OK, this was funny and weird, like all his stuff, but I like him best when he has an actual story to tell, like in Dry or Running with Scissors. This collection is a lot like Possible Side Effects in its randomness. I find myself thinking, how does this guy keep convincing people to publish all these amusing but basically pointless stories? And can I have the phone number of those people? I too have lots of pointless stories and would love to make some money off of them. I enjoyed this but I think I'm boycotting Burroughs until he comes out with an actual cohesive story again. I feel like I've heard all he has to say. I'll summarize for you: he's gay and had a bad childhood. Ha ha!The End.
