Way back in the day, when I was new to drawing peoples faces for a living I ran across a couple of people that still pop up in my memory. This book jogged it to the front of my brain once again.

Picture a rather large Italian American man, think Chris Christie, think Tony Soprano. Now picture this mans child of the approximate age of 7. Listen...hear the heavy New Jersey accents......and....

Tony: So, uhh, d'ya tink yous can draw my kid?

Me: Um, sure. ?

Kid: Awe c'mon dad! I wanna ride some coasters!

Tony: Shut the F@&k up! Don't yous see I'm talking to the lady here? Where's your F#&kn' manners! (slap to the back of the head).

Kid: F$#k dad! Dat hurt!!


Tony: Shut the F#@k up....I mean it! Sit down, the nice lady is gonna draw you. Does he have to sit still miss?

Me: (gulp) It helps.

Tony: Sit down, shut up and don't you F&*kn' move or I will slap your F&*kn' head off! You hear me?

Kid: Yeah dad I F&*kn' hear you, I won't F&*kn' move....promise.

It went on like this through the entire sketch. It was all I could do not to burst with laughter. I really wasn't ready to die yet. Did I mention the kid was seven?

I find it HILARIOUS when little kids drop the F bomb. I know it would not be funny if all of them did it, but it is just so funny when it happens....that such a innocent little angelic face can produce this word makes me giggle.

I think Tony would have no issue reading this book to hid children. In fact I don't think he would realize it was a joke.

Petra X I think we all said them at some point but they were going to learn those words anyway at some point!

Gary Very funny and too true to be passed away as fantasy...

Stephanie Hey everyone. Audible has this as a free download read by Samuel L. Jackson....that's right!

Kemper When you were done, did you say, "Here's your f**king picture."?

Stephanie No! I wanted to live. It was all I could do to hold my laughter in. Funny thing was that the kid was doing just fine, but the dad kept threatening bodily harm every 20 seconds, which would then make him reply "I'm not f**kin' movin' dad", which made him move.
