Summary

"A ripping good story." —Betsy Ashton, author of the Mad Max Mysteries
  
Dr. Jason Longfellow is a bored FDA drug reviewer in the midst of a serious midlife crisis. He has a shiny new convertible he can’t fit into, an exasperated wife who thinks he’s lost his mind, three daughters who always side with mom, and with a new PI license he fancies himself a modern-day Jessica Fletcher. What could go wrong? Carpooling to work one morning, Jason gets his first case when his attractive brunette passenger erupts into relentless spontaneous orgasms. Intent on clearing himself of any wrongdoing in the eyes of Mrs. Longfellow, Jason stumbles onto a chain of evidence that leads to CureStuff Pharmaceuticals, a clinical drug trial, and a number of improbably good-looking female suspects. Will Jason resist temptations of the flesh, solve the case and prove once and for all that he is at least as smart as his five-year-old? Or will his clever plans get him murdered . . . by his wife?

    It was the year that saw Rangers Football Club face Big Tax, administration and life in Division Three, Greece struggle with teetering debt, Scots wrestle with the idea of a referendum on independence and the Scottish football team watching Euro 2012 from the comfort of their sofas. And what did most Scots do? Well, of course, we laughed about it - most of the time! Fortunately you sent your musings to The Herald newspaper's Diary column, where views on world affairs, plus all the stories of the daft and amusing things that happened in Scotland's pubs, trains, streets and homes, are gathered, polished and printed. This is a compilation of the best of these stories collected from all over Scotland and the far corners of the world to help you raise a smile - and maybe even a chuckle - through the harsh Scottish winter and beyond.

  • Humor in Law Enforcement [Factually Speaking] - Comical Antics Informational Events Stories and Issues Relevant to the Public Cops and the Author - cover

    Humor in Law Enforcement...

    This is Barney Smiths second book.  HUMOR IN LAW ENFORCEMENT [Factually Speaking] parallels his first book inasmuch as it humorously touches on people who had ties with, knowledge about, or experience with law enforcement.   
         Additionally, this book deals with factual actions of former law enforcement officers, average citizens, not-so-average citizens, and the author.  Also included are additional factual law enforcementrelated issues, and law enforcementrelated jokes involving cops and citizens.  
         Some citizens may be able to recognize themselves in one of the stories or situations but, in all probability, will not admit it.  Some of the officers may also recognize themselves (or be recognized), but they surely will not brag about it or bring it to anyones attention.  We will just have to let that information remain undocumented.
    
                                          Sorry, but it is what it is.

    Airport & Aviation Humor - A...

    I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to share the lighter side of airport and aviation employees.  The vast majority of people I encountered at the airport [from all classes and careers], enjoyed humor.  Additionally, I found that the average person can recognize the difference between fact and fiction, truth and lies and more importantly, humor versus sarcasm.  As I mentioned earlier, humor has been determined to be a stress reducer, and often, a means of increasing morale.  
    
    Remember, I referred to actual passengers and employees in trying to encourage the innocent while protecting the guilty.

    Franglais is the ultimate invented language. A source of unending delight to anyone who did French at school, it is the creation of the great English humorist Miles Kington. This new collection brings together the best pieces written in the two-and-a-half decades up to the author's tragic death in 2008. Each appears in paperback for the first time, with more than 50 specially commissioned illustrations by Wendy Hoile. These 101 comic masterpieces provide a timeless survey of the British character in all its eccentricity. Page after page is filled with hilariously recognizable send-ups of our national life, from Wimbledon to Windsor Safari Park, grouse-shooting to Guy Fawkes' night, the library to the lost property office. In no time even the most linguistically challenged reader will be thinking, speaking and dreaming Franglais. For, in the words of the grand-mastre himself: 'Parler franglais c'est un doddle!'

    Are you someone who's always running late for work? Is your boss getting fed up with your generic explanations like, "I was stuck in traffic" or "I was having car troubles"? If you need to spice up your repertoire of excuses, '365 Reasons Why I'm Too Late For Work' is a must have in your arsenal of deceit. Is your boss suspicious of your latest half-assed attempt to explain your tardiness? Then hit him with a new excuse he's sure to never see coming. Try this on for size, "I got stuck in the bathtub." Or how about, "I drove the wrong way. My GPS hung upside down in my car." With a wide range of clever explanations, you have a new one to try out every day. Sure, it's not recommended to burn one every day and show up late for work for a flat year, but no one's judging. 
     
    As a warning to readers, the elaborate phrases in this book are not confirmed to exonerate your tardiness. Some are valid, boss-proof ideas that should get you off the hook, while others will test your boss's patience and sense of humor. Does your boss not possess a single humorous bone in his body? Well, excuse away at your own risk. This book does not guarantee you'll keep your job, but hey, you had a laugh, and in the end, that's what life's all about. And truthfully, how can you pass attempting a gem like, "I couldn't find a parking spot, so I've parked my car back at home and came by foot." So, embrace your tardiness with a little flair of creativity with '365 Reasons Why I'm Too Late For Work'. You'll never regret it. Well, unless you lose your job. But you probably won't... right?

    Good news, Russell Howard fans! 
    It's time to take a butcher's into the mad, rib-tickling, insane yet lovable world of the one of the UK's favourite comedians. 
    Abi Smith heads deep into the West Country to discover how people from as far as Midsomer Norton, Somerset to Minneapolis, USA fell in love with this energetic, mesmerising, boyishly blond Bristolian. 
    How exactly has Russell, the kid who used to sleep with his underpants on his head in an effort to cure his acne, become the geezer who is now headlining shows at the O2 Arena, Wembley and the Royal Albert Hall? 
    How has the timid boy who wouldn't speak at family gatherings because he was too shy become a TV panel-show heavyweight? 
    How has the teen who wore his jeans back-to-front because he thought he looked like a cool rapper become an award-winning stand-up with a string of worldwide sell-out tours to his name? 
    He might describe himself as the 'munter' of all his friends with his wonky teeth and lazy eye, but there is something rather special about this good-natured, good-fun dude whose favourite topics of stand-up quite often include his mother's hilarious antics. 
    One things for sure, he might have been bullied at school, had haircuts from hell and missed out on a career as a footballer but he is certainly having the last laugh now - and we are in the front row laughing out-loud with him.
