An hysterical FULL COLOR collection of humorous essays, short stories, sketches, cartoons and general comic musings.    Using every color in the comedy palette, from cerebral to silly, this collection of hilarious short stories, essays, sketches and cartoons takes the reader on a journey through a wonderfully creative imagination. Witty, satirical, and outright funny, author William Royce doesn't shy away from the hypocrisy lurking behind nursery rhymes, the controversial crowning of The 1951 Doughnut Queen, or the myth of chicken-fried steaks.  
 
These thirty pieces range from a series of cartoons depicting the daily life of the microscopic creatures inhabiting our eye-brows (The Low Brows) to a treatment for a "classic" singing and dancing 1930's Warner Bros. cartoon ("The Hummingbird Singer") to one of the lost testaments of the Bible ("The Gospel According to St. Murray").  
 
Also included are the actual transcripts from a 1937 blues recording by "Blind" Willy McCann, a scorcher in which Willy details his desperate need to find his shoes, as well as an expose on The Dish & The Spoon in the hard-hitting segment, Where Are They Now?
