Surf This Book

[Link.] I never got "Steal This Book" because I'd feel like a phony buying it at Barnes & Noble, or wherever, and my reaction to the suggestion in the title was, "Don't tell me what to do." Anyhow, the text is on the Web, and it can be funny, light reading, such as the following passage:
Another good bit is to rent a safe deposit box (only about $7.00 a year) in a bank using a phony name. They usually only need a signature and don't ask for identification. When you get a box, deposit a good size dead fish inside the deposit box, close it up and return it to its proper niche. From then on, forget about it. Now think about it, in a few months there is going to be a hell-of-a-smell from your small investment. It's going to be almost impossible to trace and besides, they can never open the box without your permission. Since you don't exist, they'll have no alternative but to move away. Invest in the Stank of Amerika savings program. Just check out Lake Erie and you'll see saving fish isn't such a dumb idea. If you get caught, tell them you inherited the fish from your grandmother and it has sentimental value.
More subversive humor can be found at the archive. [Link.]
