Anguished English

  1. Apr 27, 2003 #1
    I highly recommend this book, and it's sequel (More Anguished English), to anyone who likes a good laugh.

    The writer has taken a bunch of bloopers from children's and adults' school papers, or other such papers and put them together in an ingenius way. For example, there is a section about History, which takes the bloopers from many History papers (by eighth grade-college level students!) and makes them into an utterly different set of events. Here is an excerpt from that "History" section:

    There is much, much, more in this book, and I think pretty much everyone with a sense of humor will enjoy it.

    If you liked Anguished English you'd probably like the Joy of Lex. It includes everything from simple wordplay to cunning conundrums, from Malaprope to Yogi Berra.

    Thanks, I'll look for that one.
