The crackpot staff of the Bathroom Readers’ Institute is out of control. After 25 years of laboriously researching facts and verifying them and then verifying them again, Uncle John’s mischievous minions decided to blow off a little steam. The result: Fake Facts. It’s stuff that isn’t even remotely true we just made it sound real. Why? Because it’s really funny. Fake Facts is 228 pages of origins, facts, weird products, strange diseases, kooky fads, slang terms, historical oddities, and other fascinating bits of information that are too good to be true . . . because they aren’t true. So put aside your BS detector and settle in to read about:

The ill-fated Vice President For a Day” for kids program
How the overfishing of dolphins led to the canned tuna industry
Crumble,” plaidsy,” benji,” and other British slang
Abandoned rules of early baseball, and obscure rules of grammar
How early vegetarians gave Boston its Beantown” nickname
The secret superpowers of twins
James Joyce’s unpublished sci-fi trilogy
Unicorns, wizards, and pirates galore

And lots more falsified fun!
