If you ever wonder what to do with those zillions of brain cells lying around dormant in that head of yours, maybe you should try filling 'em up with information from Jeeves, the friendly answer man from Ask.com. Just Curious, Jeeves is an entertaining trivia book that makes a great companion for traveling or on a sluggish sick day. Categories range from lighthearted to surprisingly educational--whether it's Bozo the Clown's shoe size you're looking for (83AAA) or the last words of assorted historical figures, this little volume contains 1,001 questions and answers, as well as contact information for plenty more. Equally appropriate for all family members, several chapters present some interesting after-dinner activities. Learn how to make yourself burp with "Stupid Body Tricks," or celebrate an Australian-style Christmas with surfing and a barbecue, as suggested in "Celebrate!" Dinner itself can get a little zanier by using the list of diner lingo in "Food for Thought"--why have a boring old hot dog when you can feast with "burn the pup, all the way"? The same chapter brings a recipe for sauerkraut cookies ... could this be the next bake-sale hit? Science, history, literature, and religion are treated in the same mildly irreverent manner as goofier topics like pop culture, snack foods, and brand names. With Web sites and street addresses thrown in for additional information on lots of these questions, this book may be merely a starting point on your quest to be the World's Most Informed Person. If that doesn't pan out financially, turn to "Driving Passions," where you'll find the proper address to send your résumé for a job driving the Oscar Mayer Weinermobile. --Jill Lightner
What a disappointment! I love trivia, and trivia books, but this one is just stupid! The five minutes it took to read certainly weren't worth the money. No index. Read morePublished on May 19 2001
