Mr. Hoppy: ". . .' Flesh fade, and mortal trash Fáll to the resíduary worm; ' world’s wildfire, leave but ash: In a flash, at a trumpet crash, I am all at once what Christ is, ' since he was what I am, and Thís Jack, jóke, poor pótsherd, ' patch, matchwood, immortal diamond, Is immortal diamond." Mr. Snarky: "No, YOU'RE the dummy."

From the looks of things, this book is probably mean, personal and will ruin any conversation I mention it in. We were doing so well before he came along.

Oh, and while we are on the subject, if you "book wizards" at Powells ( I use that term loosely) are even a fraction as quick deciding this contest as you have been with the OED giveaway, I'll need the large print edition.

By your SOLE estimation? Who died and made you the King of Snark? Just because you throw a few jokes around on a blog, you are the "authority" of all things snarky? Please. Oh, if only we could ALL be as witty as Brockman!

Dear Hon. Brockman, Thank you for explaining how to win this book. We would be much obliged if you would now tell us the best way to *avoid* winning this book.
