Larson has crafted plenty of new words, such as, dinnerloper, bathlete, mopposition, and shedontist. He takes you on a fun journey with fictional accounts of the U.S. Patent Office of the late 1800's. Also, can a politian be compared to types of shoes? Yep. Is there a spelling quiz? You've heard of Spelling BEE's? How about a Spelling A as a master upgrade? He challenges phrases you, the reader, may have used many times (How do you do?, or, My windbreaker keeps me warm, or, Draw a blank, or, Take a pee.) There is an incredible number of couplets that look like they should rhyme, but don't (daughter and laughter). Finally, there is a medical quiz with answers that will either amuse you or confuse you. All-in-all, this is a new way of combining humor, trivia, philosophy, diction and jargon into one volume of worthy, "water cooler" discussions.
