Uncle John's All-Purpose Extra Strength Bathroom Reader (Bathroom Readers) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The number 13 is lucky for the thousands of bathroom readers eagerly awaiting Uncle John's latest lighthearted collection of facts, quotes, history, science, word origins, pop culture, gossip, and "uncanny" humor. As always, the entries are organized by length to accommodate short, medium, and long visits, and the book features the popular "Extended Sitting Section" for a leg-numbing experience. Footers running on every page comprise a book-within-a-book of weird facts.

Synopsis:

Why is our lucky 13th edition All-Purpose? Uncle John himself explains: “You can read this Bathroom Reader anywhere—in the obvious spot, in bed or, heck, by the pool or at work.” Why Extra-Strength? “Because of the mountains of research gathered, you can guess where, by our crackpot…I mean hotshot…staff.” Yes, APES (as we affectionately call it at the BRI) is filled to the rim with more than 500 pages of amazing facts, quotes, history, myths, brain teasers, origins, celebrity gossip, and our powerful brand of “uncanny” humor. Here are 13 reasons to read this book:

  1. Triskaidekaphobia, the fear of ten plus three

  2. Military surplus: The story of carrot cake

  3. The real-life inspiration behind Dracula

  4. Going Ape: The history of Tarzan

  5. People who married themselves

  6. Politically incorrect toothpaste

  7. Legendary business blunders

  8. Hollywoods biggest bombs

  9. Wide world of weird sports

  10. Dog food for thought

  11. The birth of the CD

  12. Dumb criminals

  13. Zappas Law

And much, much more!
