When a gold coin heist turns out badly, a pair of idiotic crooks hook-up with some moronic thieves (and a movie star) in order to steal the secret KFC chicken recipe. Along the way they reveal (among many other things) the connection between Gilligan´s Island and the devil, what Salman Rushdie and Elvis have in common with Col. Sanders, why Betty was never a vitamin, and what Bootsy Collins does in his spare time. It also deals with the whole ´´why did the chicken cross the road´´ conundrum. 1. Language: English.

But until now, no one was brave enough to bring forth the truth about the connection between modern religion and aliens from another galaxy!

Now, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the landmark Freakonomics, comes this curated collection from the most readable economics blog in the world. Why don´t flight attendants get tipped? If you were a terrorist, how would you attack? And why does KFC always run out of fried chicken? Over the past decade, Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner have published more than 8,000 blog posts on Freakonomics.com. Now the very best of this writing has been carefully curated into one volume, the perfect solution for the millions of listeners who love all things Freakonomics. Discover why taller people tend to make more money; why it´s so hard to predict the Kentucky Derby winner; and why it might be time for a sex tax (if not a fat tax). You´ll also learn a great deal about Levitt and Dubner´s own quirks and passions. Surprising and erudite, eloquent and witty, When to Rob a Bank demonstrates the brilliance that has made their books an international sensation. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Stephen J.

Danny: The portrait of a surreal killer. Each one of us has an invisible space alien perched upon our shoulders controlling our thoughts. This is not a good thing! Danny used to be a sad and lonely man, but now he is happy. Because now Danny has a dog of his very own. A nice big dog with a waggy tail and a smiley face. The dog’s name is Demolition but only Danny can see him. Men from The Ministry of Serendipity are monitoring Danny’s every move. They have a special agent on the case, his name is Parton Vrane and he is half man and half cockroach. Described as a nightmare journey to Hell and back, with only a brief stop off at a KFC for a quick bucket of grub and a visit to the toilet, A Dog Called Demolition is a genuine horror story. Where Silence of the Lambs and Seven merely dipped their toes in terror’s icy waters, Robert Rankin boldly takes off his lurex sock and really puts his foot in it. 1. Language: English.
