FUN FACT REVIEW: 1001 Things that will scare the s!!t Out of You - Cary McNeal


Fact: Ithyphallophobia is the fear of seeing, thinking about or having an erect penis. Fact: You are more likely to be killed by a donkey than an airplane crash. This is a hilarious collection of little-known facts about the world that are weird, creepy, disgusting and sure to frighten the bejeezus out of anyone. This ultimate bathroom book will enlighten you to a variety of troubling truths about everything from the secret ingredient found in bottled water to what your brother was doing just before you shook his hand, from a fish that wants to swim up your genitals to how a simple airplane flight can blow out your rectum. Educational, entertaining and horrifying, this book isn't guaranteed to help you go to the bathroom, but it's certain to make your time there more enjoyable.


I love books that are to be honest, bathroom offerings. They’re full of useless facts (except for trivia) that really will amuse as well as fascinate you to a certain degree. That said this offering hit the spot as to its target yet I was really put off this title by the snide alleged humour of the author after each fact was written. It wasn’t required and really took a lot of the enjoyment out of this offering. Perhaps next time, if humour is required the title could be written by someone with a sense of humour rather than additional childish adlibs.
