richard's poor almanac summer reading by richard thompson guy 1: in "ulysses," james joyce, using innovative narrative techniques, tells the story of leopold bloom, who has just 24 hours to find & defuse the bomb hidden somewhere in dublin by the elusive criminal mastermind & illegal organ dealer known only as- the brain! thrill as bloom, his beautiful wife, molly, and their hip young side-kick steve dedalus track down the brain in a fast-paced pub crawl that culminates in a pulse-pounding fire-fight in an abandoned distillery! woman: i have to read "silas marner," "last of the mohicans," "the pearl," "a separate peace" and "the old man and the sea" for a class in hatefully dull literature. guy 2: i'm reading this, but i can't really recommend it. great big jumbo giant pop-up book guy 3: i'm reading the comics page, it's the only place where dead white males are still producing work on a daily basis. guy 4: "brewed using only the finest malt, hops & barley." there, i read something. go away.
