Jay Leno's headlines by Jay Leno( Book )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Headlines : real but ridiculous samplings from America's newspapers( Book )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The reason these headlines appealed to me is because they were never intended to be funny in the first place. That they're checked and rechecked by a proofreader makes them funnier still. In this book we've deliberately avoided using headlines from tabloid or so-called "pulp" newspapers because the double entendres found in them are often intentional. It's when they're not but show up anyway in the local gazette, that you have to laugh. In the same way that a joke is funnier in church, a silly headline seems even sillier when it appears in a respected "organ of the people." I'd like to thank the viewers of The Tonight Show who contributed the headlines that appear here and have made it possible for me to donate all author proceeds to charity. - Introduction
Preston Tucker and his battle to build the car of tomorrow by Steve Lehto( )

5 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the wake of World War II, the U.S. automobile industry was fully unprepared to meet the growing demands of the public, for whom they had not made any cars for years. In stepped Preston Tucker, a salesman extraordinaire who announced the building of a revolutionary new car: the Tucker '48, the first car in almost a decade to be built fresh from the ground up. Tucker's car, which would include ingenious advances in design and engineering that other car companies could not match, captured the interest of the public, and automakers in Detroit took notice. Here, author Steve Lehto tackles Tucker's amazing story, relying on a huge trove of documents that has been used by no other writer to date. It is the first comprehensive, authoritative account of Tucker's magnificent car and his battles with the government.
