Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

McSweeney's columnist Kent Woodyard brings new life to the mnemonic memory devices of a bygone era, from creative reinterpretations of classic mnemonics to original creations of dubious usage. Paired with whimsical illustrations, this book is the perfect gift for the word wizards of the world, as well as collectors of useless pop-culture trivia.

Kent Woodyard has been a columnist for McSweeney's Internet Tendency since 2009. He has also written for Relevant Magazine, The Big Jewel, and Yankee Pot Roast. Originally from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Kent now lives in Southern California. This is his first book.

Synopsis:

From the popular McSweeneys column, a witty look at mnemonics for everything you never wanted to remember.
