Inhaltsangabe: A collection of 175 original stories like the one below, each culminating in a pun (or spoonerism). The puns range from good (?bad? in pun parlance) to excellent (?horrid?). The stories are unrelated to one another and with few exceptions, are no longer than a single page?making it easy to put down. Perfect for people whose days are busy and complex; ideal for the hospital patient with limited wake time. The book features a foreword that describes how an intuition about enhancing humor value of fables led to a series of empirical studies. The resulting evidence guided the composition of these tales?hence the reason for calling them "scientifically crafted." The author?s experience in writing research abstracts can be sensed in the moderately tight writing style; it is not breezy reading, but is aimed at the sophisticated lover of language who is acquainted with familiar phrases, clichés, and aphorisms. A nut and spice farm occupied some lovely rolling countryside. Once during a freezing rain storm, the farmer's pet rabbit wandered out and had last been seen heading toward the pickling spice plots. Everyone on the farm was frantic because many of those young plants resembled carrots, the damage from the rabbit could far exceed any wreckage from the storm. The straw boss was adamant to his workers: "Get out there and find Beatrice and keep looking even if it takes all night. Check everywhere; search over dill and hail."
