How to get over it. . . .


I recently bumped up again against a Fob Bible review by Dallas Robbins that includes this paragraph:
“How to Get Over It, a public service message” is a running series throughout the book in which familiar tales are recounted with deadpan delivery. One is “The Joseph Method,” which begins, “Joseph, who later would use the stage name ‘Joseph of Egypt’ (and, much, much later, ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat’), was sold into slavery by his brothers—to a bunch of hairy Ishmaelites no less” (65). It reminds one more of the “Shouts and Murmurs” section of the New Yorker, than of any sort of biblical fiction one might find at Deseret Book.
In case you don't know, these public-service messages' original provenance was Byuck.

Which you can buy.

And probably should.
