The Encyclopedia of Bad Taste



The Encyclopedia of Bad Taste  by Jane and Michael Stern
1990
Weight: 2.7 lbs
Method of Disposal: Donating to AKF



A hand-me-down from my stepmom and of intrigue to various visitors to my house, The Encyclopedia of Bad Taste has been fun to have around, but is clearly not necessary anymore.  It pokes fun at some pretty embarrassing moments in American pop culture: enormous breasts, Chihuahuas, dinosaur parks, fish sticks, fuzzy dice, taxidermy, wax museums, and spam.  Some things surely did not belong on the list, like roller derby and troll dolls.  Right?!  I hope someone else, preferably someone who witnessed the 80’s, finds this being sold for next to nothing and gets some enjoyment out of it.
