Did you know that a World War II British spy manual recommended sneaking into German brothels to put itching powder in German prophylactics? How about that Elvis offered to help President Nixon track down communists and drug abusers? All manner of valuable and worthless news-- brought to you in the witty, smarty-pants style of National Public Radio's popular weekly news quiz show-- lies between these pages, waiting for you to take it to the beach, on a road trip, to the bathroom so you can roar with friends or privately.

You really need to know this stuff.... You really do.
