[EPUB] ✸ Baboon Fart Story: An Experiment Inspired by Chuck Wendig ✽ P.T. Phronk – Submitalink.info I read Baboon Fart Story It makes me want to be a better man.I actually own a Kindle version of the story and I expect it to be worth something in a few years because there were only a handful of sales beforegave it the yank The cover art alone makes this one a keeper The plot is rich with a commentary on our modern world The writing is strong and this is a rare gem in a storming, frothy, fart filled ocean of self published dreck. The author is going to hate me for publishing a four star review of this work but I ll give it four stars for the same reason I gave the massively well thought out, funny The Rude History of English four stars.That is to say, this is not a book for everybody In fact, it may be a book few people read from cover to cover ever It is a book with a very limited purpose, which is upfront about that purpose, whose intent and audience are very, very narrow.Make no mistake this is, as advertised, The author is going to hate me for publishing a four star review of this work but I ll give it four stars for the same reason I gave the massively well thought out, funny The Rude History of English four stars.That is to say, this is not a book for everybody In fact, it may be a book few people read from cover to cover ever It is a book with a very limited purpose, which is upfront about that purpose, whose intent and audience are very, very narrow.Make no mistake this is, as advertised, SPOILER WARNING the word fart written 100,000 times That s about it But the concept of this workofart see what I did there , drawn from a comment by author Chuck Wendig, begged to be executed, and that s what Phronk has done.This is, make no mistake, the literary equivalent of Marcel Duchamp s Fountain, the famous autographed urinal submitted to the New York City art scene in 1917 That is to say, it s brilliantly Dadaist but also a sublime work of trollery It s a postmodern comment on the nature of art and self publishing It is, in fact, a work of art.But it s not a book for people who want to read a real book, any than Fountain is a work of art for people who want to look at real marble sculptures.I can see this as a wonderful gag gift for that special self publisher in your life I can see it as an interesting talking point for a university class in philosophy, or English literature, or print history the kind of thing you d amuse students with for 30 years if you had it on your shelf But it s not the kind of book you d want to make them order copies of It s literally the word Fart written 100,000 times.If you know that, you have a good idea of who should buy this book, and why It s definitely a limited use purchase To Kill A Mockingbird it ain t But it is the very best example of a certain kind of anti literature, a standoffish comment and curiosity piece on the nature of self publishing.The author is seriously one of the best authors I ve read in the self published market of course, no matter how well his other work is received, Baboon Fart Story continues to outperform everything else he s written critically, as people find it hilarious to submit four and five star reviews of a book consisting of nothing but the word fart I m one of those people who has extolled, jokingly, the work s brilliance But theI sit back and think of it, theI think that as a commentary, as a work of art rather than an exercise in narrative, there s something to the surreal absurd fact of this book s existence The author s growing frustration with Baboon Fart Story as its success continues to swell is now just onefacet of the artwork itself This book is ruining my life. The best part was when he said, fart. Fart 1 Fart fart fart 2 Fart fart 3 1 It is kind of like what would happen if Kenji Siratori s Blood Electric had been written about a scatological journey to find the meaning of life, for those people who bought Dave Coulier s fart CD, A Blast from the Pants, and listened to it 2 Now that I think about, this reminds me of the programming language Ook, except with subtle fart sounds instead of gregarious orangutan ooks Had this been Orangutan Fart Story, I would have assumed an oblique Fart 1 Fart fart fart 2 Fart fart 3 1 It is kind of like what would happen if Kenji Siratori s Blood

experimental work feels a littleshall we sayone dimensional Though we would need to assemble a focus group of third grade boys to answer this question, it feels as though this works adds little to either the world of farting, or the world of literature Though we ought not judge a book by its cover, we should feel free to judge a book by its title, and there, I am forced to admit that baboons are not mentioned in the book, nor the connection to baboons and gastro intestinal themes In fact, the book never veers from strictly enteric terrain.Ultimately, one must however conlude never look a gift baboon fart story in the mouthor the anus, for that matter I have long wondered why the fart stories of other mammals were published to great acclaim, yet the baboon s fart story received no attention at all As our primate ancestor, it must be argued that the baboon and his fart story are part of the Great Fart Story of Mankind, a fart story that Charles Darwin first shed light on, a fart

services rendered to the humble baboon Did the humble baboon ask not to have a fat story No, I daresay not Yet, historians have ignored that story for as long as fat stories have been compiled in the anals of Western literature which is an awfully long time, if you think about it One must also praise Mr Phronk for his masterful leitmotif of the baboon urinating into its own mouth Whatpowerful statement could be made that our Mother Earth is comprised of limited resources, and we have a duty to conserve and recycle those resources Should we not emulate the enlightened baboon How much better quality of life could we all share, if we all were brave enough to urinate into our own mouths to slake our thirst whenever the urge arose I say a social movement must get underway Indeed, we should loby our representatives to call March, National Baboon Conserve Water By Drinking One s Own Urine Month We should all take the NBCWDOOUM Pledge Ipledge to drink my own urinefor one month and , if I am able.Then I will kiss my spouse.I will save Mother Earth and baboons.My urine is a river that flows back to the source.I have talents and abilities.I have Power N Stuff.I am a whole person.Love me In A Blog Post By Author Chuck Wendig, He Addressed The Truism That Self Publishing Is The Only Real Choice For Authors Today Self Publishing Is Like Getting To Jump Right Onto Your Flight And Go Wherever You Want To Go, And Traditional Publishing Means Submitting To An Invasive Colonic Cavity Search Before You Re Even Allowed Near The GateThis Is True Ish, In That I Can Literally Write The Word Fart , Times And Slap A Cover Of A Baboon Urinating Into His Own Mouth, Then Upload That Cool Thing Right To Nobody Would Stop Me Whereas, At The Kept Gates, A Dozen Editors And Agents Would Slap My Baboon Fart Story To The Ground Like An Errant Badminton Birdie Should We Just Take Chuck S Word For It Of Course Not His Hypothesis, Like Any Other, Needs To Be Put To The Test Can I Literally Get Onto Virtual Store Shelves Via Chuck S Described Method Can One Simply Walk Into Self Publishing Like A Damn Hobbit This Book Is The Word Fart Written Times You Are Literally About To Buy The Word Fart, Written Over And Over There Is A Picture Of A Baboon Drinking Piss On The Cover For Some Reason, But Other Than That, It S A Whole Lot Of The Word Fart It S Also A Biting Critique Of Quality Control In Self Publishing Or Something Thanks A Bunch
