"Who can really judge what's funny? If humor is a subjective medium, then can there be something that is really and truly hilarious? Me. This book."—Daniel Handler, author, Adverbs, and personal representative of Lemony Snicket

"The good news: I thought Our Kampf was consistently hilarious. The bad news: I’m the guy who wrote Monkeybone."—Sam Hamm, screenwriter, Batman, Batman Returns, and Homecoming

Savage Mules

As of 5 pm ET, Dennis Perrin's new book Savage Mules: The Democrats and Endless War is #8 on Amazon's political bestseller list. This is a pretty amazing performance, given that all the competition is by people with prominent media perches.

And since the book is all about mindlessly going along with the herd, this is a perfect moment to buy it.

I guess I should take this opportunity to apologise for buying it from rather than Amazon, thereby denying Dennis the stat.

Sorry, but Amazon's overseas delivery charges are ridiculous. And I'm a cheap bastard.

I tried to buy it, but my hoof keeps slipping off the mouse; perhaps I'll get my master, Farmer Jones, to buy it for me when (if) he sobers up.

Go Dennis! Party at your house, pardner.

Rob -> Really ? I used Amazon many times myself and it seemed reasonable to me then. I'm surely gonna use them again.

Also, how do you even order something on Amazon ? You're from the US/Canada ?

They do deliver internationally (Australia in this case), as do some of their associated second hand dealers. But their shipping prices are about $12 whereas Betterworld's are $3. Admittedly, Betterworld sends everything in shrinkwrap (not so good for hardbacks) but I'm not paying someone nine bucks just to chuck a book in a padded envelope or a cardboard box which isn't necessarily more protection anyway. The Strand New York are a pretty good compromise of price and packaging when they have what I want.

I'll stop now before I start to sound like viral marketing.
