Description
From a re-imagining of the Schroedinger's Cat conundrum to a skit entitled "I Love Loosely," in which Lucy and Ricky Ricardo play the parts of Hillary and President Clinton, this collection by comic genius Steve Martin--some pieces of which have appeared in The New Yorker--is both hilariously funny and intelligent in its skewering of the topic at hand.
