Snoopy is no ordinary beagle! Throughout the years, he has adopted many personas, each unique and full of personality. As Joe Cool, he's aloof, unflappable, above the fray, the hip dog we'd all like to be. As the World War I Flying Ace, he engages in aerial combat with the notorious Red Baron. Snoopy has adopted various guises, and pretended to be all sorts of different animals . . . and people. The Many Faces of Snoopy celebrates eight of Snoopy's most popular alter egos, along with quotes from Snoopy himself.
We've all had bad days: lost our keys, broken a nail, missed a train. Some days, however, are much worse than others, as Justin Racz proves in this hilarious new addition to the smash hit Worse Than Yours series. Collecting fifty of the most memorable "bad days," this outrageous book catalogs everything from the daily ("First gray hair noticed") to the legendary ("Eve eats apple"), from the public ("New York City sanitation strike") to the painfully private ("Ricky gets atomic wedgie, 1976"). An inspired and fully illustrated testament to schadenfreude, 50 Days Worse than Yours proves that nothing is as universal as suffering.
Whether you're a kid ("Picked last in gym-again"), a new parent ("Barney invented"), or facing down middle age ("AARP card arrives"), you can be sure to find some comfort in this riotous compilation of things gone wrong. After all, it could have been much, much worse...

A goofy book celebrating the Dad Joke lifestyle and packed with puns and wordplay for your favorite punster.

Includes quality pre-loaded puns, the taxonomy of the different types of wordplay, and famous punsters in history and on screen.
This book explores the fascinating discourse on Jewish wit in the twentieth century when the Jewish joke became the subject of serious humanistic inquiry and inserted itself into the cultural and political debates among Germans and Jews against the ideologically-charged backdrop of anti-Semitism, the Jewish question, and the Holocaust.
Germaine Kiecke was a foundling, an orphan.
Now she is a successful art academic who defines herself
by her profession and prefers to experience the world
through art and an augmented reality game
called Happy Family.
But when the artist Tom Hannah, the creative force behind the
game, moves to Spain, surrounds himself with high walls, three
large dogs, and a runaway who teaches him to think like a tree,
his existential melt-down threatens all Germaine holds dear.
Low-life writer and unrepentant alcoholic Henry Chinaski was born to survive. After decades of slacking off at low-paying dead-end jobs, blowing his cash on booze and women, and scrimping by in flea-bitten apartments, Chinaski sees his poetic star rising at last. Now, at fifty, he is reveling in his sudden rock-star life, running three hundred hangovers a year, and maintaining a sex life that would cripple Casanova.
With all of Bukowski's trademark humor and gritty, dark honesty, this 1978 follow-up to Post Office and Factotum is an uncompromising account of life on the edge.
