Darcy | 4 comments The book is about the adventures of 2 guys. Middle aged One owns a wine shop - He named it "The Pet Store" because he didn't want to pay for a new sign.

The plot of the book is the 2 buddies get into a bad/tight situation and have to figure out a way to get out. The entire book contains many of these scenarios, each one they get out of - - lands them in another one.

Examples (Not actual Scenarios - I can't remember the exact ones): They go to a local convience store to buy beer, as they leave the store, 2 weird middle age guys pass them going in. Later, one of the buddies gets pulled over for speeding and finds out he and his buddy are wanted for sticking up a convience store.

While they are in jail, waiting to explain their side of the story, a riot occurs and they are taken hostage.

They end up being hidden in crate in a warehouse, while the kidnappers ask for ransom. However, they end up being put in with other crates being shipped to Brazile.

They end up on a ship that starts sinking, they escape and get into a dingy which is then hijacked, Pirates leave them on an island near shipping lanes, however a hurricane is coming so boats are not going by.

The two writers were interviewed by NPR and explained that they swapped writing, each writing the other into a corner. Leaving the other to figure out how to get out of it, and into another situation.

It is hilarious. The audio version of the book the writers did the narration.

Abashed and apologetic.

Don't be - it sounds great, and I wouldn't have known about it otherwise!

Darcy | 4 comments Thanks Sam,

One sad point on the book - there too much use of the word F*CK in the book, which is really to0 bad, as it doesn't add to the plot.
