The Great American Bathroom Book, II:
How come I never heard of number one?
Just who among the literati knew
Reading the classics could be such fun?
They weren't published in the capital of hype—
No, not in New York, but Salt Lake City!
626 pages of five-point type,
Which, in terms of bite size, is itty-bitty.
“Single-Sitting Summaries of Great Books,”
Classics, from the dawn of civilization on,
Heavy fare the average Mormon overlooks,
Now digested for him for the john—
Classics he can read in just one sitting:
The Catch 22 is he must be shitting.
Robert Forrey, 2011
