Funny story: Book Review - Death of a Transvestite by Ed Wood

Book Review - Death of a Transvestite by Ed Wood

"Hero/heroine Glen Marker sits on Death Row and offers to tell his life story in all its sordid detail in exchange for his last wish: to die in drag! I understand that Saddam Hussein and Colonel Gaddafi made the same request but it was refused. The Fry Chronicles by Stephen Fry This is NOT a cookbook on how to do eggs, french fries or any other food that involves hot oil. After I read i...

Funny story: Book Review - Happy Days by Samuel Beckett

Book Review - Happy Days by Samuel Beckett

Utter drivel! A complaint waste of time and money. No mention of Fonzie, No Ralph Malph, No Richie, No Arnold's and not even a whiff of Mr C or Mrs C. Sorry, and I make NO apologies,to write a book about Happy Days and not include some of the main characters is, quite frankly, idiotic. Samuel Beckett, sir, I beg you rewrite this nonsense and include the aforementioned characters. You...

Funny story: Book Review - Moby Dick by Herman Melville

Book Review - Moby Dick by Herman Melville

Not a biography about an extremely annoying pop star who just moans through his songs, well known for his sample-based electronic music, vegan lifestyle, and support of animal rights...and looks like a bald nerd. No. It is about a big whale. I guess it was my fault, for not reading the title of the book correctly. I thought it was "Moby is a Dick", which of course he is. Anyway, I re...

Funny story: Book Review - Orlando by Virginia Wolfe

Book Review - Orlando by Virginia Wolfe

I was SO disappointed by this book. No mention of Disney. No mention of Sea World. No mention of Wet and Wild. Not a whisper about Universal Studios. Not one hotel recommendation, map or one tip on where to eat. No clue as to where one could purchase womens clothing that could, say, possibly, fit a man. No directions to clubs and nightspots that welcomed secret transvestites. What...

Funny story: Book Review - St Elmo by Augusta Jane Evans

Book Review - St Elmo by Augusta Jane Evans

Wow! First of all, when did they make Elmo a saint? Not that he doesn't deserve it. Let's face it, kids love him, grown ups love him, and it appears now that the Pope loves him! All that work he does, helping kids read, teaching them to eat healthier, and bringing joy to millions. Oscar the Grouch, Big Bird, Count von Count, Prairie Dawn, Grover, and Cookie Monster can only pray th...

Funny story: Book Review - The Elton John Story by Mark Bego

Book Review - The Elton John Story by Mark Bego

The Elton John Story by Mark Bego Okay, I loved this book, I am a big fan of Elton John, fascinating and all that - but it doesn't say if he is gay in real life or just when he is on stage or recording etc. I wish I knew the answer. Idi Amin by Steve Dougherty Brilliant in The Butler, fantastic in The Crying Game, loved him in The Shield and great in Good Morning Vietnam - this man des...

Funny story: Book Review - Whose Body? by Dorothy Sayers

Book Review - Whose Body? by Dorothy Sayers

Whose Body? Just gave me a great idea for a reality/celebrity/quiz show! I truly believe it would be a massive hit! Every week, six celebrities are asked to pose nude with a paper bag on their heads.....and then 3 contestants have to guess who they are! The ratings would be amazing. I would suggest that Rosie O'Donnell, Oprah Winfrey, Ricky Gervais, Kirstie Alley and Seth Rogan and J...

Funny story: Book Review - Quite Ugly One Morning by Christopher Brookmyre

Book Review - Quite Ugly One Morning by Christopher Brookmyre

The title of this book hits the nail right on the head. I have lost count of the times I have gone to bed drunk with a beautiful woman only to wake up, hungover and shocked to find that the pretty woman I went to bed with the night before has been replaced by what I can only say is usually a horrendous female version of my Uncle David...but unlike David they have facial hair. As for the boo...

