9780345381118: Return of the Straight Dope

"When inquiring minds want to know, there is someone to turn to for an answer."
WALL STREET JOURNAL
Cecil Adams's first two books covered everything from the real lyrics to "Louie, Louie," to whatever became of Einstein's brain. You probably thought you couldn't stand any more genius in one lifetime. Well, fasten your intellectual seat belts! Inside you'll find 100% guaranteed top quality brilliance on every page, as he winsomely and wisely answers questions like these: Can people really hear radio broadcasts through their teeth? What does Queen Elizabeth carry in that purse, anyway? So how DO porcupines mate? And many more. When you hear the answers, you'll be glad someone asked the questions.

From the Publisher:

Cecil Adams is at it again. His first two books covered everything from the real lyrics to "Louie, Louie" to whatever became of Einstein's brain. (Answer: it's in a bunch of bottles in Weston, Missouri). You've probably thought you couldn't stand any more. But wait! Can you bear to live another minute without knowing:

Can people really hear radio broadcasts through their teeth?
What is a merkin?
So how do porcupines mate?
What got into this guy Phillips that made him think we needed a new kind of screwdriver?

And there's a raunchy chapter on sex education that may put an end to romance forever.
