From the genius of funnyman Bob Fenster, who brought you Duh!, They Did What!?, and Well, Duh!, comes ather in real-life idiocy. The Duh Awards hors the intellectually challenged and utterly inept. From historical explorers to politicians to celebrities to everyday people, one is spared from lampoon. Ever tice there seems to be an award show for just about everything? And that everyone who wins is rich, beautiful, and brilliant? Good-looking, intelligent winners are everywhere. The Duh Awards is for the rest of us. These awards are handed out to the t-so-smart, the underworked, the overpaid, the wacky, the weird, and the downright stupid. And it's about time! Chapters include such ridiculousness as: Boss of the Year and Other Slave Driver Awards; Champion Scoffers, Scorners, Insulters, and Other All-Star Wise Guys; and Only in Hollywood-The Anti-Oscars. Here are just a excerpts from this hilarious book: The Kw-a-Little, Talk-a-Lot Society presents the Anti-Expert Awards: In 1931 President Herbert Hoover somehow missed the impact of the Great Depression when he offered this solution: If someone could get off a good joke every ten days, I think our troubles would be over. Winning Mind Games: All-Star Shockers, Psych-Outs, and Gross Champs: During the halftime show of the 2004 Super Bowl, singer Justin Timberlake removed part of singer Janet Jackson's shirt to reveal one of her star breasts on national TV.

We also kw there are kwn unkwns; that is to say we kw there are some things we do t kw. But there are also unkwn unkwns--the ones we don't kw we don't kw.
