Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With his best-selling track record, Gregory is one of AMP’s most successful non-cartoon humorists. Stupid American History was #12 on the New York Times paperback best-seller list in July 2009.

From absurd 911 calls to presidential philosophizing and foolish felons, Leland Gregory generates the best laughs by exposing the worst of human nature. Collectively, his humor collections have sold more than 500,000 copies and generated two New York Times best-sellers. Inside S Is for Stupid, Gregory sets his sights on the stupidest of stupid with a "best-of" collection featuring 50 percent new material and 50 percent fan favorites.

As Gregory's largest collection yet, S Is for Stupid features more than 350 pages of outrageous stories, trivia, and factoids organized alphabetically by topic. Such entries include:

* The following is a doctor's actual diagnostic notation: The patient is married but sexually active.

* "Shooting Reported at Firing Range" --the State, Columbia, South Carolina, August 4, 2006

* Arrested for public urination in Bowling Green, Ohio: Mr. Joshua Pees. --the Sentinel-Tribune, Bowling Green, Ohio, September 5, 2001

Because the stories Gregory chronicles are just that unbelievable, each anecdote, quote, or factoid is presented with relevant background information, including its verified news source.

Synopsis:

Leland Gregory's seventeen previous humor collections with AMP are all in print and all are staples on the humor backlist, including Stupid American History, which was a New York Times best-seller, and Stupid History, which has shipped over 130,000 copies. Silly, shocking, weird, and hilariously funny, the one or two paragraph anecdotes that comprise Gregory's new anthology of human stupidity are culled from print, online, and broadcast media from all over the world. This is his biggest, fattest collection yet, with stories, trivia, and factoids that is the best of content from previous stupid books plus 50% completely new and unpublished material. Organized encyclopedically by alphabetical categories.
