Is that possible? Could this be the greatest scheme of all time, indie writers doing super-short Kindle books and then using them as a way to write off travel expenses? Which, it turns out, is actually a shotgun in disguise. The lesson learned from Beer, for the second time, is never bring a knife to a gunfight. Epilogue: Beer flies back to the States in a private jet with a naked stewardess who brings him chicken nuggets, peanuts, and beer.
This is from a video of a guy water skiing, and a fish jumps out of the water and tags him right in the nuts. I saw this video, and I laughed. I have to assume he didn't set up a camera intending to record that.
But then it happened. But laugh they did. Same thing for Charles Hinton. There's no laugh track, no narrative build to a joke, no space for anyone to gauge the joke as successful or not. Because it wouldn't be real. Because that hapless dad was real. A real rapping granny, if that was your grandmother, she would be funny. But the staged concept of a rapping granny isn't funny. Charles Hinton's books are absurd, and I suspect they're real. Which, according to my highly unprofessional math, makes them funny.
Not ironically funny. Actually funny. Charles Hinton has a couple dozen titles available. The adventures of Beer just scratch the surface.

You thought the Twinkie defense was outrageous? What about defending your client, a shooter who killed a nun in broad daylight after shooting her, by saying the shooter was merely trying to kill a bat that was hovering above the nun when he lost control of his gun, and the gun went off on accident? Nine times. A professor decides to quit his job, buy a tractor and convert it into a time machine so he can live happily in the pre-Civil-War era.
Are the professor's motives impossibly flawed and stupid? Is it brilliant or stupid to convert a tractor into a time machine rather than building one from whole cloth? Does he get his comeuppance? Boy howdy. I think that we tend to like stuff or not. And then we reverse-engineer the reasons why. We take something we feel subjectively and then come up with objective reasons we love it.
Because we feel like we have to justify our love Madonna!
The enjoyment of a Charles Hinton or a Tommy Wiseau is genuine. It's when we try to explain that enjoyment that we get into the idea of irony. Because enjoying something, that's difficult to explain.
Agent Cold Beer On Assignment (Live it up, Mr. Beer Book 2)
If you asked me to explain why a video of a fish hitting a water skier in the nuts caused a physiological reaction in me laughter , I couldn't begin to explain the base mechanics. All I can really say is that laughs dubbed "ironic" and laughs dubbed "real" sound a hell of a lot alike. They sure feel a hell of a lot alike. Peter Derk lives, writes, and works in Colorado. Buy him a drink and he'll talk books all day. Buy him two and he'll be happy to tell you about the horrors of being responsible for a public restroom.

And he is, as the title says, On Assignment. Normally I don't like to do plot summaries as a review. It kind of ruins the experience, and it's not really a review, review. But in this case, the story is only 6 pages long, and I really feel like the plot speaks for itself. So if you think you might want to read Agent Cold Beer On Assignment, skip the rest of this and go get you some. Cold Beer is tasked with getting close enough to Jack Knife Joe to bring him down, and the way to do that is clearly through winning the beer drinking contest. But before the assignment begins, we stop by Shorty's lab.
One white, one blue, one brown, one black Beer then uses exactly none of these devices to win the drinking contest. Which is the big build-up scene that lasts for all of two sentences.
