TEASER TUESDAY: Alan McArthur | Steve Lowe | Grumpy Old Men?

This week's Teaser Tuesday;

When talking about gravity-defying face cream...


Things known to science to defy gravity: aeroplanes, missiles, space rockets. Things known to science to not, generally speaking, defy gravity: magazines, biscuits (not even very light wafers), trousers, cream.

Is it Just Me or is Everything Sh^t?
The Encyclodpedia of Modern Life
Alan McArthur and Steve Lowe
Grand Central Publishing
Pg 112

This is an old book and they already have another one out, so I'm going to review this and then move onto the next one (Is it Just Me or is Everything Sh^t?: Insanely Annoying Modern Things) before the 3rd is published. If you've ever watched any of the Grumpy Old Men programmes these books are very much in the same category. ;)

A weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
 
What's your Teaser Tuesday?

  17. Doesn't look like something I would enjoy. Not because of the language, but because I want to escape reality, not have my gravity-impacted face slapped with it!
