OK, this is funny.
My fave: “For the Love of Scottie McMullet.” Yours?
(Thanks: Eric Zorn.)

I like “Gimme Back my Shirt”.
The interiors of romance novels are worse than the exteriors. While working in the office of a public library, I always had a stack of ’em on my desk to be processed in or out. We had a fool for a boss which meant that someone usually had a bleeding lower lip as proof of an effort to remain silent. The cure was to grab a romance novel, flip to any page, and read aloud until everyone in the office collapsed in fits of laughter. Can be quite the day brightener. Try it yourself sometime.

Never understood what hetero gals found so sexy ’bout quivering manhoods. Them hoods only quiver when they ain’t stretched taut. Kinda like old ladies with turkey neck. Fire helmets�now them’s cool.

“From the bestselling author of Wisconsin Whore Dog” got us all laughing.

They’re all good, but I’d say “I’m About to Let One” was aimed straight at my low, low view of things.

They were all terrific! Thanks for the link – sent it on to several friends who all loved it.

I’m with you on Scotty McMullet. Great cover.

My vote goes to “Lord of the Tube Socks”, with “Gimme Back My Shirt” a close second, followed by “Lord of the Hissy Fit” — they’re all priceless!

btw, as for “lord of the tube socks” — iirc, when tube socks were on the market in the 1970s, they ususally had three colored stripes — red, blue, green, gold, etc. — at the top — a thick one with two skinnier ones above and below it.
therefore, lord of the tube socks isn’t really and truly wearing tube socks.
hate to be pedantic about it, but … accuracy, nn; you’re a journalist.

I was most impressed with the quality of the typography. Where did he find all those swirling fonts? Someone put a huge effort into clearing out the old type and laying in the new.

Hey, I remember all white tube socks. Didn’t George Bush I go shopping for them in Kmart once? I used to buy the all white ones for my kids, until I discovered even cheaper socks with actual heels and toes at Costco.
