The Dog Dialed 911: A Book of Lists from the Smoking Gun Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The most hilarious and outrageous true stories collected in 10 years (almost) of the world's funniest investigative reporting.
Proof that truth really is stranger than fiction! This wildly entertaining book features excerpts from a wide array of public documents--court transcripts, FBI files, contract riders, morgue and police reports, etc.--that hilariously illuminate some of the most important, scandalous, or bizarre news stories to make headlines in recent years.
Wittily and ingeniously organized as a book of lists, THE DOG DIALED 911 reveals, among many other things:
7 things you should never tell a cop
3 ineffective ways to kill your spouse
5 dumb things to steal
2 tales of terrifying toilets
4 of Bill O'Reilly's favorite pick-up lines
3 gay wedding registries
5 of the most embarrassing Bush family arrests
6 really bad bosses
4 reasons why man is not a dog's best friend
The brilliant creators of the highly popular Web site TheSmokingGun.com have combed their archives to produce a book that will make readers laugh, and laugh again, on virtually every page.
• THE DOG DIALED 911 rivals the best of the Onion and Darwin Awards collections, and is sure to be embraced by readers who propelled those books into long-term bestsellerdom.
• Not only did the Smoking Gun shatter James Frey's literary career into a million little pieces, but TSG consistently makes headlines with its revelations about celebrities and political leaders behaving badly.
