50 SHADES OF BARRY:
Interview: Dave Barry: You Can Date Boys When You're Forty (Ed Driscoll, April 6th, 2014, PJ Media)
[T]he title of Dave's latest book is based on reading the Riot Act to his daughter: You Can Date Boys When You're Forty: Dave Barry on Parenting and Other Topics He Knows Very Little About.Perhaps Barry is overreacting just a minuscule amount to the situation. On the other hand, you'd be feeling a bit harried too, if you recently returned from the following nightmare scenarios:Going to your first Justin Bieber concert and listening to a stadium full of teenage girls shouting "I loooooove you!!!! I loooooove you, Justin!!!!!!" into your ear all night long.Paying a fortune for tickets to take your daughter to said Justin Beiber concert, only for her to eventually discover that the Bieb is an idiot. Which Barry had pointed out to her before plunking out money for the concert.Pondering what women see in 50 Shades of Grey, and asking your wife if she wants to try out the book's scenario.Visiting Israel on a quest for free Wi-Fi throughout the Holy Land.Rappelling down an Israeli desert cliff and risking pooping on a rabbi due to total loss of sphincter control.Having people approach you constantly to praise your article on the importance of colonoscopies.The easy way for first time authors to promote their works by get booked on nationally-watched network talk shows by showing up at the studio door unannounced 15 minutes before airtime.All of which we'll discuss in our latest interview, and more.
