I plopped down on the couch to finish it and came across this, from Ed Helms, aka, Andy Bernard:
Dear Ed: I really, really want to be famous, but I don't have any talents. Acting, literary, or otherwise. I'm not even that attractive. Now: How do I get famous? -- Christopher, St. Paul, MN.
Dear Christopher: I admire your moxie and determination! It is clear from your letter that you already possess all of the necessary requirements to become famous. In particular, I would encourage you to cultivate your lack of talent, since that has clearly worked well for numerous celebrities. In addition, fame can often be obtained through association. To wit, try hanging out in nightclubs with people who are already famous, like Lindsay Lohan or Dick Cheney. Or might I suggest trouncing Rafael Nadal in the finals at Wimbledon. However you go about it, I wish you good luck and godspeed in your worthy and noble quest! -- Ed.
Highly recommend the book for shits and giggles if for no other reason than this gem from Samantha Bee:
"Your Lady Flower is a gift to be shared with anyone who asks. Or shouts at you. Especially if they keep shouting at you. That's really macho."
Love me some S. Bee. Stop knocking her up, Jason!
**Ok, yes, that's a link to Amazon. But I'm a big proponent of local independent bookstores so to clear my conscience let me say this: Try and find the book in your local bookstore or library. If you can't, then yeah, buy it off Amazon. Support your local businesses. [/soapbox]
