Confessions of a Malcontent

Joe Queenan confesses that "...jackasses, pedants, buffoons, and charlatans have always been a clear and present danger to humanity, and that they are not merely a modern health hazard...Proving, once again, that there is nothing new under the sun. Especially if it involves morons.".
His book, "Malcontents", then goes on to celebrate those writers who were "masters of getting up peoples's noses", from Aristophanes to Oscar Wilde.
Queenan even makes a sideways reference to Machiavelli as the "Florentine Chuckle King". (Go figure.)
Particularly refreshing is Joe's meticulous rationale for his editorial opinions and selections: "I felt like it.".
It's comforting to know that I am not alone.
