Miscellany from the Author Guy

I’m starting to feel like Billy Mays, that guy that sells Oxy Clean on TV by screaming at you. (Who, I would, by the way, like to see in a death match with Chris Matthews,  a yell-off, if you will.)

But still. Can you believe it?!!!  William Morrow is going to give away a bunch of Fool hats, signed copies of Fool, and an Iphone, to the readers who posts the funniest pictures of themselves, their kid, or the pets, or all three, and their copy of Fool on the site below.

I know, you can’t get your pictures in quite yet, but a lot of you have access to an advanced readers copy, I think that counts. I’ve been wearing my Fool hat around town for about a month, and I can tell you, it gets attention.

Details are forthcoming.

    If anyone is going to have a yell-off, it should be Billy Mays and the guy who does the announcing for Mexican soccer.

    I mentioned Fool on my blog pretty recently (I think because I was relaying your “tardness”) and a ton of the responses were “I can’t wait for it,” or a reasonable facsimile. I should get a fool hat… It might move the focus of the men at work from my boobs to my face (or at least closer to it).

    When will the site be available? The link doesn’t work.

    Forget the yell-off, I want to see a Battle of the Pitchmen, steel cage, fight to the death between Billy Mays, the Sham-wow guy, the UPS Whiteboard guy and the Verizon–Can you hear me now–guy.

    Put them in a cage and don’t open it up until at least 3 of them are lying dead. Then, of course, throw the champion in front of a fast moving train.

    btw: i swear i don’t kill small animals or have violent behavior patterns.

    I understand the concept. I meant: ‘Splain how one goes about getting this Advanced Copy, Amelia Bedelia.
