This volume—Uncle Johns Bathroom Reader Wonderful World of Odd
—exposes the best of the weirdest news, facts, and fun from all over the world. Since 1987, the Bathroom Readers Institute has led the movement to stand up for those who sit down and read in the bathroom (and everywhere else for that matter). With more than 11 million books in print, the Uncle Johns Bathroom Reader
series is the longest-running, most popular series of its kind in the world.
Where else could you learn about a woman who broke her legs flying a pig, a student who got credit for dressing like a lobster, and a man who patented a method for determining the sex of a spinach plant? Uncle John rules the world of bizarre information and humor, so get ready to be thoroughly entertained. Read all about…
The worlds longest ear hair
A girl raised by dogs
Celebrity death conspiracies
Goblins, the horny horse man, Yowie, and other strange creatures
And much more!
This collection of slap shots, high sticks, and toothless grins offers fans everything they love about hockey: its colorful history, legendary players, and enough hard-hitting trivia to occupy even the most avid stat head. The latest title in the new Uncle John's series dedicated to the wide (and weird!) world of sports, "Uncle John's Bathroom Reader Shoots and Scores" shares the origins of the "Coolest Game on Earth," the greatest teams in hockey history, the best (and worst) hockey movies of all time, the Incredible Exploding Zamboni (and those who lived to tell the tale), a rap sheet of hockey arrests, goalies' superstitions (Patrick Roy's conversations with goal posts; Glenn Hall's pre-game gastric cleansing), and much, much more.
If the worlds longest ear hair, a woman whose legs were broken by a flying pig, a college student who got credit for dressing like a lobster and living in a box for three months, and a man who patented a method for determining the sex of spinach plants all ended up in the same place, what would the result be? Why, another edition of the Bathroom Reader, of course! The series latest entry is another riotous collection of bizarre news, facts, and fun from all over the world.
