Uncle John's Bathroom Reader Zipper Accidents

Published by Portable Press

From the world leader in wacky news and amusing true stories comes a book chock full of cringe-inducing (but hilarious) moments of failure.

For 25 years, there’s always been a home in Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader for those times in life you wish you could take back--“oops” moments, embarrassing accidents, spectacular failures. Because we never get tired of reading about unfortunate accidents (as long as they’re happening to someone else), here is a whole book of “the best of the worst,” the troubling and funny stories of things got terribly awry.


Read all about:
* The little math error that took down a spaceship.

* A sexy stimulant that led to a man’s multiple amputations.

* The politician who lost by one vote . . . because he was out campaigning and forgot to vote.

* The couple that won millions in the lottery . . . and lost the ticket.


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.
