    Are you a word-sleuth? Do you derive great pleasure in punning away an afternoon or tackling the crossword puzzle like a fiend? Does the combination of humor and etymological scholarship make you weak in the knees? If so, this book’s for you. Clever readers (and others too!) will laugh in wonder at examples from well-known wits and infamous wisecracks, as well as phrase or two from your dedicated author.Don’t be intimidated by the company that you’ll keep between the covers of Words Gone Wild. Think of author Jim Bernhard as the cruise director, cheekily introducing the work of Shakespeare, Queen Victoria, George S. Kaufman, Dorothy Parker, Groucho Marx, and many more as he defines and exploits the pleasures of puns, limericks, word puzzles, spoonerisms, malapropisms, anagrams, tongue-twisters, croakers, double-entendres, and more! Enjoy all types of word play, such as:  Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana.  The pony was unable to talk because he was a little hoarse.  Two peanuts walk into a bar. One was a salted.  The chicken that crossed the road was poultry in motion.  As the gardener said when asked why he was cutting the grass with a pair of scissors: “That’s all there is; there isn’t any mower.”Whether you enjoy playing with words, watching words at play, or consider yourself a word-watching player, you’ll love this book. After all, the words in this book just want you to have fun.

    Indonesia sits centrally on the equator and is surrounded by Malaysia, East Timor, Papua New Guinea, Singapore, the Philippines, Australia, Palau, Vietnam, Thailand, and India. A plethora of cultures have added to Indonesia's history, going back to Chinese and Indian traders in the 1st century AD. Marco Polo was the first European to land at Sumatra, and later in their search for the legendary Spice Islands, Portuguese and Spanish explorers also learned of Indonesia. Starting in the late 1500's, the Dutch held the islands for three centuries and the islands were commonly termed the Dutch East Indies. In 1945, the Indonesian people declared independence and they officially achieved statehood in 1950. In many ways a young and forward looking country, Indonesia embraces all of its diverse population and traditions under the banner of 'One Country, One Nation'.

Of Indonesia's multitude of islands, about 6,000 can be considered inhabited. The six main islands one is likely to visit are Sumatra, Java, Kalimantan (the Indonesian portion of the island of Borneo), Bali, Sulawesi (formerly Celebes), and Papua (the western half of New Guinea Island). We also include information in this guide for the Maluku island group (also called the Moluccas, the original spice islands) and the Nusa Tengarra Islands. While many vacationers, especially those with limited time, might concentrate on an area developed for tourism such as Java or Bali, one could easily spend a month or more and barely begin to discover some of Indonesia's hidden corners and remote treasures.
