A great book to reference for political parody. Divided into chapters on Bliss, Betrayal, Despair, Marriage and Class Struggles (the boy or girl from the wrong side of the tracks). Includes classics - teardrops while sniffling into a lace-edged hankie, I was Engaged to a Puppet, and several quizzes and advice columns on how to increase your Dateability.
