Free Humor eBook – The Little Things DO Suck!

Posted in amazon, books, comedy, ebook, funny, kindle, laughter, life, people, Uncategorized, Words, writing with tags , , , , , , , , , on 08/09/2017 by Edward Brock

Since we all could use a little humor in our lives, I’m making my book–The Little Things DO Suck!–free for the Kindle (through Sunday, Aug. 13).

We have a lot of big problems to deal with these days. This book is a collection of everyday, petty, ultimately unimportant, but very annoying little things we all deal with–bad drivers, wrong orders, rude people, product failures, family arguments, general ignorance, and disappointment.

It’s a great read to lose yourself in while you’re sitting on the toilet, waiting waaay to long at the doctor’s office, or stuck in the airport. You’ll see we are all affected by–or guilty of–the same annoying things.

On this day, in 1983, one of the greatest TV series of all-time ended its 11 year run.

The M*A*S*H finale was seen by 125 million viewers–the most of any U.S. TV show.

WhaHuh? – The Great Balloon Hoax

On April 13, 1844, New York’s The Sun added an extra page to their paper. The page claimed that a popular balloonist, named Monck Mason, had flown across the Atlantic Ocean in just 74 hours–a historical first.

Named Victoria, the balloon had departed from England and was headed for Paris, when one of the propellers malfunctioned. The balloon drifted off course–and ended up in South Carolina. Word quickly spread and readers were excited to get a copy of the paper for themselves. They even showed up to the newspaper’s office to get copies. 

But, unknown to the enthusiastic crowd, the story was actually a hoax–perpetrated by Edgar Allan Poe. The hoax was revealed two days later but, by then, The Sun had already made quite a bit of money.

Poe later wrote that, “I never witnessed more intense excitement to get possession of a newspaper.” He seemed surprised that people were so easily manipulated by false news. He even stood on The Sun’s steps to inform the crowd that the story was a hoax. But, most of the readers ignored him while they were snatching up copies of the paper.
