A Play on Words
The First 100
by Dr. John F. Does

A Play on Words is a lively, knee-slapping romp through the inherent vagaries of the English language. Readers can let the book drop open at any page and find an invitation to appreciate the absurdities with which real life is packed and to enjoy a giggle from John Does’ clever take on them. Dr. John F. Does is also the author of a series of conversation-starter books for children on a range of sensitive social topics. The Weather’s Shitty, Kitty is an adorable exploration of words. Words are not good or bad. They are just words. But how we use our words can make people feel uncomfortable. Uncle Funky’s a Drunk, Skunk is a warm and loving way to help young children understand the issue of problem drinking by adults. Those Hens are Cliquey, Chickie is a fun, action-packed look at youth cliques and bullying. That Salmon’s not so Dumb, Chum warmly explores dyslexia from the perspectives of children, parents and teachers.

Wacky, language-twisting commentary on his observations flips into John’s brain at random. He started to make use of this clutter in 2015 by writing down his favourites, which were eagerly embraced by several local magazines. John, who has an MBA from the Odette School of Business at the University of Windsor and a PhD from the University of the West of England, incorporates his unique sense of humour into keynote speaking engagements on the topic of his doctoral thesis: “Exploring the Salesmanship/Entrepreneurship Dynamic.” John is an avid reader and a devotedly frustrated golfer. He lives on a few country acres near Plattsville, Ontario, with his wife, Annette, and daughters, Samantha and Olivia.
