THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
YOU CAN'T MAKE THIS STUFF UP
Dave Barry wouldn't lie--and here are the real life, laugh-out-loud stories from across America to prove it: a U.S. Supreme Court justice shares his remedy for preventing gas ("I had not realized that this was a matter of concern in the highest levels of government"); a newspaper headline in Ohio announces the combustibility of strawberry Pop-Tarts ("A story that can really help you gain a better understanding of how you can be killed by breakfast snack food"); a frightening fact that snakes have mastered the pipelines leading directly to your toilet--and they're not shy ("Many women might view this as a fair punishment for all the billions of times that guys have left the seat up").
Get up-close with Dave as he examines UFO thrillseekers and Elvis- worshippers, plays lead guitar with a horrifying rock band that includes Stephen King, and swears to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth...so God help you!

This is the 3rd book by Barry that I've read in the last month. His writings are so amusing, one can't help chuckling. He makes comments on everyday things in our lives and helps us see the humor.

The funniest part of this whole book was the column he wrote asking readers to send in song titles & lyrics they thought were awful. I laughed out loud when recalling these awful songs, & when I read what others thought about these songs. Otherwise, the book was so-so. I seemed to think just reading Dave's column in the newspaper was funnier than in his books, which seems really odd. But I've read 3 of his books so far, and they were barely funny.
