Summary

An Unexpected Parody: The Unauthorized Spoof of The Hobbit revisits the film with mayhem, mirth, and magic missiles—or at least, crumpled newspaper missiles. Torn Teepeeshield, the Hot Prince of the Dwarves, puts aside his developing stardom in dwarf cabaret to quest to the Lame Old Mountain and destroy the dragon Erpolushun, or in the common tongue, Smog. Gonedaft the Grey, formerly known as Gonedaft the Grizzled and Gonedaft of the Rainbow Tie-die that He So Can’t Pull Off, recruits Bumble Baglunch, country gentleman and professional coward, since as an avid comic book fan and all-around geek, Bumble’s too smart to fall prey to obvious fantasy clichés. Together with Bobbin, Noggin, Rover, Clover, Sloppy, Ploppy, Frappe, Hottie, Spottie, Quaff, Sloth, and Ezekiel the dwarves, they journey across Renfair Earth to revive their franchise. Destiny may be a word writers use to pave over plotholes, but Bumble is determined to triumph nonetheless and play as good a game of goblin golf as his ancestors.

    "A man oughta be able to walk home drunk without some damn fool running him off the road, you know."The hub of life in the islands is the local rum shop, and though living in the Windward Islands in the Caribbean might be a little different than other places, maybe move at a slower place, the problems of life are pretty much the same as anywhere else. Still, it's a different kind of world. And here is a short story that peeks inside that world.

    The author of Dad Humor offers an entertaining look at American history’s geniuses, leaders, and dunderheads in a clever quest to define brilliance.   With dry humor and a wealth of fascinating trivia, Bart King explores what it means for a person to be brilliant. What he discovers is that brilliant people are those who walk farther, think deeper, and talk louder than the rest of us. They do what it takes to get the job done—and then some.   The masters of brilliance profiled here include presidential candidate John Lindsay, who released chickens into his opponent’s crowd to spur on a debate; the first female journalist, Anne Newport Royall, who forced an interview with John Quincy Adams after catching him skinny dipping; and Benjamin Franklin, who of course coined the phrase "A penny saved is a penny earned," but also offered the lesser known "A man who lives on hope, dies farting."

    “A harried-looking but willing chicken clucks through all the poses, and the net result is an entertaining take on modern yoga practice.” —Yoga Journal 
     
    Chickens know a few things about feeling fried. That’s why they’ve been practicing yoga for centuries. As this hilariously illustrated guide to simple yoga poses reveals, we have much to learn from their bird-brained wisdom.  
     
    Anyone who feels cooped up or stressed out by the pecking order will feel like a spring chicken in no time thanks to such postures as Chick’s Pose, Snake in the Grass, and Chicken of the Sea. Sections on breathing and stretching are included, and a series of fix-it routines unscramble such problem areas as neck, thighs, and aching feet.  
     
    Plus, thoughtful hen koans (why did the chicken cross the road?) and plucky affirmations invite contemplation and inspire budding yoginis to spread their wings. Googly-eyed, combs akimbo, these very funky chickens will enlighten both beginners and the adept, and are sure to make anyone feel chirpy—all for a nice cheep price.
