A Brief Glimpse
Into A Typical Dysfunctional American Household
I could've lived just fine without this particular glimpse, but if I have to experience it, so do you. Besides, it made me laugh, so it's worth sharing.

A Concise Review
I'm writing this little blurb twenty months after the review was made, and I still don't know what it means. At this point, I can only assume I never will.

Intelligent Progressive Individuals Counter The Bigoted Neocon Drones
