your brief but lively comments and reviews here:
Just finished your book and truly appreciate how it will save me a bundle in medical expenses. Knowing another sees life's absurdity, I can now stop seeing my shrink and lose one prescription. Thank you!
Reader: Linda in Turlock, CA
* Linda, you'll save a fortune on electro-shock therapy and lobotomies too. It's a miracle cure. Ask your doctor if Last Word on dot com is right for you.
I found a link to your site on Coast 2 Coast am website. I love that show!! I like the banner you created too.
I'm writing a book on paranormal experiences and I need as many people as possible to send me thier true accounts of paranormal or "weird" things that have happened to them.

Reader: Laronda in Shelby, MS
* U r laconic. As they say brevity is the essence of wit, which is why War and Peace is such a knee-slapper.

Just let me know what you think of the book!
I read your book and enjoyed the crazy truths in it
all! I kept having this thought, which I would like to pass on to you: Why don't you
do this live--stand-up comedy?
Thanks for tickeling our hearts.
Reviewer: P. Daniels in Humboldt County
* sounds like a good book, i ought to read it some time.
as for the stand-up, i'm one of those who would find passing a flaming porcupine more comfortable
than public speaking--but maybe.
When you combine superb artistic talent with a wry
sense of humor you get a wonderfully dangerous combination.
Reviewer: Woooooooooody in the Florida Panhandle
* thanks for the kind word. mind if i call you woooooooooo for
Loved your cartoon
and comments, regarding the Martians selling us their bottled water, published
recently on the coast to coast AM website.

* how do you digest a ufo, anyway, dirk? folks will have to
visit your site to see what wonders emanate from bleak, distant, otherworldly
places--like canada -Editor
The wife and I enjoyed it [your book] very much. It
is nice to read good fresh humor that isn't a rehash of old jokes. This would be an
excellent publication to read in a doctor's office. It would help to take your mind off of
a forthcoming root-channel. I am sure it will be well received by those that
enjoy good humor.
Reviewer: J.S. Cherry, in California
* some might gladly prefer the root channel to take their mind off
of the book, i'm afraid. -Editor
I laughed. I cried. I puked my wretched guts out,
tears of agony streaming down my cheeks, mingling with the foul bile at my feet, until my
entire being wished only for the sweet relief of death. Then I laughed some more.
Reviewer: Roger in Huntington Beach, CA
* tastefully understated there, reader. - Editor
I found your site from a link on
wallstreet-online.de and it is very funny.
Comment by: Guntar K., Deutschland
* vielen dank (possibly german?). i mean thanks. -
Read your book online and really enjoyed it. I was happy to make a small
contribution to the Tip Jar. Thank you.
Reviewer: Charles S., Tampa Bay, FL.
* no, thank *you*, charles. we appreciate your kindness.
THE ART BELL "GLUE" GRAPHIC:
Great work on rendering Art's glue incident.
The mental image most vivid from that episode is a shred of his lip sitting in an
ashtray. How weird!
I saw the excepts from you book; you're hilarious! What computing platform do you
use for your illustrations? And will you please excuse the discontinuity between
those two sentences?
Reviewer: Joe C.
* ah shucks joe, thanks. i use corel painter, mostly.
suggested transition between paragraphs: "meanwhile, a schizophrenic in a parallel
universe uttered..." - Editor
Well, I'd certainly not wish to criticize a fellow human cynic but Art didn't actaully glue his lips together.
He got glue on his finger and TOUCHED his lip which then INSTANTLY glued the
aforementioned finger to the lip and the end of the break was coming up and of course he
needed to speak. So he RIPPED the finger loose (with not a little bit of pain) taking
portions of lip with it, and spoke telling us all so we could have a great laugh at his
And I did enjoy the laugh.
However, you're a far better artist than I.

and for Gods sake smile dammit.
* finger point taken, darrell, and we don't mind
readers giving the site a little lip. -Editor
Just a note
to say that I loved the pic you did of Art
Reviewer: Cynthia H.
* thanks, made (or maidened) my day. -Editor
Clever insights into humanity's insanities. This book is
laugh out loud funny, but it also makes you think. Recommended!
Reviewer: Bob, Solvang, CA
Last Word was really entertaining. I must have looked pretty strange, just
sitting there staring into this book with a huge smile on my face the whole time.
Okay, now where's my sequel?
Reviewer: Hugh Morose, Irvine, CA
* staring into the book is fine, but you'll find it even funnier if
you turn the page occasionally. -Editor
Funny, Funny, Funny,
Uncontrollable chuckles, chortles and spontaneous guffaws await the fortunate reader of
this book. Mr. Sheppard has a keen sense for the paradoxes, ironies and
contradictions of life as we know it. Do not operate heavy machinery while reading this
book, tears of laughter will impair your vision.
Reviewer: A reader from Colbert, WA United States
My vote is in,
I voted for this one because it had a nice beat, it was easy to dance to and my cousin is
in the band.... but really this book is a hoot!
Reviewer: A reader from United States
* clearly an inbred relation of the author's. -Editor
