Well, Duh!: Our Stupid World, and Welcome to It by Bob Fenster

In a world of bumbling idiots, stupidity is a growth industry. One smart strategy is to laugh at it all with this outrageous collection of hilarious tales about the stupid things people do in every field of human activity.

Bob Fenster has combed the world of the intellectually challenged searching for more tales of stupidity to entertain us with.........and he's hit the jackpot! After the success of his first two books, Duh! and They Did What!?, Fenster has struck again with Well, Duh! Our Stupid World, and Welcome to It. More tales of the dim-witted and simpleminded are incorporated in chapters such as:

* Food for Thoughtlessness: The All-Turnip Diet and Other Loony Meals at the Mindless Cafe

* Hollyweird: Bird Brains in Tinsel Town

* Dumb Ways to Die: Buried Alive but Not for Long

* Government by the Idiots: How to Get Elected to Anything

Was a loner for a while when his clan died. He gave himself a warrior name. He is 11 moons old.

Male, light red fur, dark blue eyes. Seems nice, but has a deep hatred inside. Anything you want to know about his past, ask him

Is that you can't enlarge the text size of the eBook version -- rendering it virtually entirely illegible because it will only display in what appears to be the smallest possible text size. So the joke's on me -- the buyer -- for being stupid enough to purchase this illegible book.

I thought Well, Duh! was extremley funny, and even though if you read it over and over again, you will still laugh out loud.
