Overview

By a widely published author and father of 3 children, 12 books, and 1 kicking and screaming Inner Child that refuses to grow up or to go to sleep, this special edition of "I Will Not Go the F**k to Sleep" imagines:

--What if a child, asked to go the f**k to sleep by its father, could respond in adult language?

--A band of 5000 yogis flown in from India specifically to balance India's budget deficit by spilling coffee on their laps at 5,000 McDonald's restaurants.

--A Nuclear Weapons fire sale to help balance America's deficit

--What does it feel like to send your pet cat to a cat home or cat shelter, or to return a long-dead ex-chicken to an American supermarket?

--The story of an Indian men's magazine which ran a special Sex Issue, with condoms glued to the inside of the magazine for readers who might be too carnally provoked to search for a condom.

The e-book edition was No. 2 on Amazon's Political Humor bestseller list for nearly 5 weeks. This expanded Special Edition, while providing two chapters of comical Daddy-child interaction, and two other child or parenting-related essays, then moves into a broader world of no-holds-barred social, political, and sexual satire and intercultural humor, some of it new. For the first time, this book publishes the complete "Death of a Minister" a ferocious political satire with references to the Indian and American political landscape (John F. Kennedy and Camelot, for example).

"Hysterical and informative. For the rebel in you. Great style and humor"--Linda J. Lundy, Amazon 5-star review

"Inspired silliness, Pythonesque goofiness, political bite."--Laurie Boris, Author of "The Joke's on Me."

Meet the Author

Benny Profane is a character in a Thomas Pynchon novel, and also the pseudonym occasionally used by Richard Crasta, the India-born, New York resident author of 12 books including "The Revised Kama Sutra", "What We All Need," "Impressing the Whites," "The Hunger for Touch and Love," and "The Killing of an Author." The occasionally profane Benny is also the author of the short e-book "A Short History of Peckers."

Benny (no relation to Ben Gay or Benny Hill) appreciates a wide range of humor, from Evelyn Waugh and absurd Monty Python skits (The Ministry of Silly Walks, and Charles Dickens with two ks) to the Marx Brothers, "Family Guy," and "South Park," the television series.
