Real-life twits, nitwits, and misfits (TNMs) tend to annoy, antagonize, and alienate anyone with whom they associate. They can't help it. But the fictional oddball personalities featured in Twits, Nitwits, and Misfits - the book - could never inflict real-life trauma on anyone. So they're safe, and often even amusing, for the book's readers to hang out with page to page. TNM's behavioral patterns and habits often overlap and interlace. Even the author can't always distinguish twits from nitwits and misfits. That's because twits often behave like nitwits. Then, with minimal practice and some coaxing, they morph easily into lifelong societal misfits. The few average Joes depicted in this book are, of course, readily recognizable as welcome company. As an aside, the person who composed this book's foreword appears to be working at cross-purposes with the book's author. Although usually (ostensibly) written to tout a book's own merits, this foreword tends instead to tout and extensively catalogue it's own writer's talent, experience, and accomplishments. But, whatever the purpose, readers may believe this foreword could have been written by one of the fictional twits, nitwits, or misfits (or perhaps even one of the average Joes on a bad day) who populate the book itself. This book's 82 vignettes introduce a minihorde of dysfunctional or malfunctioning males and females. Desperation, turmoil, strife, conflict, despair, and instability - but thankfully, not yet pestilence - burden or perhaps even seem to overwhelm or traumatize their lives. Included among the book's dozens of fictional, difficult-to-cope-with characters are: Two sets of cross-dressing spouses... A 350-lb giant with chronic fatigue syndrome... Harry the Heister, who doubles as a panhandling pickpocket and a pickpocketing panhandler... Eddie Rostovitch and his very serious foot fetish... A horny goat-weed addict... The woman who wants to stuff her dead husband...
