Product Description

Review

Reviews of the F U, Penguin blog:

'The internet is overrun with pictures of impossibly cute fluffy animals…Here, however, the same level of snarky vitriol usually aimed at dumb celebrities is targeted at the animal kingdom, exposing swans as nature's Porsche drivers, labelling polar bears as elitist and ponies desperate for attention.'
Guardian

'We think the blog F U, Penguin is one of the best things we've seen all year.'
NBC

'A blog where insults cute animals. I don't get it but I find it funny.'
Random person on a forum

'Half the internets are taken up with photos and videos of the CUTEST. ANIMALS. EVER. F U, Penguin takes a long, hard look at superadorable puppies, monkeys, sloths and moose - and tells them, in no uncertain terms, to get fucked. Needless to say, it's out new favourite website.'
Very Short List

'F U, Penguin is a hilarious answer to the cute overload that is currently sweeping the internet.'
Jezebel.com

‘Cuddly animals get their comeuppance.’
Associated Press

‘[The blog] is the ultimate antidote to puppycams.’
Wired magazine

‘A field guide to some of the worst culprits of cuddle-swindling, and a damn good read.’
Dig

‘Overall, F U, Penguin is an enjoyable irreverent jaunt through the animal kingdom. While perhaps not quite as funny as John Audubon’s satirical masterwork, The Birds of America, Gasteier’s work will have you begging for more. Highly recommended.’
A Penguin

‘Finally, a book for the rest of us! Most animals go about our business without playing to the audience like the elitists exposed in these chapters.I wasn't sure how many more times I could hear about those great penguins and pandas and kittens before I started eating people… well, more people, anyway.’
Jerry the Shark

‘Penguins killed my parents, and they would not hesitate to kill me. I thank the Crustacean God for Matthew Gasteier, a true saint and a decent human being in a world filled with heartless penguin accomplices.’
Dennis the Krill

‘It's all true. We're the worst.’
Anonymous Penguin

‘The average dolphin is far beyond this level of vulgarity, but I could see how this would be a very enjoyable book for humans. I should remember to hand these out to some of my slower relatives at the common ancestor reunion.’
Edward the Dolphin

About the Author

Perhaps surprisingly, the author created the blog - F U, Penguin - because he loves penguins. In fact, he simply can't get enough of penguins, or other cute animals for that matter.

Format: Hardcover
Some things are funny for no apparent reason. A collection of cutsie-pie pets and arse ugly animals is flayed with a full bore vitriol that is a pleasure to read. The especially disgusting creatures are treated to profane displays of outrage that they exist at all. Excellent.

The perfect antidote for those cloying, isn't-Mr-Snuggles-adorable-when-he's-dressed-like-Churchill websites.

It's a well written fusion of irony, wit and humour!
With added little fun facts along the way, perfect for after a long day.
