When I was five I won a toy car at a carnival. The car had the number 23 painted on the side. The numbers of my birth year add up to twenty. I was born in the fifth month of the year. It's 5:13 as I'm typing this. Coincidence? No, my fine friend, I think not.

My most darling love muffin read this book and loved it and immediately gave it to me to read... and much like the other books she's passed on to me to read, I unfortunately wasn't digging it. However, unlike the previous books she's lent me *cough Waterdeep cough* this one wasn't bad... the reason I couldn't get into it was because half the time I had no idea what the h I was even reading. It just all seemed too disconnected (which, I KNOW is the point) and I couldn't really ...more
"religion" of which this book forms the Bible, and even run-on sentences are not eschewed; nay, they are another way of expressing the inherent Disorder (Praise Eris, Goddess of Disorder!) in the Universe.

I've seen the description "a religion disguised as a joke disguised as a religion," and it's fairly apt. I consider this book an introduction to a way o ...more
It might have hit a stronger chord in the 60's, before the idea of creating a new religion to shine light on the perversities of organized religion and human culture more broadly became relatively commonplace. I expect it *was* a shiny new notion back then, and I bet this book *did* ripple in the imaginations of the disenfranchised youth of the time. But to me, now, it read like t ...more
There's a thin line running here between genius and insanity, and he gets dangerously close to falling over both sides at the same time. Don't ask me to be more specific about what I'm talking about with this book. You'd be wasting your time.

I wonder what chaos these guys would have fnord unleashed if the interweb fnord had been around back in the day.
Yes there are 5...go back and count.
This is the anti holy text for the anti religion Discordianism, and it is pure greatness. I love how it manages to expose religious beliefs as the exaggerated superstitions they are and explore some pretty complex ideas without ever doing the reader the disservice of taking itself too seriously. Instead of tearing apart the rituals and beliefs of others it takes a self deprecating approach that is light hearted and laugh out loud funny yet shockingly insightful.
