Fuck This Book

Juvenile, profane, and timeless, Fuck This Book collects images of real public signs that have been mischieveously altered by stickers bearing the most expressive of all four-letter words. Addictively hilarious, the results show a world persuasively transformed. Please Don't Fuck the Pigeons, indeed. What happens if one triggers the Automatic Sprinkler Fuck Off Valve? And ...more

Fuck this book.

I saw this at one of my favorite indie bookstores over the weekend, this really intellectual pomo place (or something), with a huge philosophy section and they always play classical music, right? And there I was, just shrieking with laughter at this most crass and juvenile of jokes, showing like every page to my friends, scandalizing all the effete NYU-ers calmly trying to browse phenomenology. Ha!

Anyway! If you're the kind of person who can laugh at the same joke over and over and over (and, o

I couldn't help but purchase this book for a friend's birthday. This "author" has gone around town and placed the work "fuck" on signs of all types. This book contains photographs of the signs; some that are laugh out loud funny.
Perfect book for someone with a stupid sense of humor or someone who enjoys the "f bomb."

A fun pick-me-up for those with immature senses of humor. I guess you can say I "read" this, but I mostly flew through on a wave of guffaws (although the gimmick does tire after a while). "5 gallon FUCK bucket" is clearly the best entry.

A book of pictures where a mad had posted "fuck" in place of other words in signs across the world.

This is one of those things ... you will either think it's hilarious, or you're going to be terribly offended by it. (Well, the title should have been a clue.)

It's a collection of photos depicting signs where single words have been exchanged by the word “Fuck”. Yes, it's as juvenile as it sounds, but works much better than you'd think. Also, I would have expected that this can't possibly be funny for 150 pages – but I'd have been wrong, though not everything is roll-on-the-floor material.

This book made me giggle and laugh and lightened my mood for the day. I appreciated it. It is a simple idea, but funny, and the composition of the photos is good. I really liked it.

Absolutely hilarious. Everything around you can be made super hysterical when you add in the most versatile word in the English language.
Feb 10, 2014 Rachael rated it it was amazing
i am tempted to take an x-acto knife to this book and frame my favorites in collage format. i was, however, slightly disappointed i didn't see a single "jesus 'fuck's me" bumper sticker or "god 'fuck's you" church sign. because then i really would defile this book and frame either of those things.

A few good puerile laughs. But don't mess with people's 'lost pet' signs. That's just fucked.
Apr 07, 2009 Libby rated it it was amazing
Aaah I savoured this one over some lunch and enjoyed it greatly. The word Fuck is so is the most useful word in the english fave was the one on Bernard's parking spot...poor Bernard, I guess he is rather important as he has his own reservation, but not important enough to be spared from fucking stickers.

I wish I "wrote" this book...

My 19 year old son got this for Christmas. He and his elder brother and his father all found it to be the most hilarious book ever. I thought it was amusing in a hipstery postmodern kind of way, but such a one-trick pony (yes, I know that's part of the joke). I kept wondering what Banksy would do. Certainly not this, or at least not more than once.

Lololololol. Dude. This reminds me of something I saw yesterday... It was Count Count from Sesame Street, and he was singing about how much he loved to count. But the dude censored it every time he said count. "And when I'm all alone... I even **** myself." Priceless, almost as priceless as this book. ALMOST. Made my day. :)

What is more hilarious than transforming mundane public signs into chuckle inducing works of art by adding a simple sticker that says “Fuck”?? I now find myself mentally inserting the word Fuck onto signs during my commute to and from work. Juvenile and laugh out loud funny!
Jun 26, 2008 Mike rated it it was amazing
Very humorous picture book where the author has attached stickers with the word "Fuck" onto already existing public signs to alter the original signs meaning to hilarious comments.
Dec 25, 2011 Alison rated it liked it
I'm hesitant to say I "read" this book, but I must confess that without it (in all its delightful immaturity) I wouldn't reach my 2011 goal. I will stop at nothing.

The Aristocrats joke of photography, thus proving a picture is not always worth 1000 words. Sometimes one will suffice.

It was ok. Some of the signs made me giggle but I felt like it was a bit repetitive at times. It was a quick read though.

There is a link to the website here. Go there. It is so wrong, but you will not be able to stop laughing.
