Overview

Telling hundreds of true stories about the weird and wacky stuff that happens when people operate outside of the box, author Bob Fenster proves that life is funny when you least expect it but need it the most, in his hilarious book, Twisted: Tales from the Wacky Side of Life.

Filled with tales of outlandish human endeavors, Twisted will have you shaking your head and laughing out loud. For example, the 18th-century lawyer Hugh Brackenridge had a unique response when challenged to a duel: If you want to try your pistols, take some object, a tree or a barn door, about my dimensions. If you hit that, send me word; and I shall acknowledge that if I had been in the same place, you might also have hit me.

Celebrating the crazy things people do and their strange accomplishments in all fields of human activity, Twisted covers a wide range of subjects such as history, the arts, pop culture, sports, and science. The book also investigates entertaining oddities of nature, such as fish that change sex in polluted rivers.

It often happens that I wake at night and begin to think about a serious problem and decide I must tell the Pope about it, Pope John XXII reported. Then I wake up completely and remember I am the Pope.
