Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ponder, if you will ...
Has anyone ever seen a live Cornish game hen?
Why do quarterbacks say "Hut"?
Why do "sea" gulls congregate in parking
lots of shopping centers?
What does the "Q" in Q-Tips stand for?

Pop culture guru David Feldman demystifies these questions and much more in Are Lobsters Ambidextrous? Part of the Imponderables® series—the unchallenged source of answers to civilization's everyday mysteries—and charmingly illustrated by Kassie Schwan, this book provides you with information that encyclopedias, dictionaries, and almanacs just don't have. And think about it, where else are you going to find out what happens to the caffeine left over from making decaffeinated coffee?

Book News Annotation:

In this reprint of the 1993 volume in the Imponderables series originally titled When Did Wild Poodles Roam the Earth?, a pop culture analyst answers questions about those irksome little mysteries of life. E.g., Feldman mines expert opinion to explain why there are no purple Christmas lights or English muffins in England. Readers comment on previous answers in the series.
