by Elizabeth Downing Johnson: When I was first asked to review a book I was all, “Great! I can be a prestigious, well-respected, nay FEARED, literary critic. When I received the book I was all, “Crap. How am I going to explain my reading of this book to my husband?” It’s for ART, I told him. It’s for the INTERNET, I further told him. The book was sent for FREE, by the AUTHOR, who might one day be FAMOUS, and who included a handwritten note on a pink INDEX CARD. And he was all, “OK.” So, without further ado, here is my review of the book entitled 11 Points Guide to Hooking Up, by Sam Greenspan.
1. Even if you’re a person in a committed relationship (married even) you’ll find this book enjoyable. The author is knowledgeable, funny, and…funny. It’s a funny book. Who doesn’t like funny books? Some of the information will be a bit distasteful to you (especially if you’ve spent a lot of time protesting the elimination of your pubic hair, or protesting the idea of threesomes), but overall it is a solid read.
The words “Liam Neeson” and “badass” go hand in hand like peanut butter and jelly. Neeson is to Ireland what Sean Connery is to Scotland: easily the most badass mofos to come out of their respective states. It would make sense then, that most of Liam’s film roles involve him playing some sort of action hero, whether it be as a Greek God, Lion Christ, or Jedi Knight. Would it surprise you to learn then, that most of Neeson’s “heroic” film roles actually paint him as an evil bastard in disguise?
It must be those evil bastard eyes.
So they are supposed to be a the frontiers of knowledge and portals of enlightenment – however, in recent years colleges have incorporated some rather strange courses in their curriculum; while some of them may warrant intellectual curiosity, few others are, well…. downright bizarre. It makes you wonder over time what kind of online college classes may pop up!
Let’s have a look at some courses that may actually leave you a certain “gobsmacked” and wondering… what the hell all this is really about?!
Ah, Legos. For the last 70 years, these interlocking bricks have been amongst the most widely sold toys in the world. They’re fun to play with because they utilize your imagination: you can construct anything you can think of, and then tear it apart so you can build something else. Of course, it doesn’t always work out.
There is a large segment of the world’s population that are extreme masochists, whether they realize it or not. No, these people don’t inadvertently cut themselves shaving because they relish the sight of their own blood or anything stupid like that, they simply put hot sauce on absolutely everything because “it makes it taste better.”
The flames give it that zesty tang everyone craves. Also, the feet.
