#1742
The Writers' & Artists' Tearbook.

A mighty tome which will make you weep copiously, and perhaps rip out your hair in despair when you realise just how many thousands of potential markets there are out there which will neither want nor publish your lovingly crafted prose.

Cruelly - maliciously even - although it's a hefty volume at around one thousand pages, it's not tall enough to jump off and commit suicide when the above realisation dawns on you.  Nor is it heavy enough to appreciably weigh you down if you succumb to the desire to throw yourself into the local dock and drown.

But it is heavy enough and un-aerodynamic enough to be cumbersome for throwing at irritating cats, dogs, children or partners.  (One of those little fancy dictionaries with  a faux leather cover and a press stud closure - and uselessly small print - is however ideal for this purpose, and can/should always be kept in easy reach in the guise of a 'paperweight'.)

The Writers' and Artists' Rear Book  When you've finally received a rejection slip from every publisher and every agent listed therein, you can still find a use for all those pages.

My Tanic  An account of the building, by one of those notable English eccentrics, of the world's smallest transatlantic liner.  It had to be small because he built it in his back garden, largely out of used beer cans.  The remarkable thing about the "Tanic" was not that it sank - of course it sank! - but that it got all the way from Southampton to the Isle of Wight first.

My 'Sonic  So his turned his hand to building a Concorde out of match-stick boxes.  Unhappily, he failed to empty the boxes before firing up the jet engine (made of Spam tins and well-chewed string.)

Politics For Dummies

A book which has clearly never been read by any of the clowns, utter bozos, and barely human freaks involved in this 'profession'

Prostitution is often cited as being the world's oldest profession, but one has to wonder if proto-politicians existed way back in the primordial slime and have never truly left it.
