David Rees draws clip art comics for Rolling Stones magazine, plays in a band, and works temp jobs where he finds his inspiration for his comics. MNFTIU is based on the clip arts he collected while working at a university community health department. This is where he found Karate Snoopy, Circulatory Man, and the ambulance drivers. The fixation with fighting and technique which is mentioned over and over again is from Rees' fascination with rap music. His characters are like rappers when they freestyle (rap). Rappers battle each other with the skillfulness of their words. The one with the best "fighting technique" emerges victorious.
This is a fun book to read if you do so with an open mind. If you're expecting to read it like Calvin & Hobbes or The Peanuts then you'll be disappointed. If you like South Park or even The Simpsons, there's a good chance MNFTIU will appeal to you. You can find samples of Rees' MNFTIU at [...] He also has other works such as "Get Your War On" which can be viewed at [...] All the royalties from this book are donated to the Adopt a Landmine charity dedicated to landmine clearance in Afghanistan. So even if you don't like his comics, you have to appreciate his contributions.

This book is hysterical. However, it is only fair for me to point out that almost every other person I have shown it to does NOT agree with me. It truly is a book for the strange and unusual. And for the people who want to laugh out loud.
Pick this one up...well worth it.
The humor is definatly insane and off the wall. The fact that he reuses images for completly different scenes, or vise versa reuses dialog with completey different images is just great stuff. You can always check out a handfull of the strips at [...] to see if your humor matches the books. It did for me.

Let's get this out of the way, the entire book is clip art humor (often the same clip art, over and over), with wacky captions and word balloons. Not everyone will enjoy this. Read morePublished on April 3, 2013 by Badman

David Rees was bored at work. So bored that he occupied his time creating comics from out of PowerPoint using the cheesy clipart graphics. Read morePublished on October 17, 2003
How in the world did David Rees' Kung Fu get this good? I've read this 16 times and laugh harder with each read. Clip-art has never been this inspired or this a**-kicking.Published on October 16, 2003 by blah
David Rees is a really talented and funny person from what I've come to understand, so it confuses me that he'd waste his time rehashing a book he self-published years ago. Read morePublished on October 16, 2003
