Am purging and was going to throw this out but it's too damn funny. Perfect bathroom book.

"Accuse me of stereotyping, but when I see peopke with bad taste, I believe I know their lives through their uniquely tacky thumbprint. I saw a guy the other day who was perfect. He had on navy polyester blue Hagar slacks with brown snakeskin coyboy boots and a pink muscle shirt with green stripes. This guy has sideburns like I haven't seen since TBS last ran 'Play Misty For Me', topped with a comb-over tha

What’s the biggest room in the world? Room for improvement. What’s the second biggest? Room for improvement with Dennis Miller in it complaining about the ugly wallpaper.

If we could make a living out of being professional malcontents, we’d be too late. Mr. Miller has cornered the market of the caustic quipster to become the head honcho of harassment and the superb sultan of simile. Rarely obscene but always pointed, Mr. Miller’s jabs force us to wake up and smell the coffee—and then realize that

I don't need to go into details really. . .if you loved Dennis Miller way back in the day, during his HBO heyday, or afterwards when he kind of became a far-right psycho!, this book will touch all the angles.

Taken from his HBO rants, these 70+ rants are mostly golden and serve as a time capsule to the late 1990s, in a time when the biggest political problem we had was office blowjobs. It is an innocent time and Miller's rants, while always well written, are not quite as jaded and harsh as his po

Any book by Dennis Miller is funny and entertaining. His wit and sarcasm is hard to match.

If you like Dennis Miller, this is a pretty good book. Most of these rants take place from his HBO show in late 90's, so they may seem dated. If Monica Lewinsky jokes are timeless, this is the book for you!

This is merely a collection of Miller's rants at the beginning of his HBO series. They're hilarious and worth reading as a therapy after reading something as heavy as Moby Dick.

By now it seems like I have read this all before. His comments that I use to find witty and insightful now seem contrived and drawn out.
Kurt Lutter
What the hell happened to Miller? He used to be so fuckin' funny. Back in the 80's his stand up was priceless. Now he's just a phony.

What can I say? He gets 4 stars because he makes me laugh. But Dave Barry still makes me laugh harder.

It takes more than a pitiable attempt to be shockingly obscene to achieve humor.
