The pen is mightier than the sword.


"You’re picking a fight with Fox News? They gave Juan Williams a $2 million contract just for you firing him. NPR, you just brought a tote bag full of David Sedaris books to a knife fight!!!"

Today I found 38 matches for a Google search of "NPR, you just brought a tote bag full of David Sedaris books to a knife fight!!!" Last night Jon Stewart made me laugh when he said that on The Daily Show, even though I've never even read a David Sedaris book. But I always pick them up and read the descriptions because the covers and titles are so unique. Anyway, this morning as I drove to work, what do I hear on NPR? Jon Stewart saying, "NPR, you just brought a tote bag full of David Sedaris books to a knife fight!!!" NPR, thank you for laughing with us.

Any David Sedaris fans? Do you have a favorite to recommend to me?

P.S. You too can own a Pirate Skeleton letter opener or my version of a book/knife fight.

That's hilarious. I'm a big fan and I'd recommend starting with Me Talk Pretty One Day. I think it's his best and it's a good way to see if you like his sense of humor. He never fails to crack me up. If you can possibly listen to his audiobooks (which he reads) that's the best!

Hilarious! We laughed pretty hard at that comment too when we saw it. I listend to the audio version of "Naked" and loved it! He is verry funny.

I need to find that clip! I love David Sedaris...I agree with the other two posts, but just to different, I would suggest Barrel Fever. Also, I own Holidays On Ice if you want to borrow it : )
