Product description

Pulitzer Prize-winning humorist Dave Barry is a pretty amiable guy. But lately, he' s been getting a little worked up. What could make a mild-mannered man of words so hot under the collar? Well, a lot of things- like bad public art, Internet millionaires, SUVs, Regis Philbin . . . and even bigger problems, like - The slower-than-deceased-livestock left-lane drivers who apparently believe that the right lane is sacred and must never come in direct contact with tires - The parent-misery quotient of last-minute school science fair projects - Day trading and other careers that never require you to take off your bathrobe - The plague of the low-flow toilets, which is so bad that even in Miami, where you can buy drugs just by opening your front door and yelling " Hey! I want some crack, " you can' t even sell your first born to get a normal-flushing toilet Dave Barry is not taking any of this sitting down. He' s going to stand up for the rights of all Americans against ridiculously named specialty " - chino" coffees and the IRS. Just as soon as he gets the darn toilet flushed.

Review quote

" Dave Barry is one funny human." - "San Francisco Examiner" " ONE OF BARRY' S BEST COLLECTIONS, this book should delight his devoted readers and will surely make the uninitiated sit up and take notice." - The Associated Press " Reading Barry with another person in the room invariably elicits one of two responses: ' What' s so funny' or ' For God' s sake, shut up' ." - "The New York Times"
