Funny the first time but not a keeper (not for me, anyway). ( )

Meh. This had its moments, but the bunny suicides books were so much better. ( )

If you're old-fashioned and pure of heart, this is not the book for you! But if you like slightly twisted off-the-wall humor, this book is hysterical. I still think my Dad wrote this book. I just know he didn't go to heaven, he's been re-incarnated as Andy Riley! Yup, the same kind of stuff I heard growing up but they can't be lies! Can they!?!
Hey if you grew up hearing old wive's tales, urban legends, or imaginative ramblings that were so much more interesting than the dry facts other poor kids had to put up with from their siblings or parents... Grab this book now :-) ( )

I laughed myself silly reading this. The author did Bunny Suicides, which is very funny, but much darker than this collection of cartoons and quips. Some of my favorite....

"Goldfish can text message. Drop your mother's phone in the fishbowl and you'll see."

"Wine makes Mommy clever."

"Keep a chicken nugget in a shoe box, leave it some water and corn, and soon it will grow into a live chicken."

"Beware of guitars! A small hairy primate called a 'warris' lives inside every one. They live on a diet of human fingers."

And so many more that I don't want to give away. The cartoons are great, too. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0452286247, Paperback)

On the heels of his runaway Bunny Suicides books, cartoonist Andy Riley turns his irreverent wit to another group of small creatures that lurk among us seemingly everywhere: children.

From the benign (every ant you meet must be named) to the truly cruel (Ronald McDonald is dead!), each hilarious cartoon has a tall tale to educate children and entertain wicked adults everywhere.
