The wacky tales of Iron Mike.

From Booklist:

Gellman is an e-columnist with attitude. On the uncensored (so far) Internet, he wallows in a bad-boy persona sadly familiar in its wholesale co-opting of black street jargon and nonstop, chest-thumping iconoclasm. Think Mike Royko sans perspective, using Andrew Dice Clay's vocabulary and he who used to call himself Prince's restraint. Gellman aspires to be jarring, so the foregoing shouldn't be taken as damning. The guy is funny, especially at the expense of the everyday schlubs in the wacky world of Iron Mike. "Iron Mike Does It Doggie Style," "Iron Mike Chucks a Bagel," and "Iron Mike Visits the Poontang Ranch" are just a few of the little screeds herein. In "Iron Mike Takes LD Classes," he suggests that "only a retard could have masterminded the U.S. embassy bombings in Africa that killed 174 people, but only 12 Americans." His solution to the much-vaunted "`dumbing' of our species" ? "Exile all almond-eyed babies to the already dumb-populated states like Iowa, Indiana, and Kentucky." Wotta demon! Mike Tribby
