Do you always struggle to see the best in a situation? Does it seem like it's raining both outside and in? If you're blind to the lighter side of life then you're clearly a grump, but don't despair-you're in good company. Are You a Miserable Old Bastard? is an amusing celebration of the grouchiness in life, featuring wittily downbeat sayings from famous grumps including P. J. O'Rourke, Dorothy Parker, Michael Moore, H. L. Mencken, Fran Lebowitz, Winston Churchill, Groucho Marx, and W. C. Fields; pessimistic tales of doom and gloom; advice on ways to spot a naturally grumpy person; fascinating insights into the science of grumpiness; and quotations from literary and fictional gloom-mongers. If you're easily irritated by the annoyances of modern-day living, if it's the little things as well as the big things that drive you crazy, this is definitely the book for you. Topics include: *grumpiness *discontent *moodiness*doom & gloom *pessimism *idiocy*cantankerousness *contempt *loathing
