Some essays are built on helpful advice, Madge-style. Sample titles: How Not to Have Your Obituary Read: "She Was a Pain in the Ass'" and How to Keep Your Daughter Off the Pole.
Some essays are purely satirical (I hope!), such as her illustrated campaign to land a reality television show for her "rack"
My favorite passages reflect her typically creative, no holds-barred assessment of the world as we know it. Madge on Fifty Shades: "The girl is everything that's wrong with women, and he's a controlling douchecopter." Item number three on Madge's list of dreaded Facebook cliches: "The health overshare: `I just got home from the doctor, still can't figure out what is wrong. Still have purple ooze coming from my rectum. But doc said my mologium levels are normal. Will test my saliva tomorrow.'"
The bottom line: Buy this book. Read it. You will laugh.
