We're expecting (a) a wave of lawsuits from Faithful Listeners who tune in to tonight's "The Book, With Earl Merkel" seeking cleaning-bill reimbursement from wetting their shorts laughing...
...and (b) a sponsorship contract from the Depends folks.
To qualify for a class-action suit re: (a), you'll have to prove that you were, in fact, listening to Da Show. To get a free coupon from (b), just e-mail us.
BREAKING NEWS: Tonight's "The Book, With Earl Merkel" has just received several additional works-of-genius "audio essay" submissions-- and we've torn apart our carefully stitched needle-work'd Tapestry O' Talent to wedge 'em into this evening's show!
Yes, we'll still feature a classic conversation with... Patrick J. Buchanan!-- certainly NOT in his usual role as political pundit, but in his acknowledged expertise as a historian in his groundbreaking book, "Churchill, Hitler And The Unnecessary War: How Britain Lost Its Empire... And The West Lost The World."
As usual, Pat is puckishly funny, cheerfully combative... and ready with a cornucopia of documented references to back his own chronicle of a turning point that still colors the world we live in today. It's a laugh-a-minute interview --and surprisingly informative one, too-- with a man you love-or-hate... but an interview-fest we're sure you will enjoy, either way.
"The Book" will also present our "Welcome To Al Jazeera" as the network debuts on American cable, in an arguably hilarious spoof of the "Al Jazz News You Can Expect."
Literary agent Elizabeth Kracht contributes an "audio essay" suitably titled "How To Seduce An Agent"... so, you may ask, THIS
is what agents talk about? It is, indeed--and you'll be floor-rolling laughing at her Tale Of Submission(s).
All this and MORE, plus our regular "'Over The Transom' By Rich Le Cropane, and the Continuing Exploits Of Nobel Prize Winning Physicist/Revenge-Seeking Doctor Stephen...
...and now, with the last-minute addition of yet another rib-cracking (yet stingingly astringent) contribution from the acidic pen of "Bitter Ben Gardner"! Like the columns Ben writes on his madly popular "Bitter Ben's Blog," it's definitely... uh... honeycombed... with Ben's unique brand of humor!
