    Double Entendres and Mistaken Messages!

    Caution: This book contains many messages that denote sex acts, bodily functions, and ¿unmentionable¿ parts of the human anatomy using colloquial terms. Overall, the effect is mildly off-color word play, rather than grossness or crudity for its own sake. The entries in this book are all taken from material provided by readers of the National Lampoon for its ¿True Facts¿ feature. Each item is illustrated by the proof that the information really existed, whether by error or intent. Each is ¿an odd, often ironic, yet always genuine example of real-life funny stuff.¿ The sources are most frequently from newspaper headlines, business and street signs, personal ads, display ads, tombstones, movie marquees, and announcements of marriages and engagements. Most of the double entendres would be edited out of this review if I included them, because they are that explicit. In most cases, there is one illustration on a page, with a caption that plays off of it. For example, there¿s a photograph of a sign that says ¿Almosta Farm¿ with a caption that precedes the sign saying, ¿For the closest thing in vegetables, it¿s . . . .¿ In some cases there are three or four examples that fit the caption, reproduced on the same page. Of the examples that I can quote, here are a few of my favorites: ¿Diesel Fried Chicken¿ ¿Try our cough syrup. You will never get any better.¿ Wedding headlines for ¿Snow-White,¿ ¿Flint-Stone,¿ and ¿Good-Loser.¿ ¿Mail-order Funeral¿ ¿Rent-All Concrete Skis¿ ¿Free Flea Dip.¿ A lot of the most off-color words are typos involving ¿clean¿ words in a very funny context. I have only two complaints about the book. First, the reproduction of the illustrations is very poor quality. Often, you have to look pretty closely to see the point. Second, a lot of the examples repeat the same joke from only a slightly different perspective. Greater variety of humorous subjects would have worked better for me. The book¿s most important message though is how poorly we all communicate. While we are imagining a powerful, clear message is being sent, all too often what is coming out the other end is a humorous jumble like those displayed so wonderfully here. So why do people make these egregious mistakes (in those cases where the humor is unintentional)? Basically, they don¿t check to see what message is being received before finishing their communications. Simple to catch near the beginning, the errors can more than undo any benefit that was hoped for . . . instead creating actual harm. Ask people to repeat to you what they think you are trying to tell them. Repeat until you both have the same message in mind! Donald Mitchell, co-author of The 2,000 Percent Solution and The Irresistible Growth Enterprise
