About the book
Great book! It is packed with laughs, I tell you. In fact, I'll tell anyone who reads the back cover. Lane Filler is so funny, he could write a column about the history of stucco walls and pack it with eight solid laughs. Even better for us, he writes about universal subjects like marriage, religion, email and the evils of houseplants (well, that last one may not be quite universal. But you know what I'm saying). I am happy to report, after reading this incisive, surprisingly touching, and very, very funny collection that the Lane Filler I know is alive and well and writing in Spartanburg. Don't let the good manners fool you; once a wiseass, always a wiseass. - Josh Lieb Co-Executive Producer The Daily Show with Jon Stewart One time, when a reader called in with a tip, Lane writes "I smelled a Pulitzer. Or Camembert. I smelled something." You know what I smell? Comedy. The sweet fragrance of comedic insights into life. I encourage you to breathe deep some Lane Filler. Lane once wrote that he knows "slightly less about cars than a duck-billed platypus of middling intellect knows about early 20th- century dance crazes." Which may be true. But he does know a lot about writing an entertaining book. - AJ Jacobs, author of The Year of Living Biblically About Lane Filler Lane Filler, 37, is a national award-winning journalist whose work has appeared in hundreds of newspapers all over the world, including the Philadelphia Inquirer, Miami Herald, Charlotte Observer, San Jose Mercury-News, Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Kansas City Star and, well, a lot of other ones but he doesn't keep careful track. Maybe we should ask his mother. He has worked as an embedded reporter in Iraq and Kuwait, covered three presidential elections, and can convert celsius to fahrenheit, and vice versa, in his head. Currently, Filler is a columnist and editor at the Spartanburg Herald-Journal, a New York Times-owned newspaper in Upstate South Carolina.
