MAKE LOVE NOT WARTS, & FOUR SCORE AND SEVEN BEERS AGO...BY BRIAN T SHIRLEY


BLURB from Goodreads
If you are a human, then you've had someone give you advice. Whether it's your parents,grandparents, or some guy digging in a dumpster they often use some sort of saying or "words of wisdom". This book takes many of those little gems and turns them on their head. It also has many original sayings that sound like something that you may or should have heard. They'll tell you that "once you've fallen off that horse, it's time to get back on". Why?! That's how people get hurt. I say it's time to ride a bike! This isn't the kind of thing you can read once and then put down forever. More than likely you'll pass this on to you children or grandchildren in some sort of ceremony. Unless you take it with you.
This truly has some "gems" in it. Some of them make you smile others make you laugh out loud! 
This book is an ideal stocking filler for Christmas to.
Below are a few of the funny quotes/sayings/gems!


"Talking louder isn't talking smarter"
"There's a lot to be said about keeping your mouth shut"
"It's not what you've got, it's what they think you've got"
"Fool's fall in love in a hurry, it's the divorce that takes so damn long"
"Love is like a rock, it hurts when you hit someone with it"


Available from Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk £6.17 in paperback £7.26 on Kindle


Brian T Shirley has also done another book of this type/genre

FOUR SCORE 
AND 
SEVEN BEERS AGO....



Again this book is a collection of "little gems" and sayings of older times too.
This book is also funny and the type of book you can dip in and out of as you wish. Some really witty sayings I could imagine putting in greetings cards to family and friends alike!
I have selected a few to share with you below.
"It's important to stay healthier than your bank account"
"I Twittered my Facebook, because I lost Myspace"
"When you see someone get hurt, don't ask them questions immediately, give them a chance to adjust to their pain."
"Who wants to sleep like a baby, they don't stay down long and they always wake up crying"


Available from Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk £7.86 in paperback £7.05 on kindle


Both books ideal Christmas, Birthday, or amusing little gifts to give those you love!
