This is sure to join the ranks of the most popular publications (How to Talk to Your Cat About Gun Safety, Love is Not Constantly Wondering if You're Making the Biggest Mistake of Your Life, Field Guide to the Aliens of Star Trek the Next Generation) in Zachary Auburn's strange catalog of wholly singular oddities...[ continued ]
