A few of these are ringers. P.S. Your Cat is Dead was pretty successful, later made into a play and movie. And Kat Kong is by Dav Pilkey who wrote the bestselling children's series "Captain Underpants!"

Gotta say my fave is the dog one. I'm considering writing a similar one concerning the readers' eyebrows.

One of my favorites was Jerry Rubin's "Steal This Book!"

Caused all kinds of problems in the bookstores.

I think that was Abbie Hoffman. I had the book and there were a few useful scams and life hacks in it.

You're right, it was Hoffman. Sometimes I get those Yippies mixed up! (Rubin's counterculture book of the same era was "Do It!")

Hoffman also wrote "Steal This Urine."

I wasn't familiar with that. Anything to do with passing drug tests?

Yes, kind of. It was about drug laws and enforcement.

Missed Periods and Other Grammar Scares actually looks pretty amusing.
What if the Hokey Pokey really IS what it's all about? Smile

My neighbor rang my doorbell at 2:30 a.m. this morning, can you believe that, 2:30 a.m.!? Lucky for him I was still up playing my drums.

There were a couple that I might be handing out as Yule presents next year.

There's a book on set theory called The Joy of Sets.

Alan Watt has three books available ( in Spiral-Bound Paper Format ), an intertwined trilogy showing much of the esoteric control governing both ancient and modern man:

Cutting Through 1 - The Androgynous (Hermaphroditic) Agenda
See sample page

Cutting Through 2 - A Glimpse into the Great Work
See sample page

Cutting Through 3 - Esoteric Unveiled and the Meaning of Revelations in the High Masonic Tradition

Books: "Cutting Through" 1, 2 and 3 (regular paper books) are $29.50 each or $85.50 for all three

If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

"Dancing with Jesus" looks like a pretty good book, actually.

A little hypocritical on Hoffman's part since if the book was stolen, the cover couldn't be returned for refund as is the practice with unsold books and it would count as a sale for which Hoffman would get royalties.

I found a PDF of the book online which you could download thus you'd really be stealing the book as no one would get any royalties from your possession of the text.

Looks similar to Eats, Shoots & Leaves which is a fun little book.

"A panda walks into a café. He orders a sandwich, eats it, then draws a gun and proceeds to fire it at the other patrons.

"Why?" asks the confused, surviving waiter amidst the carnage, as the panda makes towards the exit. The panda produces a badly punctuated wildlife manual and tosses it over his shoulder.

"Well, I'm a panda," he says. "Look it up."

The waiter turns to the relevant entry in the manual and, sure enough, finds an explanation. "Panda. Large black-and-white bear-like mammal, native to China. Eats, shoots and leaves.""
