Cultural Historian Anthony Slide, who has been described by the Los Angeles Times as a one-man publishing phenomenon, strikes again with a book guaranteed to contain something OFFENSIVE for everyone. Chapters on subjects as varied as CAMP, FASCISM in Hollywood, Hedda Hopper and the PORKY'S movies. The latest topical jokes on Helen Keller, Eleanor Roosevelt and the Challenger disaster. Subjects such as ALCOHOL, DRUG and SPOUSAL ABUSE, COMMUNISM, ETHNICITY, GAYS and LESBIANS and RELIGION. Commentary on leading figures of the era, including Father Coughlin, Kinky Friedman, Tom Lehrer and John Wayne. They are all here in this QUIRKY, OUTRAGEOUS, informative, and above all, ENTERTAINING overview of POLITICAL INCORRECTNESS and BAD TASTE in 20th century popular entertainment, including film, theatre, music, radio, television and vaudeville.
