Summary

Tupperware ladies, eighties people, and leisure concept salesmen beware: Dave Barry is on the loose and no one is safe! In this collection of eighty essays, the inimitable columnist observes everything that makes America the unique, special place you've grown to love: taxes, toilets, airbags, baseball, beer commercials, and numerous other American artifacts. 

With his beloved brand of zany humor, Barry covers it all, from lauding the little-appreciated characteristics of yeast to the pleasures and pitfalls of adulting, and provides a report on his rock band, "The Urban Professionals.” He writes of our inability to forget the most embarrassing moments of our past, the anguish of teaching his son to fish, dealing with the irrational elements in some religions, the differences between men and women in both playing and observing sports and sounds off on all the things that make life as we know it both ridiculous and sublime.
