Are you sick of writing research papers that put you and your audience asleep?   Do you groan at the thought of a research trip to the library?  Has your internet search engine blown a gasket?  Do you wish there were a cool way to write research papers that both informed and entertained the reader like your favorite non-fiction books do? Are you lonely? Do you need a laugh?  Do you want to learn how to make even your teacher laugh?

You're in luck, help has arrived.

51 Wacky We-search Reports will teach you how to hunt for the best facts and turn them into cartoons, parody performances, jokes, wacky poetry and much, much more.  And a We-search report is one that you do with friends so you won’t ever feel alone again. Promise.

Here are just a few of the silly reports you will learn how to write.

  • World’s Thinnest books (A Guide to Vegetarian Living by T. Rex)
  • Wacky Trading Cards ( I’ll trade you a Julius Caesar for an amoeba)
  • Crazy Quotes (“One small step for man, oops, I think I just got a wedgie.”
  • New Dollar Bills (got any I Have a Dream dollars?)
  • Tacky Tabloids (Mama Wolves Barf for Babies))
  • The After-Life Institute (take an 8 week mini-course with Alexander the Great)
  • The Wacky Board Game (care to play Gandhi-land anyone.)
  • Wacky Tests (Is Your Uncle an Inca? Take this simple test)
  • The Recipe Poem (Suffragette Soufflé anyone?)
