Dial M for Miscellany : Mug & Mali's Miscellany Volume 33
Do you feel threatening, pointed forces are aimed at you? Do you get sharp, uneasy feelings? Are you afraid to answer the phone? Do you worry about murder, slaying, massacre, killing, assassination, and homicide? Do you fear sharp objects, blunt instruments, knives, saws, cleavers, garrotes, nooses, guns, gasoline, swords, poison, rifles, defenestration, drowning, snakes, spiders, crazed weasels, bloodthirsty nephews, butlers, daggers, axes, sharks, skewers, weed whackers, thin ice, electrocutions, hammers, and explosives? Can you find modern uses for old peculiar British words? Do you need dozens of new names for ugly or disagreeable babies? Are you up-to-date on biographies of classic authors? What is Mug Ross painting? Do you hope to be exposed to items of New Century Dada? Are you passionate about untrue defamatory factoids? Do you enjoy fowl watching? Are you at an emotional standstill? Do you need to generate buzz phrases? What are Mr. Monk's fears and worries? Don't you want to see Dada-based automatic pictures and cocktails? Does the idea of cocktail poetry dismay you? Have you smelled no evil? Can you find the differences, and fill in the blanks? Are you disturbed by images of international urination? If you like your books with a high picture-to-text ratio (if you know what we mean), then get this miscellaneous mixture of cocktails, photo mash-ups, silly factoids, and emotion-laden drinking. In spite of angry mobs of relatives and literary agents, Mug and Mali gave birth to this new volume of scruffy miscellany. Readers will find the miscellany startling and the cocktails addicting - and vice-versa. "Dial M for Miscellany" is uncouth, yet preposterous, over-shadowing such lesser works as, "How To Lick Salt" and "Do Trousers Matter?" It's another piece of work that will keep you up nights reading and drinking. Enjoy!

About John H Boose
Mug and Mali are currently Weasel Breeders at the Constance Noring Institute for the Study of Illiterate Fiction, where their work on cliche detoxification has made them subjects in numerous experiments. They were the first to suggest the use of goat masking as an effective way to frighten frogs. While interns at 2M's Boris Scilley Yellow Sticky Lab they illuminated both upper and lower brain approaches to left field theory and were co-guest editors (with Rufus Leaking) of "Do Trousers Matter?" Mug and Mali enjoy dulling others' wits through the application of delicious cocktails, cooking up mischief, stacking manure, and advocating monkey-wrenching as a tactic of last resort."
