    Don Voorhees is the author of The Essential Book of Useless Information and Disgusting Things: A Miscellany. A native of Morris County, New Jersey, he now lives in Pennsylvania.
    It doesn't get any more useless than this!

    The most inconsequential entry yet in the #1 New York Times bestselling series proves that information is overrated.

    Your life won't be improved by knowing that...

    ? Frank Sinatra's mother was a convicted felon.
    ? Bugs Bunny was born in Brooklyn.
    ? The average American home contains $90 in loose change.
    ? It is illegal to use the American flag in advertising.

    And there's no good reason to also discover...

    ? Which game show host previously worked as a garbageman.
    ? Which day of week is the most popular to rob a bank.
    ? Which millionaire loaned his kidnapped grandson ransom money at 4 percent interest.
    ? Which country once had a dog for a king.
