How Does Aspirin Find a Headache?
This book is particularly rich with wacky Imponderables (how do people come up with gems like: Are lions really afraid of kitchen chairs? Or will Super Glue stick to Teflon?).
But my fondest recollection about Aspirin was this was the book where I finally got McDonald's to talk to me on the record about some Golden Arches Imponderables, after years of their stonewalling.
Finally, I could answer questions such as: When the sign says "over 95 billion served," they are referring to 95 billion WHAT? Why are McDonald's straws so wide in circumference? And why are the burgers upside-down when you unfold the wrapper of a McDonald's hamburger?
