lula said to Bollo.

Bollo paused to consider that, and a rat dropped from an overhead rafter and landed inches from Lula in her red patent-leather stilettos.

This is an exerpt from Janet Evanovich's Plum Spooky that I got at the Dollar Tree and it's an autographed copy.

I laughed so hard reading that part that when the doctor came in, I had tears in my eyes.

What do you think?  Think this is funny?  Are you a Janet Evanovich fan?  Let me know.

I love Janet Evanovich's work. I have read all the Stephanie Plum series and few of her other book. Grandma Mazur is my absolute favorite character from any book I've ever read. I'm so jealous you have a signed copy!
