How to Avoid Matrimony
Okay all you rogue males, you don’t want to be trapped by the ladies looking for marriage. This guy has you covered with some interesting advice so you can avoid having the life sucked out of you by some airhead or harpy out to trap you into marriage.
Naturally you can’t be going with out feminine companionship, but you want to avoid certain kinds of women. For example: girls with boring factory jobs, because they have boring factory jobs; divorced women because they are kind of desperate; foreign girls, girls with pushy mothers, etc. Be vigilant!
Best part: all the charts and illustrations so you really can visualize your bachelor strategies.
Time for me to round up some rogue males,
The Truth About Golf and Other Lies
Submitter: The book is amusing both because of the comedic author and its age! It has not left our public library shelf in over eight years.
Holly: I find books like this more difficult to weed. If it hasn’t left the shelf in eight years, I’d weed it too, but it isn’t awful in and of itself. I have patrons who would still enjoy this if I put it in their hands, but they are unlikely to find it on their own. Click here to read the IMDB bio on Buddy.
I’m not sure a book can tell you how to be funny, whoops, I mean really funny, but this book does. It literally tells you what is funny. Example: simple mindedness also known as a “nice way to say stupid”. On the plus side, there are discussions about some excellent talent such as Lily Tomlin, Steve Martin, Johnny Carson, and Jack Benny. For what it’s worth, I would think this book is more about improv and comedic acting than just “being funny”. Even for 1988, this one had too many references to shows in the 1960s and earlier. (Find me a kid that knows about the show Laugh In heck, even their parents probably won’t know.)
