About the Book
Take a common aggravation. Your cat misbehaves. Or you suffer indignities while driving. Or at the supermarket. Or at the doctor’s office.

You grumble a bit, but then have an idea: “Holophrasis!” That means using one word to capture the situation! Hmmm. Let’s deploy or invent an amusing word, and have some fun with misery!

That’s just what El McMeen does in this rib-tickling book.
You’ll be LOL and nodding in agreement as you enjoy it!

Examples:

You are at the grocery store, and another customer is doing dumb things and clogging the aisle.
You have encountered “Dopeandhoggin!”

When your cat refuses to use the scratching pole, she is practicing “Polavoid!”

When the tailgater passes you at warp speed, you are experiencing the feeling of “Mayacopseeya.”

The book also deals with euphemisms – taking difficult subjects and making them sound nice and pleasant. El shares his two favorites in the book, one having to do with airplanes landing and one having to do with drugs (legal ones).

There are plenty of others that will have you chuckling, and making up your own holophrases!
