Does a Bear Sh*t In The Woods by Caroline Taggart

In case you were wondering, no, Does a Bear Sh*t in the Woods? is not a scientific treatise on bear scatology.  Instead, it is a playful look at rhetorical questions from Caroline Taggart:

For those of us who have long wondered where bears go to take care of their business, if the Pope is actually Catholic, or whether anyone is really made of money, Caroline Taggart provides the answers to these and a host of previously unanswerable questions.

From the most profound questions of philosophy to queries of geography and science, this deadpan book is full of hilarious information you never knew you needed including:

What’s love got to do with it?
How many roads must a man walk down before you call him a man?
Where does the time go?
Can a leopard change his spots?

Unlike some her previous books this one is not really a reference or education book more a combination droll humor an informational miscellany. Basically, Taggart muses on famous rhetorical questions discussing factoids or statistics she finds pertinent and adding in her own take on life, history and language.

If you like quirky books that can be read in small snippets, or find humorous miscellany entertaining,  this is one to add to your collection.
