Its not feelings of superiority that make us suspect the universe is filled with dumb people: The universe really is filled with dumb people, as its easy to see in the pages of Leland Gregorys sharp new offering, Hey Idiot!Gregory, a former Saturday Night Live writer, is the smart cookie whos previously showed us gray matterchallenged examples in everything from the criminal world to the hallowed halls of government. This time, though, everyone, everywhere is fair game if theyve exhibited outrageously stupid behavior.Consider: The forgetful fireman who left cooking oil on the stove and returned from a call to find the station house burned to the ground.A lung cancer patient who caused an explosion when he lit up a cigarettein his oxygen tent.A 58-year-old billiards player who was suspended from competition after testing positive for a muscle-building hormone.F. Edward Hebert, chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, who said, The only way well get a volunteer army is to draft them.Hey Idiot! lets everyone from bosses to public officials, doctors to sports heroes, skewer themselves with their moronic words and action. Readersand there are loads of them who cant turn away from Americas funniest and dumbest TV showswill howl with laughter at the more than 200 examples of boneheadedness and buffoonery. Potential readers are also guaranteed to hear about Hey Idiot! since the only thing Gregory does better than tracking nitwits and nincompoops is to appear on high-profile programs such as the Today show, Inside Edition, and on MSNBC to plug his highly readable books. Wise up and dont miss Hey Idiot! Stupid sells.