Funny story: Book Review - Frommer's Greek Islands by John Stewart Bowman

Book Review - Frommer's Greek Islands by John Stewart Bowman

This book was a total waste of my time and money and no use to me whatsoever, as I actually went to Paris for my summer vacation. I suggest that in future, before I read a book - or buy one, that I do some geographical research as these Islands are miles away from France. That said, and in fairness to Greece, despite popular belief, not all Greeks are in fact bearing gifts. My friend, St...

Funny story: Book Review - David Copperfield by Charles Dickens

Book Review - David Copperfield by Charles Dickens

What the hell? Absolutely awful book. The main character performed NO magic, made nothing vanish and there was NO mention of his award winning and long running Las Vegas show. I feel cheated. I was expecting a nasty looking character, covered in make-up, pretending not to be gay, prancing around conjuring things. What did I get? Some whiny story about blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.

Funny story: Book Review - The Hunchback of Notre-Dame by Victor Hugo

Book Review - The Hunchback of Notre-Dame by Victor Hugo

A sad tale about a bent over college football star determined to play for the "Fighting Irish' who sadly never makes it out of Paris. Hideously deformed and mocked by other footballers who laughed at his affliction. I hate people like that. So what, he was retarded, no need to keep mentioning it. It was poignant to hear him shout "The balls, the balls" when yearning to just grab a footba...

Funny story: Book Review - The Pat Conroy Cookbook by Pat Conroy and Suzanne Williamson Pollak

Book Review - The Pat Conroy Cookbook by Pat Conroy and Suzanne Williamson Pollak

I have to say the title of this book is very misleading. I had hoped that this cookbook would explain to me, in detail, the various ways one could cook the author Pat Conroy, whom I admire very much. I was hoping there would be recipes, should you be able to convince above mentioned author (Pat Conroy - mentioned again here), to allow you to cook him. Sadly, tonight at least, there will...

Funny story: Book Review - In Her Shoes by Jennifer Weiner

Book Review - In Her Shoes by Jennifer Weiner

What man hasn't, at one time or another, tried on a pair of women's shoes? I for one have often sneakily worn stilettos, heels and thigh high boots, and danced around the house while my wife is out shopping. I think this is far more common than most men admit. As a kid I would sneak on a pair of my mother's sandals, during visits to relatives, just like all the other kids I suppose, I would...

Funny story: Book Review - The Iliad by Homer

Book Review - The Iliad by Homer

Another great book by Homer. The guy amazes me, he really does, sometimes you think he is a buffoon, an idiot even, and then he pulls this masterpiece out of his bag of tricks. How he gets the time to write, what with working at Mr Burn's nuclear power plant and dealing with that rascal Bart I have no idea, but there is obviously more to the yellow skinned Simpson than meets the eye. I a...

Funny story: Book Review - Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

Book Review - Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

This is not a book about a group of female dwarfs living in a trailer park in Sarasota, Florida. That book has not yet been written. If you can get over that fact and move on and if like me by Chapter 8 realize that this is nothing to do with pole dancing midgets or a beach resort in the Southern United States then you may find yourself liking this book. The Quiet American by Graham Green...

Funny story: Book Review - 12 Angry Men by Reginald Rose

Book Review - 12 Angry Men by Reginald Rose

Probably the same 12 angry men I saw today who had their cars towed from outside my office building. Now they were REALLY angry, but, they only had themselves to blame, as well placed signs do state, very clearly in fact, that parking is reserved for designated pass holders. I am sorry, but I make NO apologies for calling the tow truck on them. The Flintstones Christmas in Bedrock by Kid Rhino...

Funny story: The Polar Express by Chris van Allsburg

The Polar Express by Chris van Allsburg

I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. One minute I was overjoyed that the little boy was heading to see Santa Claus then the next I was saddened by the fact that the poor kid lived in a crappy house, for me it was an emotional roller coaster. For this reader it became the Bipolar Express. Frankenstein by Mary Shelley Man makes a monster. Monster has bolts in his neck, big shoes and looks l...
