Few funny bits but mostly just okay. Refreshing but far from life-changing.

Goodreads winner. ( )

In the old Warner Brother's cartoons every once in a while Bugs or Daffy or even Elmer would be padding through the woods and they would come upon a creaky old wooden sign, just boards nailed together on a post, leaning crazily over, saying things like "STOP!" "Go Back" " Go Away" or even "I'd turn back if I were you".

So here I am planting a sign. Tasteful Nudes is a very bad book of very bad "comic" writing by one of those very bad people who always seem to be hanging around basic cable sketch comedy shows.

His set piece is - wait for it - he goes among a group of nudists and giggles and smirks because - guess what - they aren't wearing any clothing!. I'm shocked! Shocked I tell you.

It was recommended to me by a friend and I have cut that friends acquaintance. In fact I have sent said friend a printed change of address card announcing my intention to move to Washington State and join an order of Trappists.

(Would you like an order of Trappists? Honey Mustard or BBQ Sauce on them?)

You have been warned. Don't come crying to me if you actually read it.

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"Dave Hill is like any other guy just trying to make it through life. He has accidentally arranged a lunch with a high-end prostitute, he's become an unwitting accomplice to the theft of three hundred pounds of meat, and he's lost his innocence to a Japanese toilet. Average, run-of-the-mill stuff. His collection of mind-blowing (and mildly superlative) essays recollect real life experiences of a grown man who hasn't borrowed money from any of his family members in a seriously long time. Nearly every page is packed with red-hot action, startling emotion and borderline futuristic insights all delivered in scorching and largely grammatically correct verse. Dave Hill wrote this book mainly to make people laugh. Let's face it, Dave Hill wrote this book mainly to make people laugh and maybe touch a few hearts. And if it ends up leading to sex for him, well that's just a bonus"--… (more)
