Dana Pearson’s humor column, No, But Seriously, won top awards from the New England Press Association and Maine Press Association during its 14-year run in the York County Coast Star. More than 100 of those columns have been rounded up in “No, But Seriously: 1994-2007,” now available as a 320- page paperback from Amazon (www.amazon.com/author/danapearson). Pearson tackled all the hot-button issues of the day and this collection contains all the hits, including: the joy of pig races; pondering an oyster shell Jesus; preparing for a Druish wedding; the intrinsic comedy of spent nuclear fuel rods; the intrinsic danger of flying screaming monkeys; fish sticks and their political fall-out; riding behind a gassy mule through Bryce Canyon; and the wisdom of bringing blueberry Pop-Tarts on a camping trip into bear country. 5p1.jpg
