I think it’s safe to say that strange days are upon us. Politics be crazy, the weather apocalyptic, and AI is inviting itself into our reality. I’m pretty sure most people are walking around with their overall disposition set to ‘fear-mode’, and I’m certainly not judging; if you squint just the right way, it all kind of makes sense. I heard a story today about how a long time ago one of the supposed first english speaking blokes landed on Australia. They met some locals, exchanged pleasantries, when suddenly a large animal with a baby in it’s pouch came hopping out of the brush. “What the F#$k is that?!” the english speaking bloke exclaimed. “Kangaroo,” replied the local. And so, …

Spring is upon us, which means Hard-Boiled-Egg-Scavenger-Hunt Day is here as well, and we at BumBumBooks would like to suggest introducing some balls into this year’s Easter festivities. But what about the eggs you ask? No worries! You can continue hiding your decorated chicken fair, AND, at the same time, throw in the hilarity of balls! All you need is a copy of Do You Want To Play With My Balls?, as well as the much anticipated sequel Do You Want To Play With My Box?, and your backyard will be filled with so much joy, even the bunnies will be laughing 🙂 Happy spring! Matt

Balls, Boxes, & Beers, Oh My!

The Green day of drunkenness is nearly upon us, where American’s scour their genealogy for the smallest percentage of Irish decent, don their Notre Dame shirts and plastic clover hats, and carefully craft an excuse for taking off work in preparation of an epic hangover. What more does one possibly need? Laugher. Straight up, pun-filled, hilarity that will make you king of the pub. And, with our books in hand, you can peacefully reign over a belly-laughing, drunken kingdom of cosplay leprechauns cheering your name! So, get your copies of the most festive books know to man/womankind, be safe, and have a wonderful St. Paddy’s day! Matt
