About this deal

In all he published more than 20 collections of drawings, including Odd Visions and Bizarre Sights (1983), Uniformity (1986), A Bruise of Bouncers (1987), Battered Lawyers and Other Good Ideas (1989), Odd Dogs (1989), Holy Unacceptable (1990), Commuted to Life (1992), Everybody's Doing It (1993) and three children's books featuring the teddy bear Tough Ted. He also illustrated two books by Alan Abel, Don't Get Mad, Get Even! A Manual for Retaliation (1983) and How to Thrive on Rejection: A Manual for Survival (1985), as well as Percy Richer's Richer's Legal Nuggets (1987) and Tom Isitt's Secrets of the Queen's Closet (1988). His last published book was 101 Uses of a Dead Roach (2002) with an "epitaph" by the celebrity drug-dealer Howard "Mr Nice" Marks. It's a well known fact that indoor cats live much longer. While I'm eating salmon, you'll be a golf club." Time called the author and illustrator, Simon Bond, "the Charles Addams of ailurophobia." He received hate mail accusing him of obscenity and sadism.

Before the fur started flying, Maslow interrupted, "Wait guys. What if this book is for real? Someday we could be life preservers or worse. What happens to us after we're gone?" This little book was loaned to me by a fellow woodcarver, John Panhorst, saying he thought I might enjoy it. And enjoy it I did! Took me all of maybe 20 minutes to “read,” with a smile/smirk/grimace on my face.American Opinion stated that those who read the book should be "prepared to be disgusted or appalled from time to time". [6] So there are depictions of such things as paws being used as pencil holders (and, relatedly, a cat pencil sharpener (guess where the pencil goes); cats as ice skates; cats as oven mitts; cats as golf clubs; and the list goes on and on, resulting for me in LOL and grimace, sometimes at the same time.

I saw this & remember reading it when I was 10 or so. My mom (who's an avid cat-lover) bought it or got it as a gift. It's similar to those Far Side joke/comic books which were also popular at the time. Single picture joke books that were mildly amusing & contained maybe 2 or 3 really funny ones. For some reason I can only remember one of the uses for dead cats. A pic of a lady wearing two dead cats as oven mitts (yes, her hands were up their bums).
