Cold Fusion, by Dr. Haggis-on-Whey

Are you interested in cold fusion?  Would you like to everything there is to know about cold fusion?  In that case, you'll want to look somewhere else besides Dr. Doris Haggis-on-Whey's Cold Fusion, volume 4 in Dr. and Mrs. Doris Haggis-on-Whey's World of Unbelievable Brilliance.  But if you couldn't care less about cold fusion, don't know what it is, or just want a few laughs, Cold Fusion is the book for you.

Enlightened readers who are familiar with Dr. Haggis-on-Whey's work will enjoy the nonsensical, random, and beautifully illustrated content.  She reveals the fates of "people who scoffed at cold fusion."  She warns of the "possible side effects of room-temperature nuclear reactions," including frogmen and Kevin Spacey movies set in Nova Scotia.  And, of course, "why birds are bad at building superconductors" and how noble gases became noble.

Cold Fusion contains plenty of laugh-out-loud moments.  But the ratio of laugh-out-loud moments per page seemed noticeably lower than previous H-O-W books.  You'll have to take my word for it.  By the way, some of the funniest parts are the captions and footnotes.  Don't skip the small print.
