If you are a regular reader of W1nners’ Club content, you’ll know that we have a fairly relaxed attitude to some of the content we carry on our website. Unfortunately however, as a result of our long standing reputation for open-mindedness, certain shall we say – er, ‘niche’ publishers see us as a soft option and regularly ask us if we’ll review their latest releases. Whilst we’re always willing to lend a hand in supporting the publishing industry, we found out the hard way that sometimes it’s better to be selective when associating yourself with the promotion of certain book titles. Here is a list of some of the strangest books we’ve ever been asked to review.
We’re sure there must be a huge market for rectal probe literature, but you can’t really blame us for refusing to open this book – let alone review it? The first thought we had upon seeing the cover was whether Dr. Dick Likkens is the author’s real name or a pseudonym?
Whilst we’re no experts on the children’s book market, we didn’t think religious book content sat well with our brand. Mums may indeed turn to booze when their children are being naughty, but we’re not sure you should be telling your kids that until they’re at least old enough to drink themselves!
There isn’t really much to say about this one is there? We just hope the fire gets put out pretty darn quickly!
There would be no W1nners’ Club today if it wasn’t for the amount of time we spent pretending to pay attention in English lessons, but even we might have listened a bit more if the subject had a different name – for no reason other than shock and disbelief!
Sibling rivalry can be a problem in any family, but when somebody writes a book about it, the problem must be several thousand times worse. The big question is how many parents out there would compound matters by actually buying a copy and giving it to their rejected offspring?
On the face of it, being a member of a cult isn’t that bad depending on the cult. Most of our colleagues here at The W1nners’ Club have supported their local football team since childhood – which in our opinion is a sort of cult if you think about it. We’re just a bit concerned that the kids in this photo might all be half siblings – as is the case with the sort of cults that hide themselves away at remote farmhouses in Waco, Texas waiting for the end of the world.
The first question any suspicious child of a single parent should ask the person that is attempting to shag their mother who happens to be referred to locally as ‘Weird Wayne’ is: “Why does everybody call you Weird Wayne?” Upon receiving a satisfactory answer, the child in question should then give their blessing for the commencement of the courtship…………we think?
Good old dad – always prepared for a family day out in the countryside!
In the event of an impending nuclear holocaust, it’s best to be prepared. The last thing you’d want is for the kids to be bored whilst waiting to be vaporised by a foreign enemy, as that would amount to bad parenting.
Child education is all about teaching good habits from an early age. What better way to teach your kids about life than by explaining to them that everybody ends up like the engine in the end? We’re even considering using this book as a staff training manual here at The W1nners’ Club.
