April Fool's day is fast approaching. If you're one of those who purchases gag gifts for April Fool's Day, might I suggest THE OFFICIAL BARF BOOK. Quite frankly, it was all I could do not to gag just going though it...and I WROTE IT!
Well, not exactly. THE OFFICIAL BARF BOOK is Craig Yoe's follow-up to his astonishingly successful OFFICIAL FART BOOK of a couple years back. This time, Craig recruited a bunch of folks to help put it together. I'm credited in a dozen chapters and contributed to a couple more. Also involved were my lovely wife Rene, longtime Net friend Lisa Mynx, former DC writer/editor Jack C. Harris, illustrators Vince Musacchia and Greg Oakes, fellow I.T.C.H. member David B. and a host of others.
Greg Oakes did the art for my biggest contribution, ROCK AND ROLL HEAVIN', an irreverent section on rock stars who...well...choked to death on vomit. See below for a sample.
From the publisher:
All in all, THE OFFICIAL BARF BOOK is a surprisingly educational book filled with historical tidbits and trivia, but also with enough gross limericks, cartoons and illustrations to turn even the strongest stomachs. I dare you to try reading it without at least coming close to adding your own chapter. "Urp!"
Did I mention it comes with free plastic throw-up attached to the cover? Talk about a major selling point! Oh and if you think THIS one was bad, wait until you see what next year's follow-up is going to be!
Here, however, we see the opening pages of several sections in this disgusting--but hilarious and educational!-- book that were written by yours truly.
Some marvelous illustrations in the rock section, all by Greg Oakes, with whom I have since become friends online!
This section below was probably the hardest to write as I had to watch a LOT of applicable scenes from various films to determine the most...the best...the...well...Yuck!
I wrote a number of limericks used elsewhere in the book but the two below were actually contributions from Lisa Mynx.
THE OFFICIAL BARF BOOK really is the perfect April Fool's Day gift. And it's cheap, too! Still time to get it by April 1st if you order today! See the Amazon Link below.
