Uganda Be Kidding me by Chelsea Handler

Uganda Be Kidding Me

Overview from Barnes and Noble:

Wherever Chelsea Handler travels, one thing is certain: she always ends up in the land of the ridiculous. Now, in this uproarious collection, she sneaks her sharp wit through airport security and delivers her most absurd and hilarious stories ever.

On safari in Africa, it's anyone's guess as to what's more dangerous: the wildlife or Chelsea. But whether she's fumbling the seduction of a guide by not knowing where tigers live (Asia, duh) or wearing a bathrobe into the bush because her clothes stopped fitting seven margaritas ago, she's always game for the next misadventure.
The situation gets down and dirty as she defiles a kayak in the Bahamas, and outright sweaty as she escapes from a German hospital on crutches. When things get truly scary, like finding herself stuck next to a passenger with bad breath , she knows she can rely on her family to make matters even worse. Thank goodness she has the devoted Chunk by her side-except for the time she loses him in Telluride.

Complete with answers to the most frequently asked traveler's questions, hot travel trips, and travel etiquette, none of which should be believed, UGANDA BE KIDDING ME has Chelsea taking on the world, one laugh-out-loud incident at a time.

My thoughts:
A number of these stories had me laughing aloud while reading.  I much preferred the parts while she was in Africa on safari with five friends.  Each of those sections went by day and detailed where she was and which one of the adventures she was currently on.  I would hate to be the location that she gave such bad reviews for, but perhaps she used a fake name for it, although at the same time if the experience really was that bad then maybe letting people know isn't such a bad idea.

I have enjoyed Handler's other books.  I didn't know she had a new one out until I saw it at the library.  They move fast and seem so unbelievable.  Wouldn't it be great to be able to embellish your own life and make it funnier.  Cleaning up a public restroom stall at an airport from the user before her so no one would talk about her having made the terrible mess or finding a home for a mountain dog that was intent on destroying her house, Handler does it all with a drink in her hand.
