The Forbidden Fruit.

Come on. Bite it. You know you want to.

The snake says it’s okay.

Eve says it’s okay.

You’re curious, aren’t you, Adam?

Bite it.

You bit it, didn’t you?

It’s all right; we all make mistakes. Paradise wasn’t all it was cracked up to be, anyway. From now on, you’ll have to make your own way. Just you and Eve and your trusty talking goat sidekick, Phil Collins.

The book of Genesis. How bad could it be? Take a bite and find out for yourself.

“Someone’s been eating my gabagool!”
“Someone’s been sleeping on my couch! And there she is!”

They’re the cookies that bite back!

OK, Gretel, Dad says we need to move out and get a job.

Don’t look at me that way.

Hey, we can do it together. It’ll be fun.

Yes. I know we have no skills.

Well, you know how all those long-haul cookie delivery drivers left on their routes and never came back?

It’s perfect. Guaranteed employment. People need their sweets.

What? Danger? Nah, we’ll be fine.

Hansel and Gretel are two long-haul truckers, a brother and sister team, whose work order is simple: Deliver a truckload of cookies cross-country to an old witch in the forest.

They stop to pick up their load and notice something isn’t right. Pastries shouldn’t be bleeding and screaming and trying to escape their boxes.

Once upon a time, in an orphanage, lived a rather ugly child. Picked on mercilessly by her peers until one by one the orphans went missing. Now an old witch with a cookie addiction, she sits alone in her mansion made of sweets, waiting for her delivery of baked goods with the one special ingredient in them.

Will Hansel and Gretel make their delivery on time? Will they make it out alive? Will Hansel finally admit that Gretel is the better driver?

Indulge your appetite and feast your eyes on this new twist on an age-old tale.

Like reading Poe on mushrooms.

“A real mustn’t read.” -Every Critic Ever

Have you ever wanted to escape?

Ever wished you were a character in a story?

Be careful what you wish for.

I wanted that once, too.

And now here I am. And it sucks.

How did I get here?

What did I do to deserve this?

Trapped in the nightmarish world of Edgar Allan Poe

Sort of.

Why are these tales so much worse than the originals?

Why is everyone I meet so annoying? And what’s the deal with their wonky eyeballs?

E is for Eyeball is what happens when you put works of public domain into the hands of an incompetent lunatic.

Horrific. Hilarious. Ridiculous.

Franks Wurst is made of peeeeeeople!

My name’s Maria Shelton. I’m a cop.

…Well, private investigator, really.

….Ehh, no, I have no formal training or anything.

…Because I’m bored, that’s why.

In these last few generations, the world has seen such devastation.

The population has grown out of control. Resources are depleting. The horror of it all.

The solution?

Designer children.

Parents surrender their children from birth so that new ones can be made from the best parts.

Yeah, like Frankenstein.

The ones who aren’t so lucky grow up “Normal”.

Like me.

Lower class.

Unable to land good jobs.

Mistakenly killed by police with greater and greater frequency.

Some of us disappearing without a trace.

The world is almost out of food.

Frank’s, the popular hot dog chain, is no longer selling their world-famous wieners. Meat is no longer available.

Enter “Franks Wurst”, a new superfood sausage made up of plankton and God knows what else.

But I’m getting a feeling I know what “what else” is.

And I’m going to prove it if it’s the last thing I do.

And it just may be the last thing I do.


It’s Frankenstein meets Soylent Green. Mary Shelley meets Charlton Heston. A crazy tale that you’d come to expect only from this author.

By the way, he can’t tell you what Franks Wurst is made of, but what he can say is it is not not people.

I smell the blood of a…!

Well, you all know the story.
Jack is a poor farm boy living with his mother.
Having to milk cows to keep the bill collectors at bay.
Till one day a man comes by and gives him an enhancement pill that makes him sprout a giant boner
Which he climbs all the way up to Giant Land.

