Some of these are more entertaining than others, but only "The Flap Store" was a bit of a letdown. On the other hand some of the stories border on genius, most notably "Zantac the Conqueror" and "The True Story of The Japanese Man With Hair on His Back." Savory? No. Funny? Yes. Several characters, notably Kenny Rogers, Mark Twain, and Teddy Roosevelt, have recurring roles in the strangest of places in this book, and you will learn history here that you would have otherwise never have even suspected before. I am also quite startled by Ted's neurological disorder where he intermittently yells the names of men. As he explains "I am sorry. But I have a disease where I yell out men's names....I try to control myself but I am a sufferer currently on Canadian Internet drugs."
While I prefer his earlier letters, this is an amusing and interesting departure. I was torn about rating it, as it's great (which yielded a five star rating) but not as great as "Letters From a Nut" (which argued for four stars.) In the end I think it's just too funny not to give five stars; bizarre humor of this sort is in short enough supply and Mr. Nancy needs to be encouraged to write more with all due haste.
Having said that, still better than a majority of the crap that parades as comedic literature today. If your a fan, you will find stuff to like and enjoy. If your not a fan, go for the "Nut Letters" series first to get the genius of Ted.
Read this book, laugh out loud, and then try to figure out what in the world could have happened to the mind of Ted L. Nancy to make all of this possible.
The last time I asked let there be a next...and now there is.
In this book Mr. Nancy travels to peoples jobs and brings along nonsensical entertainers while telling people at their work his nonsensical stories.
one of my favorites in the book is the bathroom attendant that finally passed out. I have worked in an upscale restaurant and always wondered if the attendant there would make it through the night. i know i couldn't spend two minutes in there.
As I said in my other review i said let there be a next.
So i hope there is an AFTERNOON STORIES TWO.
