The Big Book of Duh: A Bathroom Book
If you are stupid, then you're too dumb to know it. If you're smart, then you are no doubt smart enough to doubt yourself." -Bob Fenster
The Big Book of Duh! is the perfect read regardless of where you happen to be sitting-think Uncle John's Bathroom Reader meets The Darwin Awards (without any of the dreary dead stuff).
Proving there is a lot of reading going on in suburbia's smallest room, more than 1.5 million copies of Uncle John's Bathroom Reader have been sold since its first publication in 1988. As the new water-closet contender, Bob Fenster continues his romp into areas of idiot intrigue by chronicling the folly and reckless abandon of the human race.
* Covering such topics as "My Favorite Morons," "It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time," "The Surprising Things People Don't Know," and "Dumb Plays in the Face of Fate," this compendium chronicles the densely inept and decidedly ignorant.
* Featuring outrageous new stories plus the best material from the previous Duh! books, this compilation is the ultimate collection of human stupidity.

This is supposed to be about stupidity. Much of it is factual, but it is sprinkled with errors of fact itself. It's still amusing, but annoying in parts. Read full review
