SLIPS THAT PASS IN THE NIGHT is a compilation of 564 student bloopers assembled over 40 years of college English teaching by now-retired Professor William Betts. The book is very neatly organized into 19 chapters, each introduced by one or more epigraphs. Imaginative illustrations add to the fun. In black-and-white, on top-quality paper.

SLIPS THAT PASS IN THE NIGHT is the funniest book we have ever printed.
Laurel Valley GraphicsFrom the Author:
If you like Yogi Berra, you'll love these college student bloopers--564 outrageous miscues that out-Berra Berra. All genuine, just exactly as the students composed them. Slips like this one: "She stepped back to get a look at herself from the rear." And this one: "As you step through the door the fireplace strikes you in the eye." And this one, from THE DAILY BULLETIN: "Lost--one black man's umbrella." And this one: "Robert Frost is unique in that he sees the same things that we see." And this one: "Not all country people are bumpkins. I live on a farm and I know how to milk a cow, however I live near the main rode, can read, go to college, and occasionally I even hear a news broadcast." The instructor's marginal coment, where he has made one, is respectfully preserved, and adds to the fun. The imaginatve illustrations add even more fun. SLIPS is a great gift book, a neat book for the summer cottage or the winter-in-Florida condo.
