It’s finally here — the book that Uncle John’s fans have been asking for: a full-color, illustrated edition featuring the most entertaining articles from the world’s bestselling bathroom trivia series! Hundreds of eye-popping photographs add a new dimension to Uncle John’s unique blend of trivia, humor, origin stories, history, science, and oddities. All the reader favorites are here — including dumb crooks, weird news, flubbed headlines, strange lawsuits, quirky quotations, and more. Now they pop off the pages like never before! Readers can stimulate their visual cortexes as they read about weird beauty pageants, 40 odd uses for WD-40, “Bagpiper’s Fungus” and other bizarre diseases, the wild world of weird sports, the “putrified forest” at Tennessee’s Body Farm, world records that are so risky Guinnesswon’t even report them, the all-time dumbest business decisions, how to cook with roadkill, what happened to Nikola Tesla’s death ray, and real-life superheroes.
I have been a fan of Uncle John’s Bathroom Readers ever since my sister got me hooked on them years ago. They are fun and full of useful (and maybe a bit of useless) information. This classy hardbound giftable version is something you would want on the coffee table and not stashed in the bathroom where something could happen to it. You will find it full of interesting items that contains a cross section of lists and strange stories. If you are looking for a perfect gift for that person you never know what to buy for, this is it!
