Pun Control – SEVEN “Best in CRASS”

by Lawrence J. J. Leonard

Some books on the Must Read list have titles that lend themselves to really good food and drink. We may have even played with a title or two in secret.
No reason to be shy about that here.
It’s just as much of a challenge to have a go at the authors.

Could this be a good time for a dose of simethicone?
