Hayjax is in Nottingham

This is what happens when you drop a Canadian into the East Midlands.

How to make Hayjax laugh

leave a comment »

I’m currently working on a project that involves some research on “how-to” ebooks, and the titles currently on offer at Lulu, a self-publishing site, are giving me giggle-fits.  A sampling:

  • How to summon demons
  • How to speak southern
  • How to succeed in murder
  • How to breathe
  • How to be Irish
  • How to get your husband to listen to you
  • How to argue with an economist
  • How to pass a polygraph guaranteed
  • How to make a snake hook
  • How to cheat on your wife
  • How to keep chickens at home
  • How to woo a spinster
  • How to work with a dragon
  • How to appreciate a Vietnam vet
  • How to seduce a Texan

I just want to retreat with all of these titles for a deluxe makeover weekend and emerge on Monday a southern-speaking, chicken-keeping, snake-hooking, demon-summoning murderer.  Now that’s the kind of superhero this crazy, messed-up world needs more of.
