West Palm Beach, FL (PRWEB) October 18, 2011
For 30 years humor columnist Ron Wiggins has been extolling Iowans in the only way it can be done without them running blushing from the room: by making a joke of their natural born, corn-fed adorability. When Iowans 1,700 miles from Florida got wind of Wiggins tom-foolery, they begged for more.
Now Wiggins has published a joke collection - Iowa Nice: Genial Jokes for a Gentle People (Honorbright Books, 102 pages, $10), distributed by Ingram Books and Baker & Taylor. To order visit http://www.iowanice.com or buy the $3 Kindle edition through Amazon.
