Summertime Book Review with Dr. Zaius

Everybody is blogging book reviews this summer! Well, Dr. Zaius has always been one to blindly follow the herd, so I shall review this book that I recently finished, "The Manatee," by Nancy Bruff. I was actually disappointed in this book. It is the tepid tale of a love triangle between a crusty sea pirate, a lonely widow and an endangered aquatic marine mammal.

Trust me, the old girl really put the "cow" in sea cow, and I'm not talking about the manatee! There was a rather exciting scene where the evil sea monkeys stormed the local grocery store and demanded both paper and plastic, but on the whole I found the book was rather disappointing.

The worst part of the book? No lesbian pirates! For a frank and adult discussion of the love between humans and aquatic marine mammals, might I instead suggest this refreshing website, Horny Manatee.

Some other great links:

This is really fun to watch! a video of MSNBC’s David Shuster Grilling A Cheney Apologist. Yay!

Watch a video of Rep. Rahm Emanuel (D-IL) announce that the upcoming Vote to defund Cheney’s office to be held this week.

The Media Thinks you are a Moron! An Associated Press headline reads: "World Awaits Paris Hilton’s Return." The only thing about Paris Hilton that I am "awaiting" is for her to get off my freaking TV set! The commercials are more interesting that news about Paris Hilton. Also, CNN canceled its interview with Michael Moore about his new health care documentary SiCKO to interview Hotel heiress and reality TV star Paris Hilton. Curses! This is why president Bush gave Hilton the Presidential Medal of Freedom!

Poor Ron Christie! Either those studio lights were hot as Schuster grilled him or he was worried.

Sweat on the brow.

I watched it as it happened and had to hit rewind a couple of times just to thoroughly soak in the fun.

Up next today? Chris Matthews is promising to "stake" Ann Coulter out in the sun.

Chris Matthews is more likely to "stake" Ann Coulter to the lunch tab. What she really needs is a stake through the heart ala Mina Harker.

Me Sawbones Z, Th' Cap'n thanks ye for wishin' this book had Th' Cap'n was in th'starrin' role - o'course, it would have been rated at least 'NC-17", but it would've been a mega-hit.

I think that mantee fantasy fiction should alway contain a section on lesbian pirates and the good Cap'n, but I also feel that way about any sea-faring tales, dontcha know. ;o)
