TOASTER'S HANDBOOK - Jokes, Stories, and Quotations (toasts for any occassion or announcement) By PEGGY EDMUND and HAROLD WORKMAN WILLIAMS
eBook (PDF): $2.95
From the PREFACE: "Nothing so frightens a man as the announcement that he is expected to respond to a toast on some appallingly nearby occasion. All ideas he may ever have had on the subject...

Let the frightened toaster turn first to the key word of his topic in this dictionary alphabet of selections and perchance he may find toast, story, definition or verse that may felicitously introduce his remarks. Then as he proceeds to outline his talk and to put it into sentences, he may find under one of the many subject headings a bit which will happily and scintillatingly drive home the ideas he is unfolding. While the larger part of the contents is humorous, there are inserted many quotations of a serious nature which may serve as appropriate literary ballast."< Less
