Excerpts of a manuscript by far-right firebrand Milo Yiannopoulos have surfaced — and the editor, Mitchell Ivers, notes are giving people a hearty chuckle.

The book “Dangerous” was published by the former Breitbart tech editor back in July, but parts of a draft of his unfinished manuscript appear in a new piece of evidence filed earlier this month in Yiannopoulos’ ongoing lawsuit against his publisher.

TheWrap obtained the document, labeled “Exhibit B,” which outlines liner notes from Yiannopoulos’ editor — some of which are cry-laugh inducing.

“Mostly he was very politely having NONE of Milo’s bullsh–t,” observed software engineer Sarah Mei on Twitter of the media figure’s book editor. “It’s glorious.”

Yiannopoulos is suing Simon & Schuster for reneging on an agreement to publish the book.

Here are the five best zingers from the liner notes:

1: Beauty Routine?
“Beauty regime moved to box at end of chapter, after Nietzsche section,” wrote the editor, relaying his change.

2: Delete the ‘Superfluous Ethnic Joke’
“Delete irrelevance and superfluous ethnic joke,” he instructed Yiannopoulos.

3: Cut the Fecal Waste
“Let’s leave fecal waste out of this chapter.” Yes, it was stated.

4: ‘Hogwash’
“All this pop psychology is hogwash. You can’t say ugly people are drawn to the left. Have you ever seen the people at a Trump rally,” the editor noted to Yiannopoulos.

5: Needs ‘A Lot More Intellectual Rigor’
“This entire section is the most poorly thought out section in the book,” the Simon & Schuster editor stated, according to the lawsuit’s Exhibit B. “If you want to make a case for gay men going back into the closet and marrying women just to have children, you’re going to have to employ a lot more intellectual rigor than you have here.”

“Mitchell Ivers, the liberal gay editor Simon & Schuster put in charge of neutering its edgier conservative authors, hates Republicans and thinks they are all virulent homophobes. He told me so himself,”  Yiannopoulos told TheWrap. “Ivers said one thing in manuscript edits, but quite another when he was giggling and flirting with me. I look forward to prevailing in court”
