563 Stupid Things Stupid People Do to Mess Up Their Lives

Dr. Larry Samuel

St. Martin's Griffin

Have you, or has anyone you know, ever suffered from stupidity?

From Dr. Larry, the Internationally Renowned Psychotherapist, Self-Righteous Occupier of the Moral High Ground, and All-Around Better Person than You, comes 563 Stupid Things People Do to Mess Up Their Lives. Dr. Larry's previous books, such as You Can't Spell Stupid Without U and I and Why Mediocre Things Happen to Mediocre People, have changed the lives of millions of intelligence-challenged individuals all over the world. So if you're interested in hearing a perfect stranger explain to you how stupid and useless you really are, you'll love Dr. Larry's latest collection of condescending wisdom. For example, don't do the following:

Stupid Thing #50: Attempt the Vulcan mind meld. If you don't know what you're doing, this can lead to permanent melding.

Stupid Thing #228: Accentuate the positive. Rather than accentuate the positive or eliminate the negative, I'd recommend messing around with Mr. In-Between.

Stupid Thing #44: Send in the clowns. I can think of no situation that would be improved by sending in the clowns.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

  • Dr. Larry Samuel

  • Just like Dr. Laura Schlessinger, Larry Samuel is an actual doctor. He doesn't, however, have a radio show, or several bestselling books. But, while he frequently makes fun of Dr. Laura, she has yet, to his knowledge, to make fun of him.
