Sponging: A Guide to Living Off Those You Love
Dune Road Books, Sep 1, 1994 - American wit and humor - 112 pages
SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE! In a deal worth $350,000, Carousel Entertainment ("Jade") has purchased the movie rights to SPONGING & is negotiating with Keanu Reeves to star in this "Day In The Life Of..." movie (think "Ferris Bueller's Day Off"). LOCK YOUR REFRIGERATORS & HOLD ONTO YOUR REMOTE CONTROLS, here comes SPONGING: A GUIDE TO LIVING OFF THOSE YOU LOVE. The motto is "maximize output/minimize input" in this catchy, hilarious, tongue-in-cheek look at the day in the life of a Sponger (defined as one who lives off the hospitalities of others--especially parents & friends). "If you've ever raided a refrigerator or had yours raided this book will make you laugh."--ROLLING STONE. Awarded the "Most Ungrateful Dedication of the Week" by ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY, SPONGING is quickly becoming notorious within the very broad Sponger demographic (male & female, all ages). Spongers are redefining the American Dream--they want to have their cake & eat it too...& then find someone else to do the dishes. But it's hard to hate a Sponger -- just ask all the parents, siblings, friends, husbands & wives who put up with the Spongers in their lives. They're lovable & harmless. And this book is very funny. Dune Road Books, 40 Park Ave., Venice, CA 90291. 800-804-DUNE. Wholesalers: Ingram, Koen, Pacific Pipeline & Baker & Taylor.
