Nasty

Oh now here is a book that will be a big gag (hee hee) gift of the season, a nonfiction study of shit and how we deal with all of it, called The Big Necessity. It has some big name blurbage, which must be take with a pinch of fleur de sel. It comes out in the US next week, but this British review makes it look good.

Oh god, the next "On Bullshit," just in time for the holidays. I don't know if I have the strength.

I bet that one is mostly checked out by snickering teens.

Those teens are going to be disappointed--"On Bullshit" is the most boring and pointless book ever written by a boring and pointless academic. And that's saying something.

I got that sense from the reviews and avoided the book. Otherwise I might have appeared to be a snickering thirtysomething.
