Ever wonder what would happen if Douglas Coupland's unhinged imagination met Graham Roumieu's insane knack for illustrating the ridiculously weird?
The answer is seven deliciously wicked tales featuring seven highly improbable, not only inappropriate, characters, including Donald the Incredibly Hostile Juice Box, Hans the Weird Exchange Student, Brandon the Action Figure with Issues and Kevin the Hobo Minivan with Extremely Low Morals. If you are over the age of consent, seriously weird or just like to laugh, you'll love the unlovable miscreants who unleash their dark and unruly desires on every page of these unsuitable, completely hilarious tales.
"No matter if you are old or young...this collection of cruel fables will undoubtedly charm. If you've been waiting for the gleeful pleasure of seeing cartoon characters getting to beat up the unsuspecting, or mock the foreign, or make small children puke, then this book is for you." Sonnet L'Abbé, The Globe and Mail
"Disturbing and hilarious." Edmonton Journal
"Seven short tales of intense irony and weirdness...accompanied by marvellous and moody sketches and drawings.... A lovely, quirky book." Toronto Star
