Crazy Quilt: Remarkable Comic Confusions Including Sinister Dishes and Weird Arrangements, High Life, Bureaucracy Gone Mad, Antilogies, and Other Threats to Public Orderby John Train, Pierre Le-Tan
A Turkish restaurant proposes:/i>/i>/i>
John Train's "remarkable" books have been described by the New York Times as "hilarious masterpieces" and by the London Times as "amazingly rich." They make perfect gifts. Crazy Quilt is a new collection of outrageous and comic imbroglios on such subjects as travel, the high life, bureaucracy and language.
A Turkish restaurant proposes: Brain Salad and Virgin Lips. A jumbo jet is forced to turn back when pigs in the hold fart so exuberantly that they set off the gas alarm. Princess Anne and Capt. Mark Phillips receive a weird collection of wedding presents. In the business directory, Train lists Cheatham and Steele, Bankers (Oregon); Dr. Dotti, Psychiatrist (Rome, Italy); and Argue & Phibbs, Solicitors (Ireland). The Financial Times reports a discussion between Australian business partners that turned ugly when one man has his nose bitten off after sinking his teeth into the other's thumb.
