Your job’s a mess, your traffic stinks, and you didn’t win Powerball. Here’s a little help (that’s what Michael Scott said). This book is for anyone that enjoys humor and entertainment short reads, plus anyone that has ever said, “More cowbell!” It’s the first book in the Fun Stories series. Each book is its own stand-alone, sensibly priced collection of attitudes, anecdotes and musings. Reviewers say this book is “fun, college type humor,” “a fun bunch of random ideas,” “very funny and on point,” and “laugh out loud funny.” Conversely, one person called it “silly, not that funny.” Your mileage may vary. Consult a doctor if your symptoms last more than four hours. No animals were harmed in the making of this description.
If you enjoy humor that is observational, absurdist, self-deprecating, sarcastic, and laced with wacky deconstruction and unpredictable rhythms, Fun Stories is for you. If you don’t enjoy silly humor, do not download this book and report directly to the Soup Nazi.
Click the audio sample located under the book’s cover and listen to “Chick-fil-A Makes Me Feel Like Leonardo DiCaprio.” The track hit #1 on iTunes Comedy and is a good yardstick for whether you will enjoy the Fun Stories series of eBooks, audiobooks and iTunes releases. Practice saying “my pleasure” after you listen.
Popular chapters from this first book include “I’m the Freakin’ Michael Phelps of Googling,” “Shamelessly Suggestive City Names,” “Happy Friday (Mr. Pee Man),” “Mind Game of Thrones,” and “Ferris Bueller Time.” Many of the audio versions for these chapters have charted on iTunes.
