1,001 Facts that Will Scare the S#*t Out of You: The Ultimate Bathroom Reader
By Cary McNeal
Fact: Ithyphallophobia is the fear of seeing, thinking about or having an erect penis.
Fact: You are more likely to be killed by a donkey than an airplane crash.
This is a hilarious collection of little-known facts about the world that are weird, creepy, disgusting and sure to frighten the bejeezus out of anyone. This ultimate bathroom book will enlighten you to a variety of troubling truths about everything from the secret ingredient found in bottled water to what your brother was doing just before you shook his hand, from a fish that wants to swim up your genitals to how a simple airplane flight can blow out your rectum. Educational, entertaining and horrifying, this book isn't guaranteed to help you go to the bathroom, but it's certain to make your time there more enjoyable.
My 2 Cents
I’m a bit of a geek hence, naturally, I picked this book up immediately as saw it. In my defense, I actually like to read these kind of books, so expect a few of this sort of reviews pop out here and there in this blog.
So… This is quite a fun book to read. The cover itself is eye catching with the “FACT” it presented the readers with. Some of which could make you have goose bumps. It ranged facts from the subject of food, drink, the human body, the weather and insects. *shudders* Oh yes… you would shudder too after reading some of those insects facts. What’s appealing is the fact that every fact is accompanied with a humorous remark by the author – which is sarcastic but serious. (I can’t keep a straight face.)
This would be a fun book for those reluctant readers if they are into those “icky” stuff. Though expect laughter when they pick this up for a read.
