How Much is that Scorpion in the Windo/Martin, John/Paper/1920764615/S049-D2
Columns, satire, spoof news and completely made-up stuff from Australian columnist John Martin!
When humour writer John Martin was a boy, pet shops provided simple pets for simple needs in simple times. But times have changed.
"I was in the pet shop the other day and was truly startled with what they had to sell," Martin writes in this collection of stories both small and tall. The stories range from his twisted accounts from the pet shop, the kitchen and the garden to spoof news pieces to fictional humour and satire lampooning the workplace, sport and politics.
All are suitable for quick-fix reading in this busy, odd new world. Just one warning though: it is not recommended that you consume liquids while reading this book. Milk or beer could shoot out of your nose - and possibly attract all the neighbourhood scorpions.
