Dave Barry Is Not Making This Up Author:Dave Barry THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER — YOU CAN'T MAKE THIS STUFF UP — Dave Barry wouldn't lie--and here are the real life, laugh-out-loud stories from across America to prove it: a U.S. Supreme Court justice shares his remedy for preventing gas ("I had not realized that this was a matter of concern in the highest levels of government"); a newspaper headl... more »ine in Ohio announces the combustibility of strawberry Pop-Tarts ("A story that can really help you gain a better understanding of how you can be killed by breakfast snack food"); a frightening fact that snakes have mastered the pipelines leading directly to your toilet--and they're not shy ("Many women might view this as a fair punishment for all the billions of times that guys have left the seat up").
Get up-close with Dave as he examines UFO thrillseekers and Elvis- worshippers, plays lead guitar with a horrifying rock band that includes Stephen King, and swears to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth...so God help you!
This is a great book for those who just love how silly things can get sometimes. I always enjoyed Dave Barry's newspaper column, and this book is much the same. His alert readers send notice of oddball happenings or newspaper articles that are a bit odd - and off Dave goes! Good for kids 13 to 80 (I don't remember exactly, but there may be a bit off-color humor there)
