On Sale Now! Her Story is a vivid documentation of the breadth and diversity of American women's achievements throughout U.S. history. This one-of-a-kind illustrated timeline highlights the awesome, varied, and often unrecognized contributions of American women since the 1500s. There have been women trailblazers throughout American history; women have had a profound impact on the intellectual, social, and political development of our society. But many of their contributions have gone unnoticed. Most people have heard of Susan B. Anthony, Harriet Tubman, Margaret Sanger, and Eleanor Roosevelt. But did you know that a woman microbiologist discovered the bacterium responsible for undulant fever, which then led to the pasteurization of all milk? Or that a woman patented the paper-bag folding machine to make square-bottom bags (the grocery bag)? Or that a female mathematician's work laid the foundation for abstract algebra? The women featured in Her Story range from writers, artists, actors, and athletes to doctors, scientists, social and political activists, educators, and inventors, and include women of all backgrounds and philosophies. The authors of Her Story, Charlotte S. Waisman and Jill S. Tietjen, with a foreword by Madeleine Albright, have compiled an extraordinary collection of women and events that provides a unique view of history. Part of Her Story's distinctiveness is the inclusion of hundreds of lesser-known women from all walks of life who have broken barriers and created paths of noteworthy and inspiring achievement.

Read the lyrics below if the sound is too shitty. This is me performing jokes at the Ft. Lauderdale Improv. Thanks, guys, thanks, guys. How are you ladies doing? I didn't say, "How are you guys doing," because I don't give a fuck about the guys. I saw this guy reading a book the other day at work, it was one of those For Dummies books, you seen these? The yellow For Dummies books? Why would you read that book, why would you walk around with a book that insults you? I'm a dummy, this book calls me an idiot, just to let you guys know. That's like a guy walking around with a book that says Dating for Assholes. And it's silly, too, because the book he was reading, uh, was called Reading Books for Dummies. It's like, how can you learn what your learning disability is? Why do they put ads on racecars? You know? Jiffy Lube, zyoom...! Wonderbread, zyoom...! Who's idea was that? Sorry, man. But who's idea was that? Let's put ads on a car going 200 MPH so everyone can see it. I think they should put ads on turtles. Broadcasting on turtle crossings nationwide. That reminds me of when I grew up in this neighborhood, the people who designed my neighborhood, I always thought that they were assholes cuz when they put the turtle crossing, they built it across a 6 lane highway. That's cruel, how are you gonna put a turtle crossing across a 6 lane highway? And they have a speed limit sign that just says "Fuck you!" Every time I drive over it my car goes, "Joot joot joot joot joot joot joot joot joot." It's the circle of life, it's the circle of life! Because the kitty cats come out and eat the carcasses. And I used to loved to go pet them because I'm really good at petting kitty cats. I just now exactly where to hit the spot, and at the same time while I'm petting them I go, "Yes, I love to pet the pussy, I love to pet the pussy." You think that's funny? It's funnier to me cuz at the same time, their face, they're looking at me, they go, "Rehrrrr! Rehrrrr!" They love that shit. Which reminds me: if someone tells you they're a pathological liar, do you believe them? Cuz to be completely honest with you guys, I'm a liar. Like, people always ask me, "Hey, Mike! How come you never answer the question you're being asked?" So I tell them: "Because it tastes great. Because it tastes great..." Well, you guys are cool, I'll be damned. No, really, I'll be damned. I sold my soul to the goddamn devil. And all I got was a shirt for it, she gave me a shirt. The shirt she gave me says: "I sold my soul to the devil and all I got was this lousy T-shirt." That's a terrible trade-off. That's right, she. In my joke Satan is a woman cuz I believe a woman has every right to be portrayed as the devil. For once. Thank you. Speaking of which... which... (sneeze) Speaking of witches, what's this replacing "history" with "herstory"? You know March is Women's Herstory Month? That's a bullshit word. Feminism is ruining the Ingles language. You never hear anyone say, "Try reading the wo-manual." Well, I guess unless you need to learn how to be a bitch. Am I right? (goes to hi-5 a cross-armed woman, who refuses) Looks like someone's been reading her wo-manual! She's got the 2009 edition. See, I'm—I'm not like other guys. Like, I'm not that into sports. I'm more into games like, like you know, sports, somebody wins, someone loses, it could go either way every time. I like games where everybody loses. Like voting for president! Or sex after 60. Or sex with 60 year olds, in my case. No! Uh... Am I right? (goes to get hi-5 again