About the Book

Reader’s Promotion: We Think We Think: Captions to the Cartoons We Live, Volume One is a potpourri of essays by author H. Alan Tansson. Runyonesque, in a light-hearted, pickle-barrel style, Tansson has forked up anecdotes from the brine: a mobster who kept fiddling with his gun, a go-go dancer who performed from the ductwork, and a sailor who kept forgetting his ship. Discover old-time corner-store philosophy reinvented for the Twenty-first Century—complete with theoretical pretzels to twist your view of everyday experience. You can explore life through bingo, life by doodling, life with sneezes, snores, and orgasms. Friendship, braggadocio, people-watching, art, cognition; you’ll find a bit of everything here, except for religion, politics, and education—which is in the book next-door, Volume Two which is entitled Antidisestablishmentarianistically Speaking. Disbeliever’s Promotion: Having learned you don’t think at all, you’ll be bursting with new ideas. Your blogs will rip the questions off tired old walls. Freed from cultural incrustations, others’ arguments will drop to the floor as your voice ricochets across the web, and your witty twitters bring thousands their frabjous song! So if you’re anxious for a mental renaissance, this book will do it, we think … that is, We Think We Think.
