Laugh? I Thought I’d Die!

Sitting here in Boquerón listening to the 4:8 Eagles whipping the 4:8 Mami Dolphins 24 – 10 late in the 3rd quarter on a streaming radio feed via the internet I needed something to lift my spirits so I clicked in to the book section of the Huffington Post and came across a post called, The Worst Book Ever!

While the book is out of print you can still go to the Amazon site, here, and read such great reviews as that by Benjamin L. Hamilton gave the book a rave 5-star review:

After the divorce my diet consisted primarily of uncooked ramen and whiskey. Occasionally I wondered aloud if I’d ever have another home cooked meal again.

Then I discovered “Microwave for One” and everything changed.

My favorite chapters were:

Chapter 1: Plugging in your Microwave and You

Chapter 4: How to Wait 3 Minutes

Chapter 11 [BONUS CHAPTER]: Eating with Cats

In closing, I give this book 2 thumbs up (and a paw!). Thanks Sonia Allison!

Texan J. Fischer didn’t think much of it and only gave the book a single star, writing:

I expected this to have the recepies that normal people eat, like Norway Roof Rat, robin, cardinal, and other backyard birds,or even kittens and puppies but I was disapointed because it was about things that rich people buy at the store like cow meat and chickens.

Michael Pemulis gave the book a lukewarm three-star review, writing:

It used to be that I got home from work and the only thing I’d want to put in my mouth was the cold barrel of my grandfather’s shotgun. Then I discovered Sonia Allison’s Chicken Tetrazzini, and now there are two things.

All together there are 36 other reviews all of which are worth reading.

  1. What can I say? I read all 40 reviews, and laughed myself silly.

    I actually have a microwave story. When I was in Liberia, a charitable group of some sort decided to gift the hospital with a microwave. Apart from the fact that we only had a diesel-powered generator for 12 hours a day and that poor thing never could get up the oomph to make a microwave “go”, it was a lovely though.

    The pilot took it down to his hanger and used it to file papers.

    Weren’t those reviews a hoot? I’m glad I stumbled across that page.
