News Muse is a collection of news-related, humorous poems. Strange news inspires the author to write poems full of humor, wordplay, rhythm and rhyme. The subject matter is anything but the ordinary. One poem describes the text message of a desperate cow to her beloved; another tells the story of a tourist participating in the search for herself in Iceland. Includes links to the inspiring articles.
Q: Why take one unlikely topic -- vasectomies -- and write more than 650 Q&A jokes -- painfully clever nick'dnames -- about it? A: Because they're funny. Also irreverent, provocative and thought provoking; frank and adult, yet never filthy. It's unlike anything you're ever likely to read and the kind of funny today's world needs -- not quite-so-dumb-jokes to be enjoyed by very smart people.
