A Moose and a Lobster Walk Into a Bar (15th Anniversary Edition)

A Moose and a Lobster Walk into a Bar is beloved for its timeless Downeast humor. The family-friendly stories by John McDonald, an author, 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 that Massachusetts (which allowed Maine to become a state in 1820) is buying the state back one house at a time, and relates how the black fly was just an attempt at controlling tourists now gone haywire. You also meet Maine characters like Uncle Abner, Merrill Minzey, and Hollis Eaton, and find yourself pondering where the truth ends and the story begins.
