Two widely published humor columnists and ""bad boys"" of academia take their wit and wisdom to dazzling new lows in this irreverent send-up of highbrow literary culture. At last, the thinking person's take on the life of the mind in today's increasingly mindless age. Sense and Nonsensibility pokes fun at everyone from spoof-proof scholars to pompous professors; from anal-retentive authors to plagiarizing poets; from snake-oil therapists to bestselling illiterati. This singular collection by Professors Lawrence Douglas and Alexander George brings together their most popular pieces, along with many brand-new ones, including: The Academy Awards for novels -- with categories for ""Best Female Protagonist -- Doomed,"" ""Best Narrator -- Unreliable,"" and ""Best Novel -- Unfinishable by Reader"" Home Shopping University -- offering the greatest ideas in Western history at rock-bottom prices I'm Okay, I'm Okay: Accepting Narcissism -- the best in ""Self-helplessness books"" The Penis Orations -- Iron Man's answer to The Vagina Monologues ""Ask the Academic Ethicist"" -- their notorious advice column, which has shocked higher education
