From the Back Cover
Can a Guy Get Pregnant? is a very serious collection of off-beat questions and answers that prove truth is indeed stranger–and funnier–than fiction.
Bill and Rich Sones are coauthors of the widely-distributed newspaper column “Strange But True.” Over the past eight years, they’ve gathered together thousands of questions and have diligently tracked down the scientific research that answers them.
Here, with dry wit and rock-solid information, the Sones brothers answer everyday and not-so-everyday questions about the body, love, death, and animals, including:
If you’re starving, can you eat your clothes?
(If you’re wearing the right kind, yes.)
Does a “dog year” really equal seven human years?
(Nope. But there is a better way to estimate.)
What would it be like to die in outer space?
(Hint: It’s bad.)
Do opposites attract?
(Not unless money is involved.)
Will chimps watch X-rated movies?
(Maybe it’s better not to ask…)
Accompanied by illustrations that capture the authors’ unconventional sense of humor, Can a Guy Get Pregnant? will astound and delight both those with a penchant for the bizarre and those who insist on the authority of science.
