Format: Paperback
I picked this book up thinking "Oh, puppy!" Then I read the title. After 3 pages I was laughing so hard I was trying not to snort. Then my husband joined me and similarly lost it. I snorted about half way through the book, causing most of the store to look at me. When asked by said husband how much the book was I replied, "It doesn't matter, whatever it is is worth it." I plan on sending out all these wonderful little post cards, and then buying another book to keep around forever. If you have issues with confrontation, or just really dislike the people you know, this books for you.

Seriously, this is a perfect gift for friends. I am buying them for all my friends for the holidays. It's also a perfect book to have on the coffee table. Nothing's better for awkward silences then to have a book that has little puppies with a quote "it's not me, it's you." While I might never send these to anyone (and I hope I never have syphillis) it's a fantastic idea and a perfect gift for those who know how to laugh.

Format: Paperback
The idea for this book is simple but hillarious. The book contains 20 or 30 "postcards" (which you can leave in the book or tear out and send to people) with very cute pictures of baby animals and a "bad news" caption at the bottom, such as the example given on the front of the book. The combination of pictures of kittens and bunnys with things like "The Donor Backed Out", "Your Babies Ugly" and "It's Malignant" really are a hillarious contrast.

Great to look through when you need a laugh.

5 of 7 people found the following review helpful By John M. Ford on February 14, 2009
Format: Paperback
This is a book of 40 postcards, each with a cute picture of one or more animals and an edgy "bad news" message. They are hit-you-in-the-gut funny. My top five favorites are:

- Your baby's ugly
- You're my least favorite child
- You're the father
- You're not the father
- Your band sucks

I'm gonna get some mileage out of this one. After everyone in the family laughs their way through it, I'll take it into the office and pass it around in one of those "check your name off" folders we use to get birthday cards signed. Then I'll mail a few postcards.

I'll suggest a quick look through the book if you buy it in a store. The postcards are kind of easy to tear out.

This book of postcards has the cutest pictures and when combined with the different bad news like "you're bad in bed," it is so funny. Great gift idea.

These were very well made. Wish that the title page were actually a card you could SEND, though. It was not. Very funny, nonetheless.

By Collie Mom VINE VOICE on November 10, 2014
Format: Paperback
Imagine to my complete and utter horror, I have been breaking bad news the wrong way for 46 years. Some issues/situations:

1. It all started when I slammed that rat Stacy Coleman's fingers in a bathroom stall in in Girl Scout's because she was cheating at musical chairs. If only I had the temerity to send a cutie postcard outlying my anger to Stacy, I might never had been kicked out and blacklisted.

2. Telling my cousin Vivian that I had to testify against her in the federal mail fraud trial would have been a snap.

3. Informing my former boss that he sucked (and I might have mentioned something his small male part and lack of testicles) might have been a tad too harsh.

4. Atlanta PD might have gone easy on me if I had not been a snot during a routine safety check by implying a tryst with a lady of the evening would improve Officer Potter's demeanor.

Wow---now I know. I'll be getting these as soon as I pay back some bail money.
