This is a great little tome for anyone with a short attention span;for the simple readon that it is extremely difficult to make your mind occupy more than 30 seconds on a page--go ahead and try--I challenge you.
If you have a Brother-in- Law who fits this criteria,"I was going to buy him a book for his birthday,but didn't; because he already has one." ; here is an excellent gift for him;as it will complete is library.No doubt,he will find it spellbinding and it will give him endless hours of thought provoking reading. However;prepare yourself for endless quotations from him;or if you hear him interrupting the conversation with ,"Did you know...?;take the opportunity to disappear.
The book is loaded with such amazing stuff that many of the learned people in this world;are simply unaware of.
Let me just give you a few examples;
Ten amusing catchphrases beginning with the word" go".ie. "Go and
stick your nose up a dead bear's bum".
Mafia nicknames.ie.Sam Giancana--"Mooney",Ronnie De Angelis--"Balloon
Head", Albert Anastasia--"The Mad Hatter",John Gotti--"The Dapper
Don","The Teflon Don","Mr.Untouchable", and 60 others.
A list of the years in which Friday 13th falls in a January.
Some Latin swearwords.ie. spucatum tauri--bull**it
Some opening lines.ie. "Do you believe in love at first sight,or
should I walk by again?"
Some intriguing surgical operations.ie. glossectomy--removal of all or
part of tongue,rhinoplasty--repair of nose.
Some modern proverbs.ie. "Red sky at night,the reactor's alight/Red
sky at morn,nuclear dawn."
And that's only the beginning,there's over 260 lists and subjects of other useless information;to amuse yourself or to lay on some unsuspecting soul.