I mean, sure, we all know that part.
But from there, things take a twist.

From the weirdest author you know
Comes a surprisingly heartwarming tale.

One of love, family, and big old boners.

And President Mel Gibson?

America is in trouble, dudes.

The country is in ruins after the president walls it up, sealing it like a giant prison. The rich get richer and the poor starve to death in the streets. Enter the Invaders, a secret society led by a charismatic and flawlessly handsome dude named Dave. Their mission: Destroy the forces in D.C. and take back the U.S.A.!

Starlet Richter is your typical transgender American woman. After years of watching the place fall apart, she’s gonna do something about it. Eric Tisdsale is Starlet’s long-lost love. He’s making a pretty mundane living as a pool shark, until one phone call changes everything.

Will they save each other? Themselves? The world? How about when they discover the president is not actually human, and there may be more of his kind hiding among us?

“The worst thing you’ll read all year!” raves the general population.

“Fake News!” cries D.T.

This book will steal your soul.

“This made my brain hurt.” -Anonymous Litigant

Those Eyes is a surrealist romantic comedy originally penned by a group of Benedictine monks in a trailer at a maple syrup protest rally. The manuscript went through several revisions, and even one book-burning demonstration, and is now nothing like the original text. It has been translated into one language: This one. It’s packed with extra comedy, a whole lot of love, a splash of the ghastly, and more than a touch of the bizarre.

The author would like it to be known that he realizes he has no business making memes.

Up till a year ago, he couldn’t even pronounce the word.

It’s forgivable if someone pronounces “gif” with a hard “G”.

It is not forgivable if someone pronounces “meme” as “meh-may”,

The way one would say “grandmother” in Quebec.

Available in paperback here:




The author of this collection does not condone the viewing of these memes.

Nor does he think that they are a substitute for a good, solid education.

Stay in school.

Available in paperback here:



The author would like to apologize to the “meme-purists” of the world.

He is an old guy with Photoshop and too much free time on his hands.

These memes are not seeking to compete with the award-winning works of cyber-art we all know and love.

These are a mockery.

Available in paperback here:



The author would like you to know that, despite the title of this collection, there is nothing sexy whatsoever about these memes.

Available in paperback here:



The author would like to explain that this is a book of memes, and has nothing to do with underpants.

If you are looking for a book on underpants, and have purchased this book by mistake, he offers his sincerest apologies.

There are many fine books on underpants out there.

This is not one of them.

Das hier ist definitiv nicht Omas Lieblingsmärchen.

Jimmy DiFrenzo ist das Familienoberhaupt der Figarazzis, einer der härtesten Mafia-Familien der Gegend. Er liebt sein Gabagool, seine Goldketten und seine Brustbehaarung. Zusammen mit seiner hinreißenden Frau und ihrem gemeinsamen Sohn lebt er in einem hübschen Haus am Stadtrand. Das perfekte – wenn auch stereotype – Leben eines Amerikaners mit sizilianischen Wurzeln. Aber er hat Geheimnisse.

Blondie ist ein verwöhntes, reiches Mädchen. Bisher hat sie immer ihren Willen durchgesetzt. Doch als ihr ihr Leben zu langweilig wird, beginnt sie, in x-beliebige Häuser einzubrechen. Sie stiehlt nie etwas; sie sucht einfach nur den Nervenkitzel. Das läuft soweit auch ganz gut – bis es sie ins falsche Haus einsteigt.

„Jemand hat mein Haargel benutzt!“
“Someone’s been eating my gabagool!”„Jemand hat mein Gabagool gegessen!“
„Jemand hat auf meiner Couch geschlafen! Nämlich die da!“

JAber wer ist dieses blonde Miststück, das in Jimmys Haus eingebrochen ist? Hat sie sich wirklich nur durch Zufall ausgerechnet dieses Haus ausgesucht oder verfolgt sie einen Plan? Womöglich hat auch sie Geheimnisse.
