Funniest book ad of the month

... from a linguistic point of view, naturally. Found on Francis Heaney's blog:

"I am not exaggerating when I say that my book, Holy Tango of Literature, is the best book you will ever read. It's more like I'm lying than exaggerating. But it's still a pretty darn funny book, I think. Buy it, won't you?"

While you're visiting over there, check out his "six things" drawings. I'm especially fond of Green days, Why she dumped you, and Here comes the reign again. Also, Francis reports a new entry for the Fire Alarm Phrasebook: the bad news is that they have received a condition, but the good news is that the problem has been restored.
