Encyclopedia of Bad Taste"
by Jane & Michael Stern
The A to Z of bad taste.
Accordion music to zoot suits, fuzzy dice to roller derby. The kitsch,
the strange, the weird and the just plain tacky. This book goes beyond
each fad to the core of why elements of bad taste endure. It's also pretty
darn scarry to see the extremes that our culture will go. Are we really
any better off since the invention of cheese in a can or leopard skin jump
suits? Come to think of it, without these things, the American bachelor
we celebrate would really not be here. We, my friends, are the last bastion
of hope when it comes to bad taste. So hang up that velvet painting and
enjoy! (If you like this book, you might want to get your hands on the
