So, basically, this is an ad for a book with the word "fuck" in the title, we got a picture of the cover, one four line quote, and a review.. a bit thin....

Why do people work so hard to fill the world with bad?

Thin maybe, but I laughed out loud when I saw it.

Bad? It's fabulous. Read down to the review that includes a sample of the book's text. It seems like it will be a terrific parody of the go-to-sleep-book genre:

The cats nestle close to their kittens now.
The lambs have laid down with the sheep.
You're cozy and warm in your bed, my dear
Please go the fuck to sleep.

My sister-in-law is expecting her second child in July. My niece is two and a half.

I'm getting ready to send both kids (the one that's present, and the one that's pending) a small token, and I am so going to get this as a treat for the parents.

How'd you happen across it, yiftach?

What a cynical thing. But that must mean there's a market to exploit!


The cow's in the manger
daddy's yelling at mommy
you goddamn did trick me
into having that baby

I never wanted a kid
you told me your tubes were tied
now we're ruined financially
because you lied.

This is going in the gift basket I have prepared for my batshitcrazy suburban super-catholic birther sister and her troglodyte husband when they finally (terrifyingly) announce that they're spawning. Along with "Why Mommy is a Democrat," "The Gashlycrumb Tinies" and "Illustrated Stories from the Bible."

I laughed a lot at this. And then I cried.

I laughed for a sec. My kids are total insomniacs.

But this seems like a really long way to go for a one-note joke.

It make the rounds last week. It's hilarious. I had to click through and double check urls just to make sure it was real. So so funny.

What the author doesn't get is that it doesn't work. Believe me when I tell you I told my kids to go to fucking sleep already and they just cried even more. Calling them little shitheads didn't help either.

Melatonin, that's the answer.

It's not out yet, and I doubt I would ever order it, but I can already say THIS IS THE BEST BOOK EVER WRITTEN EVER.

It was featured on The Good Men Project this morning.
