[Publishing] Oh, the sly world of book publishing.
A press release just landed in my e-mailbox announcing a new book titled
The Prick Index.
And state Sen. Chris Buttars isn't even on it.
That's because it's not really about big pricks.
Says the press release:
Prick isn't a dirty word. The book is about insights into thorny relationships. These relationships are both male and female in gender. The term "prick" is a metaphor for a rose thorn. The book has a new method of quantifying the level of pricking in a light, playful tone while capturing the seriousness of the subject. Recent readers of the book are quoted as saying "I couldn't wait to turn the pages. It is a fun book to read! It made me laugh!"
Got it. Bwahahaha. (Holly Mullen)
