A self-selected collection of classic satire from the renowned humorist Will Rogers. The Illiterate Digest, although poking clean fun at politicians and absurdity from a century ago, may at first listen appear to be satire written about last weeks news.
"Outdated by 50 years"
Humorist Will Rogers, known as The Cowboy Philosopher, serves up political satire 1900s style in his notes on the Paris Peace Conference and the formation of the League of Nations following World War I. Rogers-isms is as pointed and dry as any contemporary political commentary. Referring to the Conference as "the Peace Feast" Rogers says "…I don't want to see the world grow up in ignorance on this historical subject."
