Synopses & Reviews
Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and Uncle John is back with a new compilation of Christmas past and present. Packed with as much fun stuff as an elfs Christmas stocking, this anthology includes all the legends, lore, trivia, and history Uncle John didnt have room for in the first Christmas collection. Highlights include why Figgy pudding was banned in Boston, the story of snow globes, the Christmas pickle, Bad Santas, and more!
Uncle John's Bathroom Reader is a quirky, compulsively readable, and just-plain-fun compendium for the 68 % of Americans who read in the john--and anyone with a wacky sense of humor. Offbeat trivia, riddles, weird-but-true stories. Clueless criminals, like the guy who robbed two gas stations while wearing a court-ordered monitoring device. Strange inventions: electronic underwear that measures your vital signs, calls emergency services if necessary, and is machine-washable Plus The Bare Facts, Spaced-Out Sports, and gross 18 th-century beverages, such as Cock Ale, a mixture of beer and chicken soup.
