Alcohol Addiction dLe on Morning Joe becausery humor very rarely translate well in book formI think with comedy writers tend to over think it and they think every sentences has to be a hilarious line Which isn t the case And this satire turned out to be a little too ridiculous I couldn t even get through the chapter about Tiger Wood s sex addictionNot to say there wasn t some truly funny parts you just had to Mobilizing New York dig and look past the affectedly vulgar tone I also might not have enjoyed it as much considering all the jokes were rather time sensitive and Ion t care any about half of the people that are made fun ofSorry Willie Fun book This is a collection of SHORT FICTIONAL STORIES INVOLVING VARIOUS TABLOID fictional stories involving various tabloid Some fans of some of these people might possibly object to the portrayals but Geist seems pretty much on target at least most of the time I m not much of a celebrity watcher so some of the nuances of these pieces may have escaped me I think my favorite is probably the one about inducting people into the 15 Minutes Hall of Fame I suspect that most of the jokes will only become obscure with the passage of time Who s Kevin Federline again And I ve never heard of this Snooki woman either Best to enjoy it while it lasts then.

laughter Witty Worth reading if re up on history religion and culture to get it hated it idn t find it funny but I misunderstood the premise when I picked it up I thought it was a book about stories that were false but represented thought it was a book about stories that were false but represented true like Lies Across America when it is actually just fake stories like The Onion or The New Yorker s Shouts Murmers I think this is one of the worst books I have ever read In fact I usually see books all the way through This book was obviously written by Willie Geist in one ay while he smoked crack cocaine This is poorly written unimaginative and vulgar which I only mind in combination with the first two Yes I will admit some chapters were funnier than others but I think this book The Barefoot Girl: A Novel of St. Margaret, Patroness of the Abused deserves a higher rating on here The chapter on Eliot Spitzer was so sick it actua.
