Rainey, Jason – Desolate Funny Farm
Desolate Funny Farm
Yes, this is one of those books that you can judge by the cover. If you like fart jokes, you’ll love this book. If you don’t (and I don’t, but I did just hit 30, so what do I know?), then you might be more than a bit bored by chunks of this. Specifically I’m talking about the main story, about a boy who’s been farting his entire life uncontrollably and just trying to fit in, and the story on the inside cover about how you make comics by farting. Like I said, the humor didn’t do much for me, but there was more to this book that just those two stories. There was also the wordless tale of trying to get a turkey at the last minute on Thanksgiving and the secret behind the chicken at one of the big fast food chains, both of which were pretty funny stories. What you’re left with here is a mixed bag. Jason says in the afterward that he thinks he has all the fart jokes out of this system, and I hope that’s true. Still, plenty of folks like the fart jokes in whatever form they come, and if you’re one of those people you could do plenty worse that this. Here’s a website, this is $2, check out his stuff!
