We had so many great books come in this week that we couldn’t narrow them down to one for our BOTW. So we narrowed them down to the two that gave us the heartiest laugh – “Asses of the World” and “A CLAW to Remember.”
“Asses of the World” is exactly that – a humorous collection of photos of donkeys taken across the globe. Aside from the fact that the photos are actually rather stunning, the captions for each photo are downright hilarious. From Kenya, to Ethiopia, to Jerusalem, author and photographer Jake Warga has created a world class “PhotoAssay.”
From the enduring international asses we move on to our second book, “A CLAW to Remember” by the 2008 Charlottesville Lady Arm Wrestlers. CLAW proclaims themselves as a sort of “wiki-theater”, a “spontaneously generated, self organized circus, made by amateurs for the benefit of our community.” From Rosie the Wrist Twister to Debbie “the Debutante” Danger, these ladies know how to have a good time and do it right. Who knew arm wrestling could be so fun!?!
