Whimsey Department

Some funny, some whimsical, and a few downright disturbing items

From Run Down from The Reader's Advisor Online Blog by Cindy Orr
"Joe the Plumber Gets a Book Contract
Guess it was inevitable. Joe the Plumber hooked up with a writer and is “writing” a book in time for it to be published on December 1. It will be called Joe the Plumber—Fighting for the American Dream, and will be published by a group called PearlGate Publishing. Um, guess it tells you everything you need to know that they can find a writer and get the book published in two weeks or so. Joe has a lot to say.

Sarah Palin Gets a Book Contract
It’s only fair, right? Rumor has it that Sarah Palin will get approximately $7 million as an advance for a book. Has the publishing world gone mad? Will anyone buy either of these “books”? I’m not so sure about Joe, but Sarah will certainly sell some copies."
