Unfortunately, since the book has already gone to press, Corsi had to resort to stickers to accomplish this before its May 17 publication.
By exing out the ‘W’ of Where’s, and placing a red exclamation point sticker over the question mark in the title, he kept pace with current events by changing the book’s title to the more triumphant “Here’s the Birth Certificate!” The word ‘not’ in the subtitle has been covered with a smiley face sticker, reversing its meaning, and conveying the joy millions are feeling now that the birth question is a non-issue.
The best news for readers is the book’s new low price, $2.59, which is 90% below retail. This, too, required a sticker.
The final addition to his hardcover edition will be a copy of the birth certificate folded and inserted inside the back cover, for the benefit of people without access to the Internet or television.
By taking these measures, the economically savvy Corsi demonstrated that he knows how to avoid having a book remaindered even before it hits bookshelves: Market it as satire.
Corsi continued to observe his “quiet period” at home today by frantically placing stickers on book jackets, and making public statements at World Net Daily and on his Facebook page.
