A delightful collection of the wild, the weird, and the wonderful culled from the Wall Street Journa l's popular, and long-standing A-hed column. One of the Wall Street Journal 's most popular features for more than seventy years, the daily A-hed columnnamed for a headline that looked like a letter Ahas diverted readers from the more glum news of war, economic woe, natural disasters, and manmade malfeasance. Covering a wide range of lunacy and the unusual from across the nation and the world, the A-hed continues to enchant longtime readers. Now, the best A-hed stories from recent years have been bundled into this delightful collection. There are romantic tales, including the Japanese infidelity phone (it keeps trysts secret) and the story of wingmen and wingwomen who escort wallflowers to nightspots and maneuver them into the arms of prospective catches. Lovers of dogs, cats, and fish will learn how a Marine Corps bulldog got promoted to sergeant, how a grumpy cat acquired a Hollywood agent, and will be left wondering if a 63-pound carp named Benson died naturally in England or was the victim of foul play. From pantyhose (or mantyhose) for men to a campaign to recruit youthful nudists, a hairdo archeologist to five escaped wallabies and hippies smoking catnip, these stories will make readers laugh and keep them entertained.
Scott Adams has accomplished a rare feat. In his wildly successful cartoon strip, Dilbert, he has transformed the daily drudgery of the workplace into a fresh, comic commentary on life. Consider the cast: a devious and egomaniacal dog who fully intends to rule the world, a former lab rat so eager for acceptance that he's willing to work as a temp, a cat that is an evil HR director -- and these are just the animals in Dilbert's world. Mix in the frustrated title character, his clueless pointy-haired boss, and an office full of insecure and dissatisfied white-collar workers and you get the hottest comic strip in the '90s. Adams has truly found a way to relate the sometimes unbelievable craziness of the business world. Since Dilbert first gave a voice to discontented cubicle dwellers in 1989, the strip has consistently appeared at the top of comic page popularity polls. Today, the world's fastest growing cartoon is in more than 1,700 newspapers in 51 countries and 19 languages; it also can be found stuck on office bulletin boards, personal computer monitors, and break-room refrigerators throughout the working world. And, of course, Dilbert appears in bestselling calendars, mugs, and books -- including six strip collections that have been on the New York Times best-seller list. This volume brings readers more of the bizarre fun. In it, they'll marvel at the escapades of Antina the non-stereotypical woman, who takes apart the office coffee machine "just for fun". They'll witness new-manager Ted, who just happens to have a beard growing from his forehead. And they'll recoil from Camping Carl, the office's nonstop self-storyteller, whom Dilbert manages to evade only by taking to hiscubicle escape tunnel. No one captures modern office life like Adams, a former Pacific Bell employee. Dilbert evokes many laughs, tears, and "How did he know about our company?" comments from workers while at the same time appealing to supervisors who are certain they don't personally commit these managerial faux pas. "I'm Not Anti-Business, I'm Anti-Idiot" is guaranteed to deliver much, much more of what fans love most about Dilbert.
Macanudo #2 collects more of Liniers's great daily strip (the first selection of which appeared in volume #1). And like the first volume, this new collection is marked by subtle charm, existential wit, a playful sensibility, and a probing mind. Dive in for more Henrietta and her cat, Fellini; more Mandlebaum, the teddy bear; more sensitive robot, and much else besides! Liniers (Ricardo Siri) is an acclaimed and well-beloved Argentine cartoonist, whose wildly popular daily strip Macanudo (""cool"") has been published in the Argentine newspaper La Nación for the past ten years. This strip has won him fans throughout the world and comparisons to the cartoonist heavyweights Charles Schultz and Bill Watterson. Liniers also travels around the world with musician Kevin Johansen, painting on big canvases on stage while Johansen makes music. Sometimes, they switch places. Liniers has over 3,600 published comic strips and has published over twenty-five books in Spanish, and more than ten books in nine countries from Brazil to the Czech Republic. His first book to be published in English, The Big Wet Balloon, has been both a critical and popular success and was selected as a best book of 2013 by Parents Magazine. And the fourth volume of his Macanudo to appear in French was recently selected for the 2014 Angouléme Festival. Together with his wife Angie, Liniers also founded the comics publisher La Editorial Común. Liniers lives in Buenos Aires, Argentina, with his wife and three daughters-Matilda, Clementina, and Emma. No penguins though. . . yet.
