'Vimes ran a practised eye over the assortment before him. It was the usual Ankh-Morpork mob in times of crisis; half of them were here to complain, a quarter of them were here to watch the other half, and the remainder were here to rob, importune or sell hotdogs to the rest.'
Insurrection is in the air in Ankh-Morpork. The Haves and Have-Nots are about to fall out all over again. Captain Sam Vimes of the city's ramshackle Night Watch is used to this. It's enough to drive a man to drink. Well, to drink more. But this time, something is different - the Have-Nots have found the key to a dormant, lethal weapon that even they don't fully understand, and they're about to unleash a campaign of terror on the city. Time for Captain Vimes to sober up.
Pinterest. Foodies. Anne Frank's underwear. New York Times bestselling author Laurie Notaro--rightfully hailed as "the funniest writer in the solar system" (The Miami Herald)--spares nothing and no one, least of all herself, in this uproarious new collection of essays on rudeness. With the sardonic, self-deprecating wit that makes us all feel a little better about ourselves for identifying with her, Laurie explores her recent misadventures and explains why it's not her who is nuts, it's them (and okay, sometimes it's her too).
Whether confessing that her obsession with buying fabric has reached junior hoarder status or mistaking a friend's heinous tattoo as temporary, Laurie puts her unique spin--sometimes bizarre, always entertaining--on the many perils of modern living in a mannerless society. From shuddering at the graphic Harry Potter erotica conjured up at a writer's group to lamenting the sudden ubiquity of quinoa ("It looks like larvae no matter how you cook it"), The Potty Mouth at the Table is whip-smart, unpredictable, and hilarious. In other words, irresistibly Laurie.
Fred is determined to buy the farm he has always wanted. Trouble is, he has no money. Will courting the cross-eyed Daisy May get him the wherewithal to achieve his dreams?
A Muddy Fork story
Carina Conte has had a crush on her brother Michael's best friend, Max Gray, since she was a teenager back home in Italy. Now she's earned her MBA and come to work at Michael's new venture, America's fastest-growing bakery empire. But some things never change: her overprotective family still treats her like a child. With three drop-dead gorgeous siblings, she's still the ugly duckling of the bunch. And Max, the company's new CEO, still barely notices her.
Max knows Carina Conte is strictly off-limits, for the sake of his job and his friendship with Michael. But hot-blooded lust wins out at a conference when the two share a scorching one-night stand--and are busted by her mother! Now, forced by old-world Italian tradition into a marriage he's not ready for, Max is miserable--and Carina is furious. Her new husband is about to realize that hell hath no fury like a woman transformed. . . .

Names are thematically arranged into lists including "Names You Can Drink at the Bar" (Jager, Hennessey), "Names That Fit Into Skinny Jeans" (Vette, Plank), "Vegan and Gluten-Free Names" (Miso, Quinoa), and "Names to CTRL+C and CTRL+V" (Adobe, Helvetica). Also included are "tipsters" for sparking naming creativity, such as opening a box of crayons or scanning the credits of a foreign film. Pabst presents a whole new approach to baby-naming for a whole new generation of parents who want names that look good on a tote bag and kick ass at the playground.
