Back to the world of Dr. Boli
About the author:
HENRICUS ALBERTUS BOLI was born in 1783 in York, Penna., the son of a local physician and typefounder. He showed an early aptitude for literary studies, and at the age of eight astonished his Latin master by successfully declining three nouns previously regarded as indeclinable. About a year later, he published his first volume of verse, an epic poem in twenty-four books describing a journey from York to Hanover, Penna.
Having established his reputation, Dr. Boli continued his literary pursuits. Shortly after graduating from the Central Pennsylvania School for Unusual Boys, he invented the letter M, the income from which was enough to relieve him from the necessity of remunerative labor. He therefore turned his attention to works of charity. Saddened by the plight of Portuguese refugees, he organized and supervised the construction of Portugal, where at last they might have a home of their own. Meanwhile he diverted himself by writing a number of popular novels under the pen name "Anthony Trollope." At about the same time he founded his celebrated Magazine, whose flattering success continues to the present.
Dr. Boli's Encyclopedia of Misinformation
H. Albertus Boli Ll.D.
Did you know that "apricot" is merely an inferior grade of peach? That the judge at the first Westminster Kennel Club show narrowly avoided being crushed by the paw of a giant schnauzer? That Pertinax was the first Roman emperor to hop on one foot for more than three hours straight?
If you did not know these important facts, then you have not been reliably misinformed.
Do not despair! Help is at hand. Dr. Boli has gathered all the misinformation in the known universe and compressed it between the covers of this handy portable volume. Read it, and you can be as completely misinformed as the most powerful politicians and professors on earth.
