(And, no, I don’t mean the Bible.)
Luke McKinney at Cracked.com has a list of five books that can make you stupid. Here’s what he includes, with some brief excerpts from his post. This is so funny, I don’t think I need to add anything. Enjoy!
Reading brings to mind wisdom, the exchange of ideas and quiet contemplation. It does not bring to mind people who need help putting their pants on. These books change all of that.
- 5. Winning Lotto/Lottery for Everyday Players, 3rd edition
- 4. How to Solve Sudoku: A Step-by-Step Guide (52 Brilliant Ideas)
- 3. More Joy … : An Advanced Guide to Solo Sex
- 2. Supercharging Quantum-Touch
- 1. Much Ado About Nothing: The Restored Klingon Text
“This book contains enough compressed stupidity to erase all science as far back as the middle ages.”
“Based on title alone, it’s pretty clear that the author personally infiltrated the invisible floating MENSA fortress and wrestled secret Sudoku strategies out of the cold hands of dead Nobel Prize winner.”
“There are millions of masturbation manuals in the world, but most of them consist of pictures of girls (or guys) and a tactful understanding that the reader will just get on with it. Not many men are confident enough to interrupt another male mid-stroke with a stern cry of ‘You’re doing it wrong!’ let alone offer them instruction.”
“The book jacket is lined with gushing testimonials from those who have been Quantumly touched, about how much supercharging things enhanced their incredibly gullible lives.”
“Since the ‘fictional language’ and ‘classical literature’ markets don’t actually overlap, this book is proof that a small but very profitable core of fans will buy absolutely anything connected to their chosen obsession.”
Hat tip to Hemant.
