Who Elected This Guy President?
In case you hadnt already noticed, Dave Barry isnt just a Pulitzer Prize-winning humor columnist. Hes also a shameless self-promoter and gratuitous merchandiser whose online store is packed with all kinds of useless, overpriced crap, including Dave Barry for President T-shirts, hoodies, baby bibs, trucker hats, tote bags, teddy bears, dog clothes, beer steins, and thongs. The worst part: His goofy moppet face is plastered all over the stuff.
And now, Barry is dropping another merch bomb. This Saturday at 3 p.m., Miamis favorite unfunny funnyman will stop by Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden for the purposes of peddling his umpteenth book of babble, Ill Mature When Im Dead: Dave Barrys Amazing Tales of Adulthood. For subnormal losers, an afternoon with Barry and a copy of his newest essay collection costs $40. The elite (AKA Fairchild members), however, pay only $35.
Sat., May 8, 3 p.m., 2010
