Dr. Suess Does Die Hard by The Single Screenwriter

The movie was broke down into forty something rhyming pages, and it was good. Although I can't get any info on the writer, he did one helluva good job parodying one of the best action films of all time.
The whole book took like 3 minutes to read though. He should've incorporated the second and third films as well. Still it was a fun read. Yippee-ki-yay!

The Hunger Pains: A Parody (Harvard Lampoon) - The Harvard Lampoon


For more reviews, check out my blog Craft-Cycle

I read The Harvard Lampoon's, Nightlight, a few years ago and thought it was worth a few laughs so when I found this in the clearance section, I thought it was worth a try.

Unlike Twilight, I actually like The Hunger Games so I wasn't sure how this would go. However, I freaking loved this book. It was hilarious. Great mix of stupid and clever humor. The names were perfect (Cinnabon, Buttitch Totalapathy). It was like reading Captain Underpants for adults. Hilarious.

Yes, there were jokes made in poor taste (Pita's fatness, the Capital's "tranny" creations), but the book did not rely heavily on such ill-made punchlines. Overall, the book was filled with clever changes and funny critiques of popular YA literature (especially love triangles- what's with all the love triangles?). 

I also surprisingly enjoyed the new ending, probably more than the actual ending. Good read.

"There's pulling, jerking, stuffing, trussing. Fifty preparations. He promises we'll start out slow, with wine and a good oiling . . ."
Fifty Shades of Chicken: A Parody in a Cookbook - F.L. Fowler

Only a matter of time before I found this one (public library ebook from overdrive).  Full synopsis reads:


"Dripping Thighs, Sticky Chicken Fingers, Vanilla Chicken, Chicken with a Lardon, Bacon-Bound Wings, Spatchcock Chicken, Learning-to-Truss-You Chicken, Holy Hell Wings, Mustard-Spanked Chicken, and more, more, more!


Fifty chicken recipes, each more seductive than the last, in a book that makes every dinner a turn-on.


"I want you to see this. Then you'll know everything. It's a cookbook," he says and opens to some recipes, with color photos. "I want to prepare you, very much." This isn't just about getting me hot till my juices run clear, and then a little rest. There's pulling, jerking, stuffing, trussing. Fifty preparations. He promises we'll start out slow, with wine and a good oiling . . . Holy crap. "I will control everything that happens here," he says. "You can leave anytime, but as long as you stay, you're my ingredient." I'll be transformed from a raw, organic bird into something--what? Something delicious.


So begins the adventures of Miss Chicken, a young free-range, from raw innocence to golden brown ecstasy, in this spoof-in-a-cookbook that simmers in the afterglow of E.L. James's sensational Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy. Like Anastasia Steele, Miss Chicken finds herself at the mercy of a dominating man, in this case, a wealthy, sexy, and very hungry chef.


And before long, from unbearably slow drizzling to trussing, Miss Chicken discovers the sheer thrill of becoming the main course. A parody in three acts--"The Novice Bird" (easy recipes for roasters), "Falling to Pieces" (parts perfect for weeknight meals), and "Advanced Techniques" (the climax of cooking)--Fifty Shades of Chicken is a cookbook of fifty irresistible, repertoire-boosting chicken dishes that will leave you hungry for more.


With memorable tips and revealing photographs, Fifty Shades of Chicken will have you dominating dinner."

Celebrity Chef Zombie Apocalypse by Jack Strange
Celebrity Chef Zombie Apocalypse - Amanda Horan,Graeme Parker,Jack Strange


Celebrity Chef Zombie Apocalypse has got to be one of the funniest books I've ever read!


Full of social and political commentary, it impressed me with keen observations regarding "celebrity chefs", government officials and the police. I thought it was funny as hell that the zombies herein were yellow, which made me picture them as Simpson-like in my head. Not only were they chef zombies, they were sex-crazed celebrity chef zombies-used to getting their own way in all things. (I'm pretty sure I recognized one or two of them from real life as well, which just made things even more funny-especially with the foul-mouthed one.)



The Prime Minister in this book very much reminded me of the man currently in power here in the U. S. I'm sure that wasn't the author's original intention, but I couldn't help myself from thinking that.


I'm not sure that Jardine, the female police investigator was supposed to be funny, but I found her to be so. She finally solves the case,

pretty much AFTER everything was already over! 

(spoiler show)



 Dave, who became the protagonist, 

after all the other protagonists were dead!,

(spoiler show)

  finally got fed up with trying to warn everyone about what was happening and decided to take off with his girlfriend to an isolated area to wait the whole thing out; as you might have guessed, that didn't work out well.


Oh, and did I mention Henderson, the ginger zombie cat? I can't even think about him without laughing.


This book was a hilarious piece of work; decently written with tongue firmly in cheek. I highly recommend it to those of you who like your main dish bloody with a hefty side of humor!


*I was provided a free e-copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. This is it!
