Proof that fake news has been with us for a long time.

The Great Moon Hoax began on this day, in 1835. Published in six parts by the newspaper, The Sun, the articles claimed that a civilization had been discovered–living on the Moon.

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.

A bunch of idiots destroyed records, damaged a baseball field, and forced the White Sox into forfeiting a game–all because they didn’t like a particular style of music. Proof that stupidity has always been with us.
