Meet the man who vacuums bewildered prairie dogs out of their burrows; a smug, carbon-neutral eco-couple; a teenage girl who invites 45,000 MySpace friends to a house party; the author of a business book entitled "Highly Successful Secrets to Standing on a Corner Holding Up a Golf Sale Sign;" and a man whose attempts to teach softball to a group of indolent advertising executives sparks an international crisis.

Praise
"The pieces are genuinely funny, but it's a humor that mostly comes out of character and story, not from jokes and punch lines....Hall...is a masterful humorist, and this collection of offbeat stories is sure to produce public displays of hilarity." (starred review)
