Description

"Discover illustrated profiles of the weird, outrageous (and true!) tales from American history that don't appear in school textbooks. From the creators of the comedy/history podcast The Dollop, The United States of Absurdity presents short, informative, and hilarious stories of the most outlandish (but true) people, events, and more from United States history. Comedians Dave Anthony and Gareth Reynolds cover the weird stories you didn't learn in history class, such as 10-Cent Beer Night, the Jackson Cheese, and the Kentucky Meat Shower, accompanied by full-page illustrations that bring each historical "milestone" to life in full-color"--
