From the Publisher:

John Train's "remarkable" books have been described by the New York Times as "hilarious masterpieces" and by the London Times as "amazingly rich." They make perfect gifts. Crazy Quilt is a new collection of outrageous and comic imbroglios on such subjects as travel, the high life, bureaucracy and language.

A Turkish restaurant proposes: Brain Salad and Virgin Lips. A jumbo jet is forced to turn back when pigs in the hold fart so exuberantly that they set off the gas alarm. Princess Anne and Capt. Mark Phillips receive a weird collection of wedding presents. In the business directory, Train lists Cheatham and Steele, Bankers (Oregon); Dr. Dotti, Psychiatrist (Rome, Italy); and Argue & Phibbs, Solicitors (Ireland). The Financial Times reports a discussion between Australian business partners that turned ugly when one man has his nose bitten off after sinking his teeth into the other's thumb.
