Called “I Am Fartacus,” the book is one that looks to be filled with childish insanity of the best kind. Does it include fart jokes? With a name like “I Am Fartacus” it damn well better! From the kickstarter page, it looks to have that and much more. Promising a farting device that makes your eyes open like an eagle, as well as evil clowns who invent jack-in-the-boxes that throw poison pies at kids, its got a whole lot going on! From the description, I can already tell my nieces and nephews would love it! (Read More)
