Life on easy street isn't all it's cracked up to be, according to this self-absorbed and fictitious collection of bizarre quips. Shallow superstar whimpering is captured in clever one-liners that take a tongue-in-cheek look at the problems that accompany fame and fortune, such as: it takes the Pizza Hut delivery guy thirty minutes just to get from the front gate of your property to your front door; your seat on the New York Stock Exchange doesn't vibrate; and when the Houston Astros play the Baltimore Orioles, you're not sure which team to root for because you own them both. The silly passages poke fun at the absurdity of modern society's complaints while reminding people how good they have it.
