These outrageous "Fairy tales for Grown-ups" are not for the easily offended! Follow Poona's twisted path to the Kingdom of Do (where no one did) and meet The Man Who Can Sell Anything, Suzy-Suzy Cyber-Assassin, Mr. Beer, space aliens and God (who will answer any question for five bucks). "It is smart, bold, and insightful, poignant without being preachy and meaningful without being sappy. Not to mention shit-yourself hysterical."-The Stranger. "...equal parts funny, angry, imaginative, crude and hopelessly over the top .... a quite brilliant theatrical mess ... a wicked and funny adult parody of children's stories."-Chicago Tribune. "[a] theatrical acid trip to the outer limits of modern mass-media manipulation ...."-New City. "much more fun than it ought to be."-The New Yorker. "Does Cats have singing penises?"-Willamette Week. "...this is [humor in] its lowdown downtown mode, and it is irresistible."-New York Times. "Like an early Marx Brothers movie, the comedy comes from any, and every direction, and it's just as nutty."-Show Business Weekly. "... the mutant bastard offspring of Lenny Bruce and Alfred P. Newman ...."-Northern California Bohemian. Nothing is sacred in this raucous assault on the power of language." Once apon a time, there was a little f**kdog who lived in the woods. Her name was Poona. Poona had no friends until her Fairy God Penis brought her a magical gift - a big pink box. Then a handsome prince came to play in Poona's big pink box. And came. And came again. Won't you come and play with Poona? Follow Poona's twisted path to the Kingdom of Do (where no one did). Meet The Man Who Can Sell Anything, Suzy-Suzy Cyber-Assassin, Mr. Beer, a pair of space aliens named Jasper and Cunt, and God (who will answer any question for five bucks). If Pee Wee's Playhouse had a kennel, Poona the Fuckdogwould board there. Poona is cartoonish yet clever, innocent and insidious, over the top but under the skin. Jeff Goode deftly deploys a child's fairy tales to skewer the adult world of crass commercialism, marauding media, and totalitarian technology. Spike the milk. Lace the cookies. And get way, way under the covers for Jeff Goode's hilarious and subversive bedtime stories for adults, Poona the F**kdog.
