Jennifer Love Hewitt has written a book: a joke needing no punch line

Did you hear the latest knee-slapper making its way through the Internet? "So it appears actress Jennifer Love Hewitt wrote a book …"

That's it. No punch line needed, we guess.

The title is The Day I Shot Cupid: Hello, My Name Is Jennifer Love Hewitt, And I'm A Love-aholic.

"Yes, this means that her name is on the cover of the book twice," NPR dutifully reports.

The tome, penned by the actress who broke into fame on TV's Party of Five and now plays The Ghost Whisperer, promises very serious advice for females about achieving happiness with the opposite sex. Never mind that Hewitt has famously been in so many failed relationships that even rejection hall-of-fame inductee Jennifer Aniston should say, "Whoa, babe! How about you take a breather?"

"How can a celebrity possibly offer the masses dating advice?" the Huffington Post writes. "They are the worst at meeting people. That's why they always seem to date their dysfunctional co-stars."

Here's a little more "she says/they say" action for the masses.

Jen writes: "This is embarrassing and personal, but once a month, since I was 12 years old, I go to my favorite jewelry store and try on my dream ring."

NPR writes: "She is 31 years old. If this is true, she has made roughly 225 trips to the jewelry store to try on engagement rings."

Jen writes: "Remember: Cleavage isn't cheap, it's gorgeous! Show it off!"

Entertainment Weekly writes: "Do we really want love advice from a woman who's dated Joey Lawrence, Carson Daly, John Mayer, and now her Ghost Whisperer co-star Jamie Kennedy?"

Jen writes: "Don't take a diuretic before a date; you will pee all night long!"

The Baltimore Sun writes: "I think I will now scrub this latest literary blip from my memory, and watch old Kids Incorporated clips for the rest of the day to ease my pain."

Jen writes: "Remember, your body is a temple, not a 7-Eleven."

The St. Petersburg Times writes … Oh, who cares. Nobody's going to buy this book anyway.
