The Only Bush I Trust Is My Own

Periel Aschenbrand, Author Jeremy P. Tarcher $9.95 (197p) ISBN 978-1-58542-420-7
Aschenbrand, who founded the T-shirt business, Body as Billboard, and identifies herself as ""half Israeli and half New York Jew,"" shares some of her thoughts about the world, which-apart from the left-wing slogans-feature the type of humor appreciated by Howard Stern fans. Many of Aschenbrand's opinions pertain to religion. For example, she can't believe a friend is a Mormon: ""I was like, insofar as I'm concerned, the Mormon missionaries are like serial killers in that they prey on people weaker than themselves."" Christians? The ""pope knows that God doesn't exist. That's the secret of his fucking power."" At the airport, she won't board her flight because there's a ""tall shady-looking fucking Arab who looks like a terrorist"" in line. Aschenbrand also explains how she came up with the idea for her T-shirt business. ""We should use our tits to make people think,"" she thought, so she printed up shirts with slogans like ""drug dealer"" for an organization that raises money to send AIDS medication to children in Africa. Readers may also enjoy Aschenbrand's witty confrontations with her mom over anal sex and her suspicions that her proctologist is aroused by examining her... Or maybe they'll just want to buy the T-shirt.
