UPDATE: We reached the goal point, but since it's a pre-order, we are far from finished. I want as many people who want this to pre-order, so don't be shy.
A hilarious parody screenplay for Rogue One in beautiful paperback!
Imagine if an absurdly hilarious, raunchy version of Rogue One came out and you owned the screenplay... this is exactly that!
The Rebel Assliance must steal plans for a deadly weapon of ass destruction from the Empooper.
Here are some reviews for my previous effort, The Farts Awakens:
"I bought this after I heard it existed and I'm glad I did; now I want to share it with all of my fellow Star Wars nerds."
"Going into this book, I knew I was going to get a lot of bathroom humor, and yes, it's there in spades. What I didn't expect is some of the sharp and incisive jokes about the nature of parody. Takes our remix/mashup culture and puts it on it's head. Laugh out loud and thought provoking."
"Really loved this parody, it reminds me of those old 'Bored of the Rings' parody books, but contemporary and hilarious. Definitely a bargain for a priceless read."
A year ago, on a whim, I wrote The Farts Awakens: A Star Wars Parody (You can read a 24 page sample here) I wanted to make a Star Wars parody book that used aggressively dumb puns and plot elements, while still telling a "Star Wars story."
In keeping with tradition I have been working on Scrote One: A Star Wars Parody book and will be releasing it alongside the film. This fundraiser is for pre-orders, so if you donate you are guaranteed a copy.
A book, you say?
The book is written as a screenplay, to capture the cinematic feeling of the movies. It is a quick, fun read.
But, a book about scrotes and farts? Why?
I can't help but imagine that a lot of people think a project like this is stupid, and it really is. So for those of you asking why, I respond with an excerpt from the foreword of The Farts Awakens, written by Julian Stern:
"But the “Why” of The Fart Awakens cannot be summed up as simply, “Because it hadn’t been done before.” Nor can it be dismissed as a hasty scheme to capitalize on the release of one of the most anticipated films in the history of cinema.
It is both of those things, yes, but more than that, it is a product of a man who just works differently. In any sort of creative endeavor, it’s easy to waste time weighing whether an idea is too stupid or too ambitious or not worth the effort. We often chalk that up to “just part of the creative process.”
Well, if that were the case, you would not be holding this book in your hands because Joe Cabello skips that step every time. Why? Because, more than anybody, he knows that in doing the thing, you make it worth the effort.
There are characters named Rando Cockjizzian and Handjob Solo in this story. Very stupid names. But Joe doesn’t worry about whether they’re too stupid. He just makes sure they aren’t by giving them wants and doubts and challenges and loves.
So apologies to my girlfriend, but we should never ask why someone creates. We should ask why it’s so hard for the rest of us. For Joe, it’s simple: do or do not; there is no why."
A dollar from each book will be going to the ACLU.
