Redneck Nation: How the South Really Won the War, Graham, Michael
23 Graham, Michael Redneck Nation: How the South Really Won the War
Grand Central Publishing 2003 0446690996 / 9780446690997 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. Forget the calzone and cannoli; the only real difference between Brooklyn, New York, and Birmingham, Alabama, is that you can't get a gun rack into a Trans Am. Trailer parks, pickup trucks, Hee Haw, grits...just the mention of any one of these can elicit a smirk north of the Mason-Dixon Line. But according to Michael Graham, the South is getting the last laugh because redneckery has spread like kudzu from Bangor to Baja. Don't believe it? How else do you explain the incredible popularity of NASCAR and pro wrestling? Now Michael Graham-writer, comedian, radio talk show host, and former GOP flack-fearlessly takes on big government, the public school system, Enron, free speech, illiteracy, multiculturalism, and racism. He proves that the ideas Northern liberals once marched south to protest make up the agenda they promote today. Provocative, honest, and hilarious, Graham takes no prisoners-reminding us that for every slack-jawed yokel swearing he just saw Elvis, there's a left-wing Yankee trying to re-segregate America's schools or watching the chitlin' eating contest on his favorite reality TV show.

Grumpy Old Holidays: The Official Handbook, Holder, Judith
26 Holder, Judith Grumpy Old Holidays: The Official Handbook
Weidenfeld & Nicolson 2007 0297851993 / 9780297851998 Hardcover Very Good 
A crisp clean hardcover, no markings throughout:(no dustjacket) As every Grumpy Old Man and Woman knows, holidays are another way of keeping you all house-trained. They are civilised society's reminder to you that the tedium of everyday life is actually preferable to a fortnight spent in the company of nagging partners, other people's brats, bombastic in-laws; and - worse still - people who can't speak English. As soon as you check in at the airport you are marooned in a sea of screaming babies, dull-faced reps and bland airport food. Count yourself lucky if your optimistic expectation of a good holiday is even remotely fulfilled. Don't be fooled by the glamorous air-brushed photos of American models with tippexed teeth sitting by laguna pools, cocktail in hand. There may be beautiful sunsets by the beach in the brochure, but you'll inevitably find that a) you should have booked the neighbouring hotel (and if you're lucky she'll tell you so, 'ad nauseam') b) you picked the rainy/religious holiday/mosquito/plague infestation season - and wonder why it was so cheap and c) you'll have had too much sex or food by the third or fourth day and be bored of each other, but there's no-one else to talk to, apart from monosyllabic waiting staff and the ubiquitous Russians. A holiday is supposed to be a lovely break, isn't it? This book proves that it is the stay-at-homes who have all the fun.

God, No!: Signs You May Already Be an Atheist and Other Magical Tales, Jillette, Penn
28 Jillette, Penn God, No!: Signs You May Already Be an Atheist and Other Magical Tales
Simon & Schuster 2011 145161036X / 9781451610369 Hardcover Near Fine/Near Fine 
A crisp clean hardcover, no markings throughout: Not only can the man rant, he can write. From the larger, louder half of the world-famous magic duo Penn & Teller co mes a scathingly funny reinterpretation of The Ten Commandments. They are T he Penn Commandments, and they reveal one outrageous and opinionated atheis t's experience in the world. In this rollicking yet honest account of a god less existence, Penn takes readers on a roller coaster of exploration and f lips conventional religious wisdom on its ear to reveal that doubt, skeptic ism, and wonder -- all signs of a general feeling of disbelief -- are to be celebrated and cherished, rather than suppressed. And he tells some pretty damn funny stories along the way. From performing blockbuster shows on the Vegas Strip to the adventures of fatherhood, from an on-going dialogue wit h proselytizers of the Christian Right to the joys of sex while scuba divin g, Jillette's self-created Decalogue invites his reader on a journey of dis covery that is equal parts wise and wisecracking. Praise for God, No! "People who say that libertarians have no heart or atheists have no soul ne ed to read this book. Because Penn Jillette has a lot of both." -- MATT STO NE and TREY PARKER, creators of South Park and the award-winning Broadway m usical The Book of Mormon "There are few people in the country who question more boldly, brashly, and bravely than my friend Penn Jillette. This book is funny, provocative, and profane. But is it right? God, no!" --GLENN BECK "This planet has yielded exactly one mutual friend for Glenn Beck and me and that friend has written a brilliant book called God, No!

