"The building was on fire, and it wasn't my fault." -Blood Rites, by Jim Butcher.

It's a hilarious line, one that pulls you in immediately. And it's even funnier when you know the main characters history. (Things tend to end up burning around him.) Really, what's not to love about that line? (The same book also has one of the funniest closing lines I've come across- "Why did you get large breed Puppy Chow?")

Nice. I love Jim Butcher's books. The Harry Dresden books are so funny and his fantasy is is just epic. When it comes to laughs though, I've never laughed harder then the scene with the frozen turkey.

Oh, god. Can't forget the frozen turkey scene. XD And everyone just stopping the fight for a moment to stare. "For my next trick- anvils." I think I hurt myself laughing the first time I read that part.

I seem to recall having to put the book down to wipe the tears from my eyes. Not long after that I found myself in a conversation with someone in a bookstore about that scene. He and I were cracking up and his girlfriend was left standing there staring at us like we were crazy.
