You'll Laugh, You'll Cry, You'll Throw Up in Your Mouth a Little...
on November 19, 2013
Join Professor Badbones and his sidekick/nemesis, Stiffany, as they spin some weird ungodly tales of friendly neighborhood banks, large-breasted ninjas, hopeless haberdashers and sex fantasies at work.
Prepare to enter a strange Mixtopia - "A mix between a utopia and a dystopia where some things are unbelievably better while simultaneously other things are hellishly worse, e.g. “The warm slappable realness of this sexbot’s thighs almost distracts me from the painful sickness I have from this radioactive corn."
Yeah. It's like that.
Though these stories plop down comfortably into the bizarro/absurdist category - whacked out, disgusting and of course, funny as hell, two of them managed to break my rock-hard heart. In one, an extremely old fart is urged to give up life as he knows it and have his brain placed in permanent virtual reality. Then we have Sneezy, an unfairly underrated dwarf, confessing to a mad love/lust for Snow White. After she is placed in a glass casket suffering from a witch-induced coma, he tries desperately to rouse her before that pesky prince shows up. I was practically in tears as he kissed her again and again to no avail. Sob!
In the not heart breaking but thoroughly entertaining category, we have a man who can't get laid...even though he's the last man on earth. Then there's the guy who finds that being marooned on an island with 37 cheerleaders - "Their clothes are ripped in sort of a sexy post-apocalyptic way." - is not all it's cracked up to be. And let's not forget what happened to the poor gentleman who didn't follow directions and drank the WHOLE BOTTLE of love potion, not the recommended amount of one capful.
These twisted tales are not for everyone. The author is fairly obsessed with bodily functions. Almost no one is presented with flowers and chocolates. Gross stuff happens.
But if you're looking for cheap thrills and have always wondered what would happen if you didn't have to poop anymore, baby, this is the book for you!
