Welcome to Nasal Falls, home of Kowalski Cheese!

In the titular novella wrapping up this collection of comical short stories, readers join the tiny hamlet of Nasal Falls, Wisconsin, in their steadfast effort to become a bona fide Village. City leaders have discovered that one critical element is missing--an official Village Idiot. Every village must have an idiot, you know. But where can you find a genuine idiot and how much will it cost?

"Good idiots dont come cheap," says Treasurer and Councilman, Rip Skinflint. An exhaustive search reveals a wealth of incompetence for hire but, in the end, its narrowed down to two of North Americas dimmest bulbs who compete as finalists.

For the hamlet residents/aspiring villagers, the path to their goal leads through a wildly unpredictable obstacle course populated by a crew of zany, irrepressible characters. Its a hilarious journey, devoid of common sense, with a destination where every day is April Fools.

From the funhouse thats laughingly called Russell Gayers brain come another 13 wonderful ventures into wackiness. Pack up your troubles and set them out the back door--theres no room for them in this nutty world. From the warped mind that brought you The Perils of Heavy Thinking come more lighthearted snorts and giggles.

This one will bring sidesplitting laughter into your life. You can thank us later, after you catch your breath.
