Overview

A collection of hilarious, serious, poignant and psychotic essays that examine our world.

Welcome to the world of Slightly Off, a college column where politicians are advised to create scandals for themselves (to get free media coverage), the Tooth Fairy is wanted by the FBI (for trafficking) and Jesus Christ and Jason Voorhees have a lot in common (they both came back from the dead, for instance).

In Slightly Off: God, Sex and All Stops in Between, the best of over four years of Slightly Off is gathered. At times hilarious, serious, poignant, and psychotic, this is a collection that slices into every facet of American culture. It includes:

* "Female Porn" — The scientific study that proves once and for all that Cosmo is worse than Playboy.

* "Frogs, Dogs and David Arquette" — Why, in an era of information, do our commercials provide anything but?

* "English 101" — This is where your language came from. Unfortunately, it's been influenced by the French.

* "I Killed Someone" — A reflection on the time the author spent with Wanda Jean Allen, a death row inmate who made national headlines, just weeks before her execution.

Once you read this, you may never look at your world the same way again. You certainly will never look at mustard the same way again.

    Daniel has an interesting view on life that is just to die for. If you like humor mixed with sacaism on everything in life, then this is the book for you.
