The collected jokes of Slavoj Žižek by the artist Audun Mortensen. They actually have this book in my local Blackwell, but at the eye watering price of £20 a copy. Anyway here is one of my favourite Zizekian jokes - A guy was sent from East Germany to work in Siberia. He knew his mail would be read by censors, so he told his friends: “Let’s establish a code. If a letter you get from me is written in blue ink, it is true what I say. If it is written in red ink, it is false.” After a month, his friends get the first letter. Everything is in blue. It says, this letter: “Everything is wonderful here. Stores are full of good food. Movie theaters show good films from the west. Apartments are large and luxurious. The only thing you cannot buy is red ink.”