30 Keillor, Garrison (Introduction) Pretty Good Joke Book 4th edition
Highbridge Audio 2005 1565119797 / 9781565119796 Paperback Very Good 
A treasury of hilarity from one of America's favorite radio shows. A guy walks into a bar. Eight Canada Geese walk into a bar. A termite jumps up on the bar and asks, "Where is the bar tender?" Drum roll. The Fifth Edition of the perennially popular Pretty Good Joke Book is every thing the first four were and more. More puns, one-liners, light bulb jokes , knock-knock jokes, and third-grader jokes (have you heard the one about E lvis Parsley?). More religion jokes, political jokes, lawyer jokes, blonde jokes, and jokes in questionable taste (Why did the urologist lose his lice nse? He got in trouble with his peers). More jokes about chickens, relation ships, and senior moments (The nice thing about Alzheimer's is you can enjo y the same jokes again and again). It all started back in 1996, when A Prairie Home Companion fans laughed themselves silly during the first Joke Show. The broadcast was such a hit that it became an almost-annual gagfest. Then fans wanted to read the jokes, share them, and pass them around, and the first Pretty Good Joke Book was born. With 362 new jokes (more or less), the latest edition promises countless giggles, chortles, and guffaws anyone-fans of the radio show or not-will enjoy.

Sinner's Guide To The Evangelical Right, Lanham, Robert
32 Lanham, Robert Sinner's Guide To The Evangelical Right
NAL Trade 2006 0451219457 / 9780451219459 Paperback Very Good+ 
A crisp clean softcover, no markings throughout: In his latest offering, the author of The Hipster Handbook brings his brand of sardonic wit and caricature assassination to bear on all things evangelical. Like all great satire, the book is cerebral, irreverent and hilarious, while also edifying in introducing the characters, vocabulary and complex political and social network loosely referred to as the Christian right. Lanham skillfully navigates the "Evangophobe" through the treacherous waters of Colorado Springs ("the Evangelical Vatican"); goes after leaders like Jerry Falwell, whose health, Lanham writes, "has been declining ever since he got shrapnel in his leg from the war on Christmas"; and explains the megachurch phenomenon, where congregations approaching 20,000 people can contribute $6 million annually. Readers familiar with Lanham's style will immediately recognize his self-deprecating irony and indomitably hip sensibility. Despite the sometimes predictable snarkiness and easy targets, Lanham keeps the humor sharp throughout.

Nation Books 2008 1568583524 / 9781568583525 Paperback Very Good 
For some, the American Dream is a pre-fab house in the suburbs with 2.5 kid s and a two-week vacation at the end of the year. To others, it is working a push fruit cart in Oakland in order to put food on the family's table in Oaxaca. In The American Dream Harmon Leon draws upon his experiences of ado pting personas and disguises to infiltrate the various institutions of ever yday life, living among a diverse range of subcultures and learning first h and how they see their vision and utopia. His incursions include working as a marijuana farmer in a hippie commune in Northern California; becoming a carnie in rural Indiana; visiting a tourist attraction in Mexico (that allo ws people to simulate illegally crossing the border); venturing to Hollywoo d while trying to climb the ranks in the star-making machine; and working i n the strawberries fields of California with newly arrived immigrants. The American Dream is a funny, satirical, and ultimately poignant take on what it means to be an American today.

David Letterman's Book of Top Ten Lists and Zesty Lo-Cal Chicken Recipes by David Letterman and the Late Show with David Letterman Writers It's like watching TV -- with the added danger of paper cuts! Top Ten Apologies to People Buying This Book: 10. Cheap glue will only hold the thing together for about six days. 9. Some kids sneaked into the printing plant and added the word "ass" to a lot of the lists. 8. It costs about a dime to print one of these babies -- now take a look at the retail price, sucker! 7. We're using the money we make to buy "little Dutch girl" outfits for Dav e's poodles. 6. The book was hastily assembled overseas by jabbering foreigners who don' t give a damn about you or your family. 5. A drunk maintenance guy fell into the press and parts of him appear on p ages 68-87. 4. Felt safe making jokes about the Amish on TV; forgot some of them might actually see the book. 3. Dave insisted on writing some of these and we had to play along. . 2. There is no remote control. Don't look for one. 1. The book ain't much better than the TV show.

A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. "Nothing has driven home a certain truth about my generation, which is appr oaching the apex of its childbearing years, quite like this." --The New Yorker "A parenting zeitgeist" --Washington Post "A hilarious take on that age-old problem: getting the beloved child to go to sleep." --National Public Radio "A new Bible for weary parents" --New York Times "Resonates powerfully with almost everyone" --Boston Globe "Go the F*** to Sleep challenges stereotypes, opens up prototypes, and ackn owledges that shared sense of failure that comes to all parents who weary o f ever getting their darling(s) to sleep and briefly resuming the illusion of a life of their own." --Midwest Book Review Go the F*** to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real wor ld, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don't always send a todd ler sailing blissfully off to dreamland.
