The Best of the World's Worst

World Class Blunders, Screw-ups, Oddballs, Misfits And Rotten Ideas
A non fiction book by

Bizarre, obscure and even morbid, the sizable wit of Marvel comics innovator Stan Lee is clearly evidenced in The Best of the World's Worst--a compilation of completely off-the-wall, humorous and sometimes grisly real-life events and occurrences that have transpired throughout history. Inept executioners, incompetent scientists, various lunkheads, politicians and could-that-have-really-happeneds are featured in this laugh out loud shocker.

This offbeat collection is sure to amuse and put a sunnier outlook on any disposition. It just doesn't get worse than this! Such as:
  • Pentagon's yearly travel budget is $4.3 billion--$2.3 just for paperwork!
  • What nation's citizens average 52 gallons of beer per year?
  • Woman on welfare for 26 years receives $1 million every year!
  • Finland censors Donald Duck for baring tail-feathers!
  • Norwegian King put to death by Danish Queen for proposing marriage!
  • The Miss Swamp Cabbage and Ugly Mule Day competitions!
