Crown Publishers, 2003 - Humor - 243 pages
"The New York Times calls him "the funniest man in America." In Boogers Are My Beat, Dave gives us the real scoop on: the scientific search for the world's funniest joke (you can bet it includes the word "weasel"); RV camping in the Wal-Mart parking lot; outwitting "smart" kitchen appliances and service contracts; elections in Florida ("You can't spell Florida without 'duh'"); the Olympics, where people from all over the world come together to accuse each other of cheating; the truth about the Dakotas, the Lone Ranger and feng shui; and the choice between death and taxes. And much, much more - including some truths about journalism and serious thoughts about 9/11."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
