Library Journal Review

``Have you ever considered writing something serious?'' People ask this of Blount all the time, but he says, after thinking it over, ``Nah.'' Along with a quick flip through this book, that should give you an idea that Blount is delivering more of what he is so justly famous for: humor, humor, and more humor. Not only does he explain the title of the book, he also holds forth on a variety of current events and social topics: free speech, the Gulf, Atlantic City junkets, and aerobic guilt, to name a few. He also has a way with words, deftly spelling out, in various places, the sounds some of our four-footed friends make: ``aooo, aooo'' (dog), ``eeeurghgr'gl'gl'gblglglglghg'blegh'' (camel). Or sounds humans make: ``scrarglesgggrklblnk glgnk'' (rummaging through a toolbox). Also included: 12 crosswords Blount did for Spy magazine.
