After four years away from the spotlight, Jack Handey is back, and for the first time ever, he has formed his “Deep Thoughts” into enough sentences and paragraphs of a running fictional narrative to complete a novel. Jack Handey’s “The Stench of Honolulu” comes out in book form on July 16, 2013.

You can enjoy Jack Handey the way you remember enjoying Jack Handey’s “Deep Thoughts” on Saturday Night Live throughout the 1990s — in short videos narrated by Handey — thanks to Funny or Die.
