I'd heard it was just hilarious. But maybe I have some sort of brain injury that keeps me from finding things - that I can tell were meant to be funny - hilarious. I've tried to analyze this. Because more than one book that people claim they just laugh and laugh at - I just don't care for. I think what I don't like is when a writer tries to write funny. I'd prefer to laugh at funny situations rather than a witty style of writing. But on to the book.

His name is Not Sidney and he spends most of his life trying to convince people of this. His mom was pregnant with him for 104 weeks and then dies and he goes to live with Ted Turner and Jane Fonda. He has a lot of money. And it's just hilarious!!! Or so they say .....
