Awarded Best Humor Columnist of 1996 by the National Society of Newspaper Columnists, P. S. Wall has tossed the nation on its funny bone with her nationally syndicated column "Off the Wall." Combining the irreverence of Dave Barry and the sass of Molly Ivins, P. S. Wall is as irresistible as that last piece of candy (but much better for you). From marriage to parenthood, from middle-age spread to what women really want, this hilarious collection takes it all on. Now, a few laughs compliments of P. S. Wall:
MEN: "Men are like food. When your girlfriend is dating a dip, it's up to you to tell her to lick those fingers clean and eat her peas and carrots like the rest of us."
WEIGHT: "A few years ago, I thought 'Fat Gram' was a rap singer. I drank whole milk like a kitten, didn't think twice about slathering mayo on a toasted cheese sandwich, and still had a stomach you could bounce a quarter on. Nowadays, I can't walk past the dairy section without my thighs curdling like cottage cheese."
MOTHERHOOD: "Whenever I start getting that maternal yearning, I borrow my nephew. After about two hours, I'm fully prepared to donate all my female organs to science."
