Lifesaving.

This book cured my cancer. Unfortunately, all the ass I got because of having read this book caused me to contract herpes.

I am, or rather used to be a huge Maddox fan. I enjoyed his site, recommended it to friends and bought the first edition of his book. I was excited to read the book, I find his honestly crude and mean humor funny. However the book disapointed me, I felt like more of his web posts were much more comical then this book. Since the book Maddox has all but abandoned the site that launched his career. I don't blame him, he's busy with many other projects and writing on a site that I can't imagine he profits a lot from due to lack of advertisers probably isn't huge on his list of priorities. However I feel like him relaunching his book with a different cover and probably a few new pages written half-assed is kind of selling out. This is exactly the kind of thing that he would criticize on his web site and now, money hungry or just an experiment to see how many of his followers will purchase another copy, he has chosen to go the typical money whoring route. I won't be buying this new edition, nor will I proably even bother to read the new updates at the local bookstore while pretending I have intentions to buy it.

    Hallowed be thy name, Maddox.

    This is God. Yes, I own a computer. This book is so good, I am formally renouncing all books of the Bible, in every translation and interpretation, and am personally seeing to the immolation of a major orphanage in order to celebrate the coming of the true gospel. In fact, I have already humbly asked Maddox to be his personal assistant. I hope he calls back.

    Maddox and God should be used in the same sentence.

    Maddox. Finally a man worth talking about. A man we should prostrate ourselves in front of. A man who should have his own book in the bible. We should all feel privilaged to be able to be called servents to the King of Kings. A legend in the anals of time, a staple of power and awe on the Internet, A fable to those generations to come, And a god to the men and women who look to him for guidance.

    This will win the Pulitzer and Nobel Prizes in Literature

    I base my life on the teachings of Maddox. You should too. This book is better than the Old Testament, New Testament, and Quaran wrapped in an American flag.
