Anguished English Calendar, Daily Boxed, Pomegranate
"Handmade gifts for the hard-to-find person." "Nature Walks on Thursday Evenings." Hilariously absurd, puzzling, even poetic, these are among the delightful disasters gleaned by Richard Lederer from advertisements, news headlines, and other everyday sources. Dr. Lederer cohosts the public radio show A Way with Words and has written widely about language and humor. Here he shares 313 accidental assaults on the English language (Saturdays and Sundays share a page), each a real-world sighting. This 2006 Daily Boxed calendar was published by Pomegranate.
