Talk about gaffes. Here are best men forgetting to show up at the wedding. Judges staggered by the incompetence of their previous decisions. Senators frozen in front of TV cameras. Olympic officials gazing absently while bewildered runners continue through the finish line. Bono losing the only copy of his lyrics to a new album. Forget to pick up your copy today!

    Author: LLOYD JOHN, MITCHINSON JOHN & HARKIN JAMES


    QI is the smartest comedy show on British television, but few people know that we're also a major legal hit in Australia, New Zealand, Israel and Africa and an illegal one on BitTorrent. We also write books and newspaper columns; run a thriving website, a Facebook page, a Twitter feed; and produce an iPhone App and a sister Radio 4 programme. At the core of what we do is the astonishing fact - painstakingly researched and distilled to a brilliant and shocking clarity. In Einstein's words: 'Everything should be as simple as possible, but not simpler.'


    Did you know that: cows moo in regional accents; the entire internet weighs less than a grain of sand; the dialling code from Britain to Russia is 007; potatoes have more chromosomes than human beings; the London Underground has made more money from its famous map than it has from running trains; Tintin is called Tantan in Japanese because TinTin is pronounced 'Chin chin' and means penis; the water in the mouth of a blue whale weighs more than its body; Scotland has twice as many pandas as Conservative MPs; Saddam's bunker was designed by the grandson of the woman who built Hitler's bunker; Under the Wildlife and Countryside Act of 1981, it is explicitly illegal in Britain to use a machinegun to kill a hedgehog.

    Title: 112 Gripes About the French: The 1945 Handbook for American GIS in Occupied France
    Author: BODLEIAN LIBRARY (ED)

    When American troops arrived in Paris at the end of World War II, they were at first welcomed by the local population. However, the French soon began to resent the Americans for their brashness and display of wealth, while the Americans found the French and their habits equally irritating and incomprehensible: they bathed too little, drank too much, and were almost unfailingly unfriendly.To bridge the cultural divide, the American generals commissioned this surprisingly candid guide that paired common complaints about the French with answers aimed at promoting understanding. From the fascinations of French nightlife to Gallic grooming and fashions, the guide sought to correct the misconceptions behind a litany of common complaints: "Laissez-faire" is not in fact a call to laziness, and the French do not play checkers in cafes all day--though they do extol the virtues of a leisurely lunch. The moral principles of the Frenchwoman ought not to be drawn from the few one might find loitering on the fringes of the camp.Beyond their intended instructive purposes, the grievances included in the guide are at times as revealing of the preconceptions of the American servicemen as they are of the French, as well as offering fascinating insight into the details of daily life immediately after the war, including the acute poverty, the shortage of food and supplies, and the scale of destruction suffered by France during the six years of conflict. Illustrated throughout with charming cartoons and written in a direct, no-nonsense style, "112 Gripes about the French "is by turns amusing and thought-provoking in its valiant stand against prejudice and stereotype.

    Title: 99 Problems: Superstars Have Bad Days, Too
    Author: GRAHAM ALI

    Poor Superstar. All the money and fame in the world won t prevent him from having a bad hair day. Or stepping in gum. Or not being able to fit into skinny jeans, or watching helplessly as a scoop of ice cream falls from its cone. Or so an unnamed Superstar s life is ingeniously imagined in this very funny book. Inspired by but not based on Jay Z s monster hit 99 Problems, illustrator Ali Graham riffs on what might be the real problems afflicting a world-famous music mogul who also happens to be married to the foremost diva of our time. Begun as a Tumblr, which went viral almost instantly, "99 Problems" is a highly conceptual gift book showcasing 99 full-color illustrations of a cartoon character who looks just like a certain legendary rapper, and the often ordinary and sometimes fantastical things that happen to him. And that s where the book finds its hilarious, compulsive hook in an age that worships celebrity and assumes, somewhat enviously, that fame and fortune can protect one from life s travails, what if that just weren t true? There s a surprising, underlying warmth here. Even when the author dips into flights of pop culture fantasy Superstar on the bow of the "Titanic"; Superstar whipping up a bad batch alongside Walter White from "Breaking Bad" the recognition of shared kinship is strong. It s a cartoon version of celebrity, but like the best cartoons, it s edgy and knowing, yet sweet, too."

    Author: JAVERBAUM DAVID

    ***"An Act of God" (previously published as "The Last Testament: A Memoir") is now a major Broadway show starring Jim Parsons ("The Big Bang Theory") and directed by Joe Mantello ("Wicked")***
    Over the course of his long and distinguished career, God has literally seen it all. And not just seen. In fact, the multitalented deity has played a pivotal role in many major events, including the Creation of the universe, the entirety of world history, and the successful transitioning of "American Idol" into the post-Simon Cowell era. Sometimes preachy, sometimes holier-than-thou, but always lively, "An Act of God" is the ultimate celebrity autobiography.

    Title: Adolf Hitler My Part in His Downfall
    Author: MILLIGAN SPIKE

    'At Victoria station the R.T.O. gave me a travel warrant, a white feather and a picture of Hitler marked "This is your enemy". I searched every compartment, but he wasn't on the train . . .'In this, the first of Spike Milligan's uproarious recollections of life in the army, our hero takes us from the outbreak of war in 1939 ('it must have been something we said'), through his attempts to avoid enlistment ('time for my appendicitus, I thought') and his gunner training in Bexhill ('There was one drawback. No ammunition') to the landing at Algiers in 1943 ('I closed my eyes and faced the sun. I fell down a hatchway'). Filled with bathos, pathos and gales of ribald laughter, this is a barely sane helping of military goonery and superlative Milliganese.

    Title: Adorable Circle of Life Cutesy Creatures Doing What They Do Best
    Author: SOLIS ALEX

    Savage. Menacing. Ruthless.

    Predators get a pretty bad rap. Sure, they prey on helpless animals that never stand a chance, but behind those jagged teeth, powerful jaws, and razor-sharp claws, every predator has a softer side. Maybe even an adorable one.

    Everyone has compassion for the cute bunny or lamb. But what about their predators who are working hard for their meal? Capturing their prey is a life-or-death game. Just think about the last time you had to hunt for food while hangry. You can understand, right?

    Including famous quotes from history that give context to these disturbingly cute illustrations, Alex Solis shares his sense of humor while giving readers a way to enjoy the darkest parts of life with a smile.

    It's time to give theses predators a break! Because, in the end, both predators and their prey play a role. I mean, it's not their fault they were made this way! They're just living off of instincts, doing what comes naturally to them. So rather than turning away from nature, let's celebrate all the animals who complete The Adorable Circle of Life.

    Title: Alice In Zombieland
    Author: CARROLL LEWIS & COOK NICKOLAS

    They were indeed a queer-looking party that assembled on the bank-the birds with draggled feathers, the animals with their fur clinging close to them, and all dripping wet, cross, and uncomfortable. All of them were covered in Alice's now cold and congealed blood, which made them even tastier looking to poor hungry Alice. When little Alice follows the Black Rat down into the gaping darkness of an open grave, she falls and falls. And soon finds herself in an undead nightmare of rotting flesh and insanity. Venturing further into this land of zombies and monsters, she encounters characters both creepy and madcap along the way. But there's something else troubling poor Alice: her skin is rotting and her hair is falling out. She's cold. And she has the haunting feeling that if she remains in Zombieland any longer, she might never leave. Can Alice escape Zombieland before the Dead Red Queen catches up to her?
