DIY Dentistry and Other Alarming Inventions

Authors: Riley, Andy

Publisher: Penguin Publishing Group

ISBN: 9781101155462

Classification: Non-Fiction

Synopsis: Deranged devices and comic contraptions from the highly inventive and hilarious genius behind The Book of Bunny Suicides.

Much like his hero, Renaissance man Leonardo da Vinci, bestselling author Andy Riley is not just an artist (or a liar)—he's an inventor. Imagine, if you will:

• The easily assembled Pole-Dancing-Club-in-a-Briefcase for stranded businessmen
• Christmas tree ornaments that provide surveillance to instantly tell Santa if you?ve been bad or good
• A high-speed police response unit aptly named the Cop Catapult
• The Arsehole Trap, which can clear an average size town of arseholes in a single day with its promise of Big Brother auditions

Like a twenty-first-century Rube Goldberg on the wrong mix of meds, in DIY Dentistry and Other Alarming Inventions Andy Riley has created elaborate inventions that are often side-splittingly sociopathic and never short of patently hysterical.
