This book is for those who want enlightenment, but can¡¯t afford the plane ticket to Tibet. If you can¡¯t afford this book, that¡¯s not a problem either. The secret to enlightenment can be found in the introduction of the book, thereby bypassing hours of needless reading. Of course, once you¡¯re enlightened, there¡¯s not much left to do in life, so you might as well finish the book. And this is no ordinary book! It¡¯s a collection of Daniel Reynolds¡¯ cult column, Slightly OFF, a column where you never know what to expect. Slightly OFF skips all the bashing and mudslinging of other commentary columns and simply forces its readers to look at popular culture through psycho-colored glasses, dressing familiar things in new clothes to see how ridiculous they looked in the old ones. Fifty of the best Slightly OFFs are here, ranging in topics from politics to sex to Pepsi to religion to beauty to mustard. And when you combine religion and mustard, it¡¯s never pretty. This collection includes: -¡°A Fish Named God:¡± A theology based on a goldfish; no LSD required. -¡°Wanted by the FBI:¡± The nation¡¯s most wanted felons, including Santa Claus. -¡°Sex and the Oklahoma City:¡± Cutting through the ¡°latex curtain¡± in the Midwest. -¡°Tales from the ER:¡± The dark side of medicine has nothing to do with malpractice. It has to do with shampoo bottles. -¡°Parenting:¡± Five children, five adults and a three bedroom house. ¡®Nuff said. When all is said and done, you may not be enlightened, but you¡¯ll probably feel a little unbalanced. And that¡¯s close enough.
