There is a body of opinion that Microwave Cooking For One is the saddest book in the world. Up until today, I would have agreed, until I saw this little gem in a local charity shop:

I make no apology to colonial readers who have no idea of the life (and death) of Rod Hull, needless to say there are probably people out there who still think that the bird did it, and this book is all the evidence they need.

Poor, dead Rod Hull. Poor, lonely Emu.

I'm from the Colonies, and I do remember Rod Hull and Emu. Sad to read about his death, but I watched Rod and Emu on the Hudson Brothers Comedy Hour. Sometimes, their skits were the best parts of the show.
