Mit »Bullshit« legte der amerikanische Philosoph Harry G. Frankfurt den Klassiker der »Empört Euch!«-Bücher vor. Im Sturmlauf eroberte er die Herzen aller, die vom Nonsense-Gerede in U-Bahn und Büro und auf allen Kanälen schon lange genug hatten. Binnen Wochen verkaufte sich sein zorniges Manifest in den Vereinigten Staaten eine halbe Million Mal, ein globaler Feldzug gegen »Bullshitting« war die Folge. Doch Bullshit siegte. Bis heute haben wir dümmliche »Bild«-Kolumnen und hohles Gequassel in den Talkshows und am Handy. Ohnmächtig müssten wir all das über uns ergehen lassen, hätten wir nicht Frankfurts elegant-präzise Abrechnung mit derlei Phänomenen zur Hand, Urschrift aller Wut-Bücher und unverzichtbares Grundlagenwerk der angewandten Dummheitsforschung. Bullshit? Lesen!

Gar betrüblich ergeht es den Baudelaires ... Die Baudelaire-Geschwister ergeht ein schreckliches Schicksal: Nach dem Tod ihrer Eltern werden die Kinder in das düstere Haus von Graf Olaf gesteckt. Angeblich handelt es sich um einen entfernten Verwandten, der sich jedoch bald als gemeines Scheusal entpuppt. Er verfolgt den miesen Plan, das Vermögen der Kinder an sich zu reißen. Hinterhältig versucht er Violet dazu zu zwingen, ihn zu heiraten. Nur mit Hilfe von Klaus’ Belesenheit, Violets erfinderischem Genie und Sunnys Gabe, die Schurken im richtigen Moment zu beißen, gelingt es ihnen in letzter Sekunde, Graf Olafs Plan zu vereiteln. Aber der Bösewicht entkommt. Mr Poe, der Testamentsvollstrecker der Baudelaires, fährt die Kinder zu Onkel Monty. Bei dem berühmten Schlangenforscher fühlen sich die drei Waisenkinder wie im Paradies – doch nur für kurze Zeit. Denn der nette Onkel stirbt an Schlangengift, und Graf Olaf, diesmal in einer raffinierten Verkleidung, von der sich nur die Baudelaire-Kinder nicht täuschen lassen, versucht, die Kinder zu entführen ... Dieser Doppelband enthält 1) Der schreckliche Anfang 2) Das Haus der Schlangen
