Laugh Out Loud Funny & Sometimes Deep - Recommended

"Let's Pave the Stupid Rainforests & Give School Teachers Stun Guns: And Other Ways to Save America" turned up on my bookshelf, and I really don't know who brought into my house. That being said, I'm very glad they did as this is one of the funniest political satire books I have ever read. Ed Anger takes a look at the problems facing the country (from a 1996 point of view) and provides "unique" solutions that are often quite creative and oddly disturbing all at the same time. The title is giveaway to where this book leans, but there are shots taken at just about everyone, including Space Aliens. This is political humor from over 10 years ago, yet it still resonates in today. Recommended!

It all takes me back...

to an age when America was good; The Weekly World News was still on the newstand racks and two-thirds of my diet was made using transfats. However, one man (Ed Anger) was prophetic to the ill winds that were coming just around the corner. A lot of people could, and do, become docile in times of peace and prosperity. Ed Anger always knew that our relative peace was being undermined, be it by hippies, stupid students in stupid schools, liberals, and French Restaurants. If only more people were as in touch with the pulse of America. If only there were a few more resolute people watching out for us, telling us how it is, and not being afraid of being blunt and pig-biting angry... maybe then The Weekly World News would still be around. Maybe Hillary Clinton would've won the election with the aide of here extraterrestrial lover P'Lod. Who knows? We can only speculate. Will Anger's columns be studied like the eeriely accurate prophecies of H.G. Wells and Edgar Casey? Will they be viewed as political texts alongside "The Prince" and the various works of John Locke? I can only hope that yes, yes they will.


A timeless volume of America's finest editorialist's collected prose. I cherish my autographed copy (won through a WWN contest). Ed pulls no punches. And I mean none. Overcrowded prisons? Ed's solution is electrified bleachers. Namby pamby pantywaist liberals from Washington telling you what to do? Ed's solution involves chains and shotguns. Whiners and crybabies over the current injury dejour? Ed heads up the "ironic punishment" department for both Heaven and Hell. Railroad gothic hot type editorial prose. Ed is no Ring Lardner, nor Ambrose Bierce, but his direct style and strained homespun metaphors will warm the cockles of your heart long after you put this down.

We're chicken-biting happy!

This is another boonie dog book review by Wolfie and Kansas. We are chicken-biting happy about "Let's Pave the Stupid Rainforests & Give School Teachers Stun Guns", a collection of essays by Ed Anger. Anger is a columnist for the Weekly World News, a newpaper that is a favorite of puppies everywhere.Anger addresses many issues of importance to canines. On the issue of dog intelligence, he wisely concludes, "The more tricks a dog will do, the stupider he is." Under this theory, we boonie dogs are geniuses! Anger also recommends that Socks Clinton be defanged and declawed. In a courageous editiorial, Anger suggest testing veterinary medicines on humans rather than testing human medicines on dogs.Occasiionally Anger misfires, as when he asserts that a certain noncanine actress of primate derivation has an IQ slightly higher than a dog. Perhaps such lapses are only satirical. On the whole Anger is one of the most canine-sensitive columnists writing today.

read it and laugh

Ed shoots in all directions, at everyone, at once. Not to be confused with humorless lightweights like Rush Lumbago, Ed Anger's commentary is the funniest stuff I have read in years. Read the book closely enough and you are sure to find yourself mocked and castigated by Mr. Anger. Therefore, the book is NOT recommended for those lacking in the ability to laugh at oneself. I particularly recommend his proposal for a special Women's Driver's License (though I hardly agree with him)
