Brain Explosion: A Collection of Thoughts, Verbiage, Assorted Quotables and Profundities (paperback)
Consider simultaneously smiling and blowing your mind.
From the skewed brain of National Lampoon’s Dave Shelton comes a collection of quotes, observations, cartoons, titles, and silly names that skewer everything from marriage, the entertainment industry, and sports. Smile, laugh, think, or learn something cool that you can espouse at parties. This oddly knotted set of silliness spreads over nearly 200 pages that are overfilled with often hilarious cartoons, writings, musings, and recorded comments from his days as head of cartoons and senior writer at the legendary National Lampoon. Who knew that insanity could be so easy?
