To Earnest, who was a big help; and to Zippy, who was a small emergency backup help.

Classic ’00: The Mad Hungarian’s fastball made my cup runneth over.

com/events-appear. ave Barry. Classic ’00: The Mad Hungarian’s fastball made my cup runneth over. When I was a boy, playing Little League baseball, I dreamed - as most boys did back then - of someday getting a call from the Major Leagues. ’Son,’‘ I dreamed the Major Leagues would tell me, ‘’you stink. We’re kicking you out of Little League.

The title, as Dave Barry admits, is not entirely accurate. I have read nearly all of Dave's books, and it never ceases to amaze me that he can be hilarious on each and every occasion. To be sure, this collection of articles does contain what the ng author calls "an unusually high (for me) level of factual content. But there is also an abundance of goofy reportage, fart jokes (see "It's A Gas"), and Barry's long-overdue thoughts on natural childbirth.

In this hilarious (USA Today) national bestseller, Pulitzer Prize winning humorist Dave Barry pens one of the warmest, most delightful Christmas stories ever

In this hilarious (USA Today) national bestseller, Pulitzer Prize winning humorist Dave Barry pens one of the warmest, most delightful Christmas stories ever. The year is 1960, and the Christmas pageant at St. John's Episcopal Church is a very big deal.

That’s why this book is called Dave Barry Is Not Making This Up. I want to stress, however, that this title does . I want to stress, however, that this title does not mean that this is a serious book. I hope you don’t find this mixture of fact and fiction to be confusing. Anyway, we showed up for the first class, along with about 15 other couples consisting of women who were going to have babies and men who were going to have to watch them.

I so enjoy reading any/all of Dave Barry's books. It started twelve years ago. I was temporarily living with my sister and her family as I was going through a long period of chemo. I was unable to find pleasure in reading or tv. One day I noticed Mr. Barry book on a shelf in the den. I read the book as I was able and it lifted me out of the depression I was in. All these years later I read everything he writes. This was a long way of saying that his books are nothing short of hilarious. I strongly recommend this book.

I like Dave Barry. This is one more in his collection of absurd metaphors. Most are very clever and I find them entertaining for days after I've read the book. However you may find repeating them to others who you think might find them hilarious also . . . Well let me put it this way, it may lose a bit in the translation.

I'm about to get another Dave Barry book to perk me up.

Dave Barry is one of the foremost humorists of the 20th century (and 21st, although less active in this millennium). Not only is he hilarious, but he was consistently hilarious at the Miami Herald for decades--quite a fete. In DAVE BARRY IS NOT MAKING THIS UP we see some of his earlier writings. They're wickedly clever, but occasionally meander into what might loosely be described as "journalism," before Barry had fully decided to go 100% humorist. If you're a Dave Barry fan, read this. If you are a humor writer, read this for inspiration.

I thought this rather old book would be, well, rather old. But I still find myself laughing at these pieces. I' m left handed, so I really liked the article about the miseries accorded the left handers. Dave Barry often feels the need to reassure book readers that he's not writing fiction as he explores odd news stories and his odd commection with them. This is a fun

I have read nearly all of Dave's books, and it never ceases to amaze me that he can be hilarious on each and every occasion. He doesn't duplicate any annecdotes, he simply uses his comic genius to make up new ones.. you will never be bored with Dave's ability to make you rush to the toilet to save wetting the floor, or laughing so hard you feel sick, and the back of your head hurts. This book is my favourite. Every story is funny, clever, and even sometimes sentimental. Please buy this one, you won't regret it. He's on top form.
