Chuy Bravo, sidekick on the TV show Chelsea Lately, shares his raunchy take on life, food, fashion, and entertainment in Little Nuggets of Wisdom: Big Advice from the Small Star of Chelsea Lately. He calls it his 'unique crotch-high perspective on life', which gives you a sense of what the jokes focus on. It begins with a funny Short Bio.

Though I haven't seen the show, I enjoy quotations, so jumped right in. In Fashion Nuggets, Bravo advises 'A pair of brown loafers is a must in a man's closet. To be clear, I'm talking about shoes and not two lazy Mexicans.' Love Nuggets include: 'Take karate lessons. Nothing is sexier than a bare foot cracking a piece of solid pine in two.' In Family Nuggets we have, 'If one of your family members needs a kidney, don't fork over the valuable organ for free just because you're related to the poor bastard.' And here's a good one in Movie Nuggets: 'Never sit in the front row of a theater unless you have a bloody nose and you're trying to stop the bleeding.'

You have to like this style of humor (which I really don't) but if the relatively mild examples above tickle your own funny bone, then you should get hold of a copy of Little Nuggets of Wisdom, whose contents make funny bathroom reading.
