Overview

Dave Barry Is Not Making This Up by Dave Barry, Jeff MacNelly, Jeff MacNeilly

Dave Barry wouldn't lie -- and here are the real life, laughout-loud stories from across America to prove it: a U.S. Supreme Court justice shares his remedy for preventing gas ("I had not realized that this was a matter of concern in the highest levels of government"); a newspaper headline in Ohio announces the combustibility of strawberry Pop-Tarts ("A story that can really help you gain a better understanding of how you can be killed by breakfast snack food"); the frightening fact that snakes have mastered the pipelines leading directly to your toilet -- and they're not shy ("Many women might view this as a fair punishment for all the billions of times that guys have left the seat up").

Get up-close with Dave as he examines UFO thrillseekers and Elvis-worshipers, plays lead guitar with a horrifying rock band that includes Stephen King, and swears to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth...so God help you!

I could not stop laughing for the first few chapters! Hilarious!! Some chapters are definately no child friendly, but at least get the free sample; first chapter was ridiculously funny.

Typically Dave Barry: Moments of seriousness mixed with a healthy dose of laugh-out-loud humor. Dave is the master of turning everyday activities into laughter. I think I have now read all of his works and I await his next effort.
