Who's in charge?

Only one man behind the curtain here. Ian Bates, a Graphic Design student at York College of Pennsylvania.


I'd love to hear from you, and will try my hardest to reply as quickly as I can.


Write hate mail, take a poop on the book and send it to me, do your worst. If you paid for it, I really don't care what you do with it.

About the Books

This parody book pair will rack your brain, melt your heart, and slap you in the face. Geared toward college student, the ideas in these books can certainly be applied to those of the older – or ancient generation.

You will laugh, you may cry, and most of all get a reality check. These books are not for the faint of heart. Offensive material is evident, and children under the age of 14 shouldn't read these without appropriate consent from adults. Yea, like they read anyway.

–Michael Caruso

"My six figure paycheck sure has the ladies begging for more… money that is. But, she looks good, and I get to see her naked."
–William Henson

"My new man smells like a dirty butthole, wears super huge clothes, and drinks all day. I love him with all my heart."
– Sarah Fitzsimmons
