Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It¿s not feelings of superiority that make us suspect the universe is filled with dumb people: The universe really is filled with dumb people, as it¿s easy to see in the pages of Leland Gregory¿s sharp new offering, Hey Idiot!Gregory, a former Saturday Night Live writer, is the smart cookie who¿s previously showed us gray matter¿challenged examples in everything from the criminal world to the hallowed halls of government. This time, though, everyone, everywhere is fair game if they¿ve exhibited outrageously stupid behavior.Consider: The forgetful fireman who left cooking oil on the stove and returned from a call to find the station house burned to the ground.A lung cancer patient who caused an explosion when he lit up a cigarette¿in his oxygen tent.A 58-year-old billiards player who was suspended from competition after testing positive for a muscle-building hormone.F. Edward Hebert, chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, who said, ¿The only way we¿ll get a volunteer army is to draft them.¿Hey Idiot! lets everyone from bosses to public officials, doctors to sports heroes, skewer themselves with their moronic words and action. Readers¿and there are loads of them who can¿t turn away from ¿America¿s funniest and dumbest¿ TV shows¿will howl with laughter at the more than 200 examples of boneheadedness and buffoonery. Potential readers are also guaranteed to hear about Hey Idiot! since the only thing Gregory does better than tracking nitwits and nincompoops is to appear on high-profile programs such as the Today show, Inside Edition, and on MSNBC to plug his highly readable books. Wise up and don¿t miss Hey Idiot! Stupid sells.

Synopsis:

In Leland Gregory's sharp new offering, everyone is fair game if they've exhibited outrageously stupid behavior, such as the forgetful fireman who left cooking oil on the stove and returned from a call to find the station house had burned to the ground.

About the Author

Leland Gregory coauthored the New York Times best-seller America¿s Dumbest Criminals. He¿s also written Great Government Goofs, Presumed Ignorant, and Presidential Indiscretions. AMP buyers will also remember this indefatigable promoter¿s strong sellers What¿s the Number for 911?; What¿s the Number for 911, Again?; and The Stupid Crook Book. Leland has long proven to be one of the best-selling non-cartoon humorists on our list, a track record we feel certain he¿ll maintain with Hey Idiot!
