RUDE BRITAIN: THE 100 RUDEST PLACE NAMES IN BRITAIN, Bailey, Rob
1 Bailey, Rob RUDE BRITAIN: THE 100 RUDEST PLACE NAMES IN BRITAIN
Boxtree, Limited 2005 0752225812 / 9780752225814 Hardcover Very Good/Very Good 
Britain has a history common to many islands: it is one of repeated invasio n, occupation and assimilation. Each phase of this history has left its mar k on our culture, architecture, language and place names. A rich mix of Cel tic, Norse, Scandinavian, Anglo-Saxon, French and Latin have made the Engli sh language a gift to poets and writers. However, the nuances and double me anings so favoured by creative writers have also led to a number of very ru de place names. Rude Britain is a compilation of 100 of the best and rudest place names, each one photographed and explained by authors Rob Bailey and Ed Hurst. From streets such as Fanny Avenue, Willey Lane, Titty Ho and Asshouse Lane to a village called Cocks; Great Britain throws up a wealth of odd names that have somehow been overlooked by the nation. Until now.

4 Boynton, Sandra DON'T LET THE TURKEYS GET YOU DOWN
Workman Publishing Company 1986 0894800132 / 9780894800139 Paperback Very Good 
A read copy, but no markings throughout, spine unblemished, not an ex-lib e dition: Dedicated to Whom It May Concern, Don't Let the Turkeys Get You Down is San dra Boynton's hilarious commentary and 150 full-color drawings identifying the ubiquitous turkey's distinguishing characteristics and most common habi tats. Any similarity to actual persons living or in Los Angeles is strictly unintentional, including the stuff on page 54 that will remind many people of Snigbert Knuddsen. From the turkeys extremely large ego to its arrogant behavior, the traits a re classified. Boynton traces the turkey's influence on history, the neighb orhood, the family, more. Several profiles in turkitude and a pop quiz furt her uncover turkeys in the immediate vicinity. Forewarned is forearmed: turkeys possess absolutely unwarranted and absolutely unshakable self-confidence. They insist on high visibility, and can show up at a party, in an argument, on the jogging path. The reader's best defense is through study of this important manual, keying in on the single most important turkey fact: a turkey never knows that it is a turkey.

ARISTOTLE AND AN AARDVARK GO TO WASHINGTON, Cathcart, Thomas
8 Cathcart, Thomas ARISTOTLE AND AN AARDVARK GO TO WASHINGTON
Abrams Image 2008 0810995417 / 9780810995413 Hardcover Very Good 
Thomas Cathcart and Daniel Klein, authors of the national bestseller Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar, aren't falling for any election year claptr ap-and they don't want their readers to either! In Aristotle and an Aardvar k Go to Washington, our two favorite philosopher-comedians return just in t ime to save us from the double-speak, flim-flam, and alternate reality of p olitics in America. Deploying jokes and cartoon as well as the occasional insight from Aristotl e and his peers, Cathcart and Klein explain what politicos are up to when t hey state: "The absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence." (Donal d Rumsfeld), "It depends on what the meaning of the word ?is' is." (Bill Cl inton), or even, "We hold these truths to be self-evident..." (Thomas Jeffe rson, et al). Drawing from the pronouncements of everyone from Caesar to Condoleeza Rice, Genghis Kahn to Hillary Clinton, and Adolf Hitler to Al Sharpton. Cathcart and Klein help us learn to identify tricks such as "The Texas Sharpshooter Fallacy" (non causa pro causa) and the "The Fallacy Fallacy" (argumentum and logicam). Aristotle and an Aardvark is for anyone who ever felt like the politicos and pundits were speaking Greek. At least Cathcart and Klein provide the Latin name for it (raudatio publica)!

16 Davies, Robertson THE PAPERS OF SAMUEL MARCHBANKS
Penguin 1990 0140097716 / 9780140097719 Paperback Very Good 
From Library Journal In this collection of his newspaper pieces, mostly from the late Forties, Davies introduces us to his alter ego, a mildly irascible curmudgeon whose opinions and observations have been so popular in Canada that three volumes of his columns have been published there: The Diary , The Table Talk , and The Garland of Miscellania. Davies has re-edited them to produce a single volume and in the prefatory "A Drink with Marchbanks" even given us his own view of the journalist he created. A pleasant entertainment covering such diverse topics as politics, theater, and manners, this volume offers a humorous and insightful picture of postwar Canadian life as seen through the eyes of a delightful eccentric who reminds this reader of a boozeless W. C. Fields.

19 Dole, Robert GREAT POLITICAL WIT
Nan A. Talese 1998 0385493479 / 9780385493475 First Hardcover Fine/Fine 
A highly collectible first edition/printing, a tight clean copy, protected in a new brodart wrapper, no inscriptions or markings, not price clipped an ex-library or a book of the month club edition. Shortly after his defeat in the 1996 U.S. presidential election, Republican Bob Dole was invited to appear on David Letterman's Late Show. Letterman asked Dole about President Clinton's weight, but Dole wasn't taking the bait. "I never tried to lift him," he retorted. "I just tried to beat him." That was the first time many Americans got to see a side of Bob Dole rarely revealed to the public during his 36 years on Capitol Hill--the dry, wicked sense of humor that quickly became a defining characteristic of his postpolitical career.
