George Fripley is a satirist and poet. He has worked in government, the mining industry, universities, and has also travelled extensivly. He is completely unqualified to comment on anything and should be ignored, except by those who don’t know any better! One of these days he will write a best-selling book, get his songs recorded, win the lottery, and may even be kidnapped by aliens. However, until that time he will continue to write about bullshit, bureaucracy, people who should have existed in history, and the meaning of life…as he sees it, in between penning a poem or two!
George has, so far, written 4 books – You Can’t Polish a Turd (the Civil Servant’s Manual), The Dregs of History, Silence… , and More Gravy Please! – all available through Amazon.
You Can’t Polish a Turd (the Civil Servant’s Manual) is a book that explains the mysteries of the Civil Service. It is vital reading for all potential and current civil servants. It is also vital for those dealing with the government machine.
The Dregs of History blog about ordinary people. History remembers the famous, but what about the rest. There have been billions of people on the planet. There is a good chance that those that I write about may even have existed, and if they had, they would certainly have deserved their place floating face-down in the dregs of history.
Silence… is a collection of poems. Some serious, some not so serious. Over 20 of the poems included have been published previously in various journals and ezines in the USA, UK and Australia.
More Gravy Please! – This is the essential handbook for all aspiring and serving politicians. It will ensure that you have a smooth ride through your political career. After asking 6 basic questions to test your suitability for political life, it goes on to educate you about Mutually Assured Distraction, Viral Ignorance, Tule’s Law, the Thermodynamic Theory of Promotion, Manic Irrelevance Syndrome, and many, many more vital aspects of life in politics. As everybody knows, no politician has ever made a mistake – and this book shows how you too can reach such levels of perfection.
George’s novel The Dunnyfunter is currently nearing completion and he is investigating publishing options for this book.
