Dear friends of IsBlog, here is a wonderful opportunity, just for you, the opportunity of a lifetime!
For 15 years I have been churning out these blog postings, mainly very serious stuff about the Middle East, Israel and the like, and occasionally I write a humorous piece about my troubles dealing with floods, termites and the like, and what happens, everyone tells me that they prefer these attempts at putting real experiences in a humorous light more than the serious stuff. This is kind of disheartening for a student of political science. But, I get the message, I realize that my true vocation should be in the realm of satire, of diy humor, like the one about the aliens taking over my washing machine. A bit-far fetched, but funny. To quote Jimmy in “Better Call Saul,” “I am but a humble vessel, the muse speaks thru me.”
So I decided to bring together all the humorous items that I have posted over the past years in IsBlog and see if they make a book. I found 100 such articles, all short about 1-2 pages, that take up 244 pages (of a standard pocket book size). I was going to publish this, under the title “Humorous Husbandry,” but then I had second thoughts. I thought, who would really want to pay real money to read (or re-read) this stuff (no epithets needed).
Then I had a brain-wave, why not find out by the direct e-method. Ask the readers. So here’s the deal of a lifetime. If you want to read or have this collection of humorous postings, dealing with kittens, floods, termites and friendly plumbers, all you have to do is send me an e-mail message and NIS 40 (or $10 or GBP 7) and I will send you the whole book (as a PDF file) by return on e-mail. To send the money you can use Paypal (I have an account at firstname.lastname@example.org) or send the money to me by any other means. In exchange you will receive a collector’s item that will grow in value and fun over the years (only kidding). Be the first on your e-block to own a copy of this delightful, crazy collection. You won’t be sorry!
