I always enjoy Benjamin Franklin's sense of humor and satire. ( )

  Sullywriter | Apr 3, 2013 |
We all know Mr Franklin as a political theorist, scientist, scholar, inventor, and newspaper man. Yet in a hybrid of his political prowess and newspaper publisher, he scribed some highly effective satire.

This book is a collection of editorials, "letters to the editor", and entries from his immensely popular Poor Richard's Almanack. While the majority of essays are timeless, and remain understandable centuries later, several will only be appreciated by those with intimate understanding of events during Colonial and Revolutionary times. This book provides a different, if not better, look into his ideals than his autobiography.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 089804801X, Paperback)

Everyone knows Benjamin Franklin was one of the great philosophers of his time. But there was a side to him you were not exposed to in school--a bawdy, scurrilous side that was all too eager to ignite the fires of controversy. From time to time, he would put some of his satirical ideas down on paper. Fart Proudly is a testament to the rogue that lived inside the philosopher and statesman.
