For years wordsmith and punster Richard Lederer has charmed and delighted fans with his bestselling "Anguished English" series. In his funniest book yet, readers will again cherish the author's latest chronicle of the goofs and gaffes and fluffs and flubs of our anguished language. And the best part? Everything in here actually occurred! Nothing has been made up!
Bloopers from foreign restaurants include:
* "Our wines leave you nothing to hope for.­"
* "As for the tripe served here, you will be singing its praises to your grandchildren on your deathbed.­"
Excerpts from students' twisted history papers include:
* "World War I made the people so sad that it brought on the Great Depression.­"
* "America was founded by four fathers. Delegates from the original 13 states formed the Contented Congress. Thomas Jefferson, a Virgin, and Benjamin Franklin were two singers of the Decoration of Independence, which says that all men are cremated equal and are well endowed by their creator.­"
Hilarious illustrations by Jim Mc
