Fun Fact: They say that "The only person who never makes a mistake, is the person who never does anything."David Simmons should get a great deal done, because he makes a lot of mistakes: His career. His marriage. A brief, but unwavering, conviction that he would look young and cool in skinny jeans (spoiler alert - he did not). It's important to be consistent, so when he finds a weathered old bottle during an ill-conceived beach walk, of course he's going to make the wrong choice to open it.Now he has a thousand (give or take) year old genie named Duke who needs David to hurry up so he can hit the waves.David has three wishes, an impatient supernatural surfer and a lifetime of blunders under his belt, but what type of high end, top shelf, cluster-cuddle of a mistake do you need to make to be locked away in a four by four cell in an orange jumpsuit?Well, it's funny you should ask, because I can tell you, it takes more than just one.Funny you should ask is the new collection of humorous (and surprisingly philosophical) short stories by Elwood Scott. Author of The Stowaway.
An entertaining collection of humorous short stories.

Il vit à Londres, au 221 B Baker Street à la fin du dix-neuvième siècle. Il a des idées un peu bizarres... Il se passionne pour certaines branches de la science. Il est assez calé en anatomie, est un chimiste de premier ordre qui, malgré des études très décousues et excentriques, a amassé un tas de connaissances peu ordinaires.

Il a un métier : dénouer des énigmes étranges auxquelles il est le seul à pouvoir apporter une solution. Il a un défaut : il affectionne les drogues. Il a un ami : le docteur Watson, témoin et narrateur de ses aventures. Son créateur, Arthur Conan Doyle, a inventé le récit policier moderne. Il s'appelle Sherlock Holmes.

Here is the antidote: a dazzling survey of the funniest remarks, quips and observations from Ancient Rome, the Bible and Chaucer right up to The Simpsons and The Office. More than 5,000 of the very funniest remarks to have appeared on paper since, well, paper was invented. The lines we all wish we could have said are arranged thematically and cover all aspects of life: from the world we inhabit to the things we eat, smoke and drink; from the way we move around to what and how we learn oh, and the pointlessness of football. Within each theme, the quotationsare placed chronologically providing a real sense of the development of thoughts about each subject as well as seeing how jokes evolve over the years and, in some cases, who borrowed from whom."--Publisher's website.
