With his best-selling track record, Gregory is one of AMP#65533;e(tm)s most successful non-cartoon humorists. Stupid American History was #12 on the New York Times paperback best-seller list in July 2009.

From absurd 911 calls to presidential philosophizing and foolish felons, Leland Gregory generates the best laughs by exposing the worst of human nature. Collectively, his humor collections have sold more than 500,000 copies and generated two New York Times best-sellers. Inside S Is for Stupid , Gregory sets his sights on the stupidest of stupid with a "best-of" collection featuring 50 percent new material and 50 percent fan favorites.

As Gregory's largest collection yet, S Is for Stupid features more than 350 pages of outrageous stories, trivia, and factoids organized alphabetically by topic. Such entries include:

* The following is a doctor's actual diagnostic notation: The patient is married but sexually active.

* "Shooting Reported at Firing Range" --the State, Columbia, South Carolina, August 4, 2006

* Arrested for public urination in Bowling Green, Ohio: Mr. Joshua Pees. --the Sentinel-Tribune , Bowling Green, Ohio, September 5, 2001

Because the stories Gregory chronicles are just that unbelievable, each anecdote, quote, or factoid is presented with relevant background information, including its verified news source.

You know, had the stupidity in Leland Gregory's book "S Is For Stupid" actually been "stupid-funny" stuff (rather than just plain "stupid-stupid" crap), then, yes, I wouldn't have hesitated, in the least, to give it a significantly higher rating than I did.

But - From art, to god, to racism, to tasers, to zero tolerance, and beyond - As this embarrassingly stupid book stood (with its A-Z stupidity) - The only thing that it made me wonder about, while reading it, was just how many gullible people there are out there who actually got sucked into forking out fifteen bucks to buy this utter stupidity.

Anyway - If you choose to do so, check out this totally unfunny book of nonsense for yourself - But, hey, from my own personal viewpoint, I thought it was a very stupid bore. Indeed.
