Guy Humor

"The Bad Idea Catalog" by Chris Bittler and Dave Markov 100 pages $12.95 (25 cents at the PV Library book sale.)

This is a soft-cover book with a banner running across the front cover: "10 to 100% off everything you'll NEVER want and NEVER need."

Such as: one-ounce cans of soda for kids who demand one, take one sip and run off. Roof skis - turn your own house roof into an Alp - never pay chalet rent again! A rain gauge hat -- a vertical tube on top measures rainfall - while you're out in it. Threadless bolts (99 cents a bag) Vice Presidential trading cards...

More "guy humor:" "3 Ton Metal Thing - We don't know what it is. We don't know what it can do. If you want it, come and get it. It's blocking the elevators. Free"

"Stuffed Grapes - Fine Italian red grapes stuffed with pimientos, bottled in olive oil. An acquired taste. $12."

Women's Humor (or at least this woman's) "I'm Not a Lawyer, But ..." by Gabby Jiggs. "The kind of legal advice you'd expect from a temporary legal secretary with over 20 months experience at 14 different law firms. Jiggs has typed and filed some of the most important briefs in North Dakota history..."
