Newspaper columnist, author, blogger, cabinetmaker, home inspector, and Certified Old Guy Stephen Elder holds forth on a wide range of topics: education in America, worries about English, rants on Congress, why young women talk funny, myth correction, and string theory. Elder calls ‘em as he sees ‘em. Written under the influence (i.e. of Mark Twain and Dave Barry with an occasional dark detour into Ambrose Bierce), there is plenty of food for thought. Though his dry wit may be an acquired taste, it is also addictive. One critic has praised Elder’s essays as “full of enlightened observations” about the past, the present, and the future. Another has maligned them as “suppurating with snarkiness, but sometimes justifiably so.” The author recommends that you show initiative. Buy a copy and judge for yourself.

The Irish Joke Book is a comprehensive set of jokes about the Irish. Brendon Kelly pokes fun at the Irish from the troubled times of the 1980s through to the Irish of today, still in global recession like the rest of us. The Irish can laugh at themselves and wont mind these, or should I say dese, jokes. Just take a few at a time. Youll laugh, groan and snicker at these sometimes harsh, sometimes crazy but always amusing Irish jokes. No-one is safe - not pilots on the Irish national airline Aer Lingus, not Guinness drinkers, nor Irish council workers. Sure theyre not safe. The Irish love a laugh, and have that inbuilt Celt good sense-of-humor, or as we text GSOH. And then theres the lurvely accent, on de ladies. And theyre good looking and the men - arent - Youll have your favorites. Then youll forget where the hell it was - dat joke. So I wrote dis handy Index at da back. Ya can test yourself by finding de words in de Index dat you remember all dere, to find de joke again. Or try and remember da joke from the line in de Index. Tanks a million ... P.S. Da sketches are of Molly Malone in Grafton Street, Dublin and the Irish milk given when ya donate a pint of blood. God bless the Irish! Brendon Kelly
