I love watching the Scripps Spelling Bee ... but the hardest thing to spell is most of the kid's names. WTF. (3 weeks ago)

  • “So, if you enjoy David Sedaris, Tina Fey or movies like The Hangover (parts 1 and 2), Bridesmaids, or even Your Highness, it is quite likely that you’ll enjoy Lance Manion’s collection.”

  • “If I have one complaint about the new book from Lance Manion it’s that Merciful Flush pretends to be a book of bathroom humor instead of reveling in what it might be… the most interesting collection of short stories I’ve ever read.”

  • An easy and compulsive read, Merciful Flush by Lance Manion is a blogging success story and definitely worth picking up for any travel reading. Very very very very imaginative, I can’t believe what is now in my mind that wasn’t there before.  Rating: ★★★★☆.”

    *   Words have always been a problem. This need to fill a conversation the same way you’d overstuff a piece of luggage for a short trip.

    *   All I know is I like the image of a man sitting in a grocery store cradling a bottle of detergent.
