Side splittingly, drink spittingly, pants peeingly funny.
Available in 2017, this once in a lifetime trip through the U.K. in which our author is unable to remain awake, caned by the elderly, and asphyxiated by the noxious fumes of the eponymous breakfast. A book that is essentially the Odyssey—with more farting.
Mind blowingly, ass kickingly, inspirationally amusing.
Only available by request. What started as a personal writing tool for the author has turned into an underground success story, helping new and established writers ramp up their productivity, stay focused, and build a library of finished work. If you're serious about becoming a professional writer, this guide book will be your new favorite tool.
Award winningly, pants poopingly, nose pickingly hilarious.
Edgy, rude, self-deprecating and—most importantly—hilarious, this collection of blog posts and columns from award-winning humorist Christopher “Bull” Garlington serves as uproarious evidence that fatherhood is hard, often messy, and always life-altering work. Where other parenting memoirs focus only on the diaper years,ﾠDeath by Childrenﾠproves that a father’s job only gets more complicated as children move into adolescence and prepare to leave the nest. Parents—and dads in particular—will have no trouble recognizing their own daily struggles in the humorous and engaging anecdotes gathered in this book, including favorites "Happy Pulaski Day!" "Poison Control Poster Child Training," and "Raised by Google." (Sadly, out of print but still available from the author!)
