About this Item

New, unread, still encased in shrink-wrap. The impish Brtish author describes his gay-oriented humor anthology this way: "This is a collection of non-heterosexually orientated oddments and giggly vignettes. It will appeal to those who have occasionally sat on the moon and poked fun at the human race, to those who love and respect our politicians (the best that money can buy, all of whom have passed rigorous self-selection processes), and to those who notice the daily abrasions of established assumptions (just for a change, could all those who do fit the established paradigm please do all they can to make themselves known.). The collection opens with the evolution of mankind (Trevor the Axe Grinder') and closes with the true cause of this paradoxical anomaly (Ooh, Bless Me!'): a couple of cavemen go out of their way to incite hostility by inventing caves, the wheel and the Labrador dog, while Adam and Eva join the more divorces than marriages' set after carelessly propagating an entire species for which they have made no domestic provision (incidental children). Cucumber-sandwiched between these covers is a representative confection of stock-broking cows, mooning Martians, huntin'-shootin'-fishin' New Labour MPs, bread-baking Orang-utans, frock-enabled space-captains and humanist Beelzebubs." This engaging book is seldom seen in the U.S. Runningduck is the nom de plume of Ian Hutson, who also uses the moniker of Revolting Peasant in his occasional eBay commerce. Size: 8vo -- 8.5 In. Tall.

About this title

Synopsis:

Still Barking begins in the primordial sludge, drops down from the trees, evolves through the quintessentially English situation of Belch and Squeal (Butler and Chauffeur to a left-wing Member of Parliament) and eventually passes out gracefully on a mountain-top at the end of all time. Discover what mankind actually did with the very first opposable thumb, who it was that invented toast, the whee! (later to become the "wheel") and the golden Labrador dawg (in the USA you know them as "dogs"). Ride with a couple of drunken gay Martians on holiday in Manchester and brave the stock market with sentient moo-cows (again, in the USA you know them as simply "cows" because you're more butch) Check out what the Captain of the frontier spacecraft did when he tucked his dress in his knickers by mistake - in public. Explore the emotions of Sebastian, the Orang-utan who escaped from a zoo on a stolen bicycle and puzzle over relativistic physics alongside a humanist Beelzebub.

From the Back Cover:

Still Barking is a collection of non-heterosexually orientated oddments and giggly vignettes. It will appeal to those who have occasionally sat on the moon and poked fun at the human race, to those who love and respect our politicians (the best that money can buy) and to those who notice the daily abrasions of established assumptions. A couple of cavemen go out of their way to incite hostility by inventing toast, the wheel and the Labrador dog. Adam and Eve live at the opposite ends of time - but do visit regularly. Stock-broking cows, mooning Martians, hunting shooting fishing New Labour Members of Parliament, bread-baking Orang Utans, frock-enabled space-captains and humanist Beelzebubs abound.
