My Homage To Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader

Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader. This incredible series of books are one of my main inspirations for starting a blog in the first place. I was always extremely happy upon buying one of these books. They are magnificent tomes that hold crazy, wonderful, and at times, ridiculous facts. I highly recommend picking up one of these books ASAP, as it will have you entertained for hours. This post will be covering some of my favorite facts from the series as a sign of respect for the Bathroom Readers’ Institute. I am going to divide each set of facts into the main article in which they are featured. Now, as Uncle John always says, “Go with the flow”!

  • My First Job: This page covered the first jobs of famous celebrities. The article is featured on page 43 of Uncle John’s Triumphant 20th Anniversary Bathroom Reader from 2007.  My favorite facts included; “Steve McQueen was a towel boy in a brothel.”, “Chris Rock was a busboy at Red Lobster.”, and “Walt Disney mashed apples in a jelly factory.”

 

  •  Not For Export: This page displayed many foreign products whose names were    lost in translation. The article is featured on page 99 of Uncle John’s Biggest Ever Bathroom Reader from 2002. The products included; “Ass Glue” a Chinese patent, “Homo Sausage” a Japanese beef jerky, and “Shitto” a spicy pepper sauce from Ghana. 

 

  • Games & Gambling: An article all about the crazy world of gambling and games in general. The article is found on page seven of Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader Extraordinary Book Of Facts And Bizarre Information from 2006. The crazy facts included; “There are 635,013,559,599 possible hands in the game of bridge.” “If you add up all the numbers of the roulette wheel (1 to 36), the sum is 666.”, and “One in four compulsive gamblers is a woman.”

 

  • I’m Gonna Wallace! & Cockney Slang: These are very interesting articles about Cockney slang terms. Cockney Slang is found on pages 129-130, while I’m Gonna Wallace is found on page 424 of Uncle John’s Triumphant 20th Anniversary Bathroom Reader from 2007. Some fascinating slang terms include; “Mutt and Jeff”, which means “Deaf.” “Trouble and strife”, which translates to “wife.” “Loaf”, which means “head”, and can also be said as “Loaf of Bread.” “Wallace”, means “to barf”, and is short for “Wallace and Grommit.” Lastly, for some reason, “Tom Cruise”, means “booze.”

 

  • Flubbed Headlines: This is a list of outrageous, but true newspaper headlines. Flubbed Headlines is found on page 34 of Uncle John’s Triumphant 20th Anniversary Bathroom Reader from 2007. Some of the wacky headlines include; “Woman Improving After Fatal Crash.” “TV ads boost eating of obese children by 130%.” “Dr. Fuchs off to the Antarctic.” Then, the most punny entry, “Suicide squirrels driving utilities nuts.”
