Perry, David R.: Dr. Lewis B. Turndevelt's Big Book of Forewords. v1, 7 Mar 2008
Dr. Lewis B. Turndevelt's Big Book of Forewords is a fictitious collection of fictitious forewords written by this fictitious guy, Dr. Turndevelt."
This book is really funny here is an example from the foreword for Images of Cutesy: Vol. 6 Fuzzy Puppies and Northeaster Wildflowers:
Let me set the scene for you: It's late on a Tuesday evening, and you've just finished watching Schindler's List after reading Old Yeller, all the while fielding phone calls from telemarketers trying to talk you into life insurance in case you or anyone in your family bites the big one. So emotionally you're a wreck. And to top it off, you don't even have any comfort food lying around - namely chocolate-mocha-fudge-espresso-cookie-dough ice cream - to help ease the gnawing sensation that eats away at the pit of your stomach.
If any part of the above scenario describes you, go ahead and throw in the towel because that's just pathetic. However, if you are free from that concentrated amount of depression, but can still identify with the overall sentiment, then this latest volume in the Images of Cutesy series is for you.
For years, the Cutesy series was the last-ditch, fail-safe measure used in sanitariums to keep some of the more dangerous inmates safely in their padded rooms, instead of out roaming around the cafeteria in a desperate search for sharp eating utensils. But now that same prescription-strength level of visual comfort can be yours, all in convenient hardback form. So settle in underneath a cheap blanket and tighten the straps, because you're in for a great ride!
