Hot, Humorous and Odd? 

Would you like to be called hot, humorous and odd? Hot and humorous, maybe, but odd? 

Being called hot, humorous and odd is a great thing when Barnes & Noble is doing the name calling.  

The national bookseller has committed to placing Buy Ketchup in May and Fly at Noon on its "Hot, Humorous and Odd" tables for the first six weeks that the book is on sale. This is great placement for the book, especially considering Barnes & Noble made the decision before seeing any of the book's reviews, which are expected out in the days and weeks after the publication date, Oct. 6.
