Summary

A humorous collection of commentary, jokes, and quotes on Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza, and New Year’s. 
 
Bah! Humbug! It’s that time of year again. . . . Time to spend too much, drink too much, eat too much, smile falsely, dig down deep to try and find “good cheer,” battle crowds, try to find parking in over-crowded lots, ignore surly clerks, bartenders, waiters, valets, and parking lot attendants, all in the pursuit of that moment of happiness known throughout the world as . . . dun, dun, dun: the Holidays. Has there ever been a time more suited to tapping into snark? With commentary, jokes, and quotes regarding Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza, New Year’s; on bad presents, worse in-laws, horrible children, and much more glorious excess. Enjoy such rotten sugar plums as:“Santa Claus has the right idea. Visit people once a year.” —Victor Borge“If someone screws up on their gift, there are seven more days to correct it . . . No awkward explanations of virgin birth . . . No Irving Berlin songs.” —Among the Top Ten Reasons to Love Hanukkah“What I don’t like about office Christmas parties is looking for a job the next day.” —Phyllis Diller 
 
Snark, the Herald Angels Sing is destined to be a holiday classic.

    From the very first week of Tim Clancy's 25-year career as a high school English teacher, he began to notice and collect funny and strange moments he discovered in his students' writing, such as: "The word 'witch' has become a household word, like 'spatula,'" and "Wherever excitement is, there will always be romance. Trust me." He would occasionally share them with his classes, who enjoyed them as much as he did, and so this book was born. Best in Class collects nearly 200 of the most entertaining of these moments culled from real student writing and complements them with dozens of playful illustrations to create a sympathetically hilarious book for anyone who has muddled their way through the wilderness of a school writing assignment.

    Cat Shaming is a hilarious collection of photos from owners who express their frustration when their furry best friend does something bad. Millions of cat owners can relate to the antics of these felines with plenty of pictures of shamed—but nevertheless adorable and innocent-looking—kitties.
