Cheesiest spin off book: Barnabas Collins In a Funny Vein

I have seen some pretty bad novelisations of vampire TV shows, but this is surely a new low. In a transparent effort to cash in on the then newly popular Dark Shadows series, this book of jokes was released. This 1969 paperback is appalling, and not in the good way.

Here we have a random page of the so called jokes, also displaying the haphazard formatting in a large point courier font, with no page numbers. To quote the back cover text: "groovy".

Growing up I was a die-hard fan of Dark Shadows. At the time, it was very cutting edge - you had to live the era to understand. So I also find this cheesy to the extreme.

Just from what I can see, that is awful, bloody awful.
