About the Author


Thomas J. Craughwell is an author and problem solver. He traced the evolution of Manhattan urban legends (Alligators in the Sewer); sorted out fact from fiction in old wives tales (Do Blue Bedsheets Bring Babies?); identified the patron saints of bloggers, vegetarians and hangovers (This Saint Will Change Your Life); and resurrected a long-forgotten story from 1876, when a gang of hapless Irish immigrant counterfeiters tried to kidnap the body of Abraham Lincoln--and almost got away with it (Stealing Lincoln's Body). Tom lives in Bethel, Connecticut.

This book was hard to put down! I started questioning whether or not it was all true and the section on revenge really made me want to do some...This book was hilarious, disgusting, scary, and fabulous!

This book had made me laugh so hard that i started to cry, get shvers down the back of my neck, and say 'Oh my god this horrable'.Yet it had gaven me this sense that the author had been actually making a charactor inside my mind reading the story to me. So anybody, that loves, disgusting stories almost so gross that they could make you blow chunch or gag or make you have night mares, or if you like stories that would make you laugh so hard that you pee your pants and start crying so hard that you look like you've gotten the wind beat out of you , or that after you read some of it and then you tell your freinds that after awhile they get annoyed that they seem really mean? Well then this is the book for you!
