Who's to say what's obscene?: politics, culture and comedy in America today
Fans of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and The Onion will appreciate this timely collection of satirical essays by counterculture icon Paul Krassner. With irreverence and an often X-rated wit, Krassner explores contemporary comedy, and obscenity in politics and culture from "Bong Hits 4 Jesus" banners to scenes cut out of recent movies, including Borat.
Paul Krassner's Contributions to the Counterculture: Watch a short history of Krassner's career from High Times.
Praise for Paul Krassner:
"He is an expert at ferreting out hypocrisy and absurdism from the more solemn crannies of American culture."
"Krassner has the uncanny ability to alter your perceptions permanently."
"I have been a fan of his since I was a snot-nosed kid, and his words have been a driving force and influence on my life... If you have read his work before, you know the joys that you are in for. If you haven't, start reading, and consider this your lucky day. For Paul Krassner is an activist, a philosopher, a lunatic and a saint, but most of all he is funny."
"Krassner is one of the best minds of his generation to be destroyed by madness, starving, hysterical, naked-but mainly hysterical."
