Girlpants and Gasoline
 

Missives from Post-Postmodern America

Authored by David E. Zucker

A collection of essays digesting popular culture's obsession with the real and the real-ish. How is Miley Cyrus like Batman? Are Transformers genderfluid? Is Jersey Shore the Shakespearean tragedy of our generation?

From the boy who was crowned Star Wars trivia champion at Celebration Denver 1999, and the man who brought you the #1 Google search result for "Astrophysics Pick-Up Lines" comes this series of ramblings on the nature of what we like and why we like it.

From the microeconomy of the Jedi Order, to the philosophical ramifications of post-colonialism in LEGO commercials, Zucker has wasted his time agonizing over these questions so you don't have to, offering up an intellectual buffet equal parts sarcasm and scientific analysis.

"A++ would write again." - David E. Zucker
