Found in the same stack

What's the implication here?

Of course, the real reason you need to know how to be your own bodyguard is to protect you from your your fellow inmates, when you're doing time behind bars for assault with a crowbar.

Another must-read

And here I always though blurbs were to encourage us to read a book:
The True Story of Alice B. Toklas is a deconstructive excursus, theoretically astute and cannily playful, that juxtaposes three autobiographical texts by and about Toklas including her famous cookbook and Stein's 'autobiography' of her partner. In this study, Anna Linzie has addressed and finessed some tenets of literary scholarship, including generic hierarchies, singular versus collaborative authorship, assumptions of value, decorums between critic and her subject, and critical reception as a mode of invention. With this fascinating addition to the literature concerning Gertrude Stein and her circle, Linzie produces various challenges to the notions of 'true story.'

These birds will not only peck out your eyes, but they'll take your souuulll.

Because men with spots are just so sexy


Or not. Ew.