from same woman, who again refuses) I've been meaning to ask you, what is that? (points at random spot on the table; when they look, walks away) If you guys read the newspaper, you might be aware of this recent—I recently read this in the paper. This is for those of you who don't keep up to date with the latest news... as of yesterday. But did you know the Latinos are the #1 Hispanics in South America? Sorry, Spanish people, you were #2. And that's all you'll ever be... I was at Denny's the other day, you guys been to Denny's? The waitresses there freak me the fuck out. They look like they play in the WNBA, they're giants! I wonder where they make this—this, uh... Denny's waitress factory. What are they making these waitresses out of? They're 60 feet tall, they come up to your table: Bookh! Bookh! Bookh! "Can I get you guys anything else? OK." (suck air) Bookh! (suck air) Bookh! (suck air) Bookh! The other ones that don't sound like that sound like they've been smoking since they were 3. "You didn't want the blueberries?" No, there's blood and vomit in it, Paige. Before I let you guys go, I just wanna tell you this thought I had the other day. You know, the thing that I really wonder about a lot is, I wonder who the best rapist in the world is. I'm juhbuh juhbuh. Go to myspace****/jubuhjuhbuh. (goes off stage to make love to pretty ladies)

Read the lyrics below if the sound is too shitty. This is me performing jokes at the Ft. Lauderdale Improv. "(indecipherable, girly voice) You know, nowadays, everybody's calling themselves "Li'l Something". We've got Li'l Wayne, Li'l Scrappy, Li'l Kim... Li'l Flip, Li'l Jon... Li'l Romeo, Li'l Keke--it's getting ridiculous! It's gonna get the point to where we run out of names and some poor guy gets stuck with "Lit'l Dick"...singing about how hard he balls. I work in customer service and, uh, one time this blind guy called. I know he was blind cuz he wouldn't shut up about it, and he was such an asshole. So I decided to fuck with him, right? And so I started to say--and this is 100% true, I lie to you not--I started to say, "Sir, sir! Can't you see why that's your balance? I'm sure you can see! There's no reason why you couldn't see... why that's your balance..." I don't even know how he called me; I figure blind people must really love Bluetooth. Deaf people, though, the tragedy of their life is they could never enjoy bubble wrap. And I hate when people say, "The proof is in the pudding... Don't eat that pudding... It's evidence." I hate when people say that. What's this replacing history with herstory? Feminism is ruining the Ingles language, that's bullshit. Who says, "You need to read the womanual"? Well, I guess if you need to learn how to be a bitch. Am I right? (I try to high-five a woman o.s. but miss) Looks like somebody's been reading her womanual! And my high-five is off target... I wonder if they have guys guarding the plastic silverware company... with giant sporks. You know? Like, what are they gonna do though if I show up with a giant, baked potato, you know? "Wassup, motherfuckers?" "Halt!" "What? I got a giant baked potato. What are you gonna do, break your spork off on it? Your spear sporks?" "They're called spearks!" "Whatever! Take back your stupid 'box o' plastic nutcrackers'. Those shits suck." Hmm... I wonder who the best rapist in the world is. See, I wonder weird shit like that, yeah, thank you. I'm-I'm glad I'm not alone. I wonder if pillows could talk, what would they sound like, you know? Would they just sound like they're just whispering, you know? Cuz they're so soft, I can't imagine my pillow yelling at me, you know? "Quit cummin in my face!" I don't like to give my pillows liquor anymore cuz they end up going around starting pillow fights. I can't keep those bastards under control. I was at the ss-- I saw a sign at the stoplight the other day, it said "FOUND GOLDFISH"... and I thought, If you put acne crème on prison walls, could it prevent future breakouts? Do you guys like stereotypical impressions in stand up routines? Yeah? Alright! This is an impression of an impression doing me: "Hey, Mike, what's... what's it like to be you? What's-what's that all about?" Thank you. How can someone learn what their learning disability is? I was at work on break the other day, I saw these guys talking by the water cooler. These 3 guys talking about vozkovs and such. But this fourth guy comes up behind the tall guy who's talking to them and starts tapping him on the shoulder, "Hey, Brian. Hey, Brian. Hey, Brian. Hey, Brian. Hey, Brian. Hey, Brian." The tall completely ignored him: "...and I think the 3rd quarter is looking real strong." "Hey, Brian. Hey, Brian. Hey, Brian. Hey, Brian. Hey, Brian. Hey, Brian—" "Shut the fuck up!" said the tall guy. And he walked away, pissed. The fourth guy looked down at his feet as he dragged them and walked the other way. But there's 2 guys left, and the Guy #1 says, "Who was that guy talking to us?" The other guy thinks, he says, "I think his name was Marshall?" I'm Mike Tallon, you've been watching ABC News.
