Lobstergirl I must say Thom the title of your list is giving me hives, with its incorrect grammar. Or should I say it's giving I hives.

Me can agree with that, so too David Sedaris.

Because I, too, AM a college graduate, IT IS I who has hives.

Lobstergirl A bunch of bad votes on there. I got rid of them.

Just repeated the process.

Folks, please remember a book actually has to include an express grammatical first person reference in its TITLE to be eligible for this list ...

Added quotation marks around "I" Hope youz OK with that.
