About this Book:
Our best-selling book of all-time, A Moose and a Lobster Walk into a Bar is beloved for its timeless Downeast humor. The family-friendly traditional stories by John McDonald, a columnist, radio personality, and professional storyteller, strike a chord with readers looking for a good laugh. The book mixes classic Maine storytelling, stretched truths, and wry observations made by McDonald during his travels through the Pine Tree State. McDonald discusses the economic power of Maine’s yard sale industry, bemoans Massachusetts, which allowed Maine to become a state in 1820, for buying Maine back one house at a time, and relates how the infamous black fly was just an attempt at controlling tourists gone haywire. You will also meet Maine characters like Uncle Abner, Merrill Minzey, and Hollis Eaton, and find yourself pondering where the truth ends and the story begins.
