Why is our lucky 13th edition All-Purpose? Uncle John himself explains: “You can read this Bathroom Reader anywhere—in the obvious spot, in bed or, heck, by the pool or at work.” Why Extra-Strength? “Because of the mountains of research gathered, you can guess where, by our crackpot…I mean hotshot…staff.” Yes, APES (as we affectionately call it at the BRI) is filled to the rim with more than 500 pages of amazing facts, quotes, history, myths, brain teasers, origins, celebrity gossip, and our powerful brand of “uncanny” humor. Here are 13 reasons to read this book:
1. Triskaidekaphobia, the fear of ten plus three 2. Military surplus: The story of carrot cake 3. The real-life inspiration behind Dracula 4. Going Ape: The history of Tarzan 5. People who married themselves 6. Politically incorrect toothpaste 7. Legendary business blunders 8. Hollywood’s biggest bombs 9. Wide world of weird sports 10. Dog food for thought 11. The birth of the CD 12. Dumb criminals 13. Zappa’s Law And much, much more!
The Bathroom Readers' Institute is a tight-knit group of loyal and skilled writers, researchers, and editors who have been working as a team for years. The BRI understands the habits of a very special market—Throne Sitters—and devotes itself to providing amazing facts and conversation pieces.
