The Kosher Guide to Imaginary Animals has been so popular already, despite not officially being released until tomorrow, that we’ve already been commissioned by Tachyon to do a sequel, aimed at a more general audience.

—Will include 90 entries on different types of “tainted meat” throughout history.

–Copious and mouth-watering illustrations by John Coulthart, who designed the first book.

–Evil Monkey’s discussion with Ann and with a third party, Mord, pictured below.

–Extended recipes discussion between Ann and chef Bobby Flay on the best way to serve “bloat meats”.


Excerpt from the Entry on “A Diseased Sow on Cobblestone Street, Frankfurt, 1502″:

Evil Monkey: Is it suitable for goyim consumption? Pig is pig, no?

Ann: I’m Jewish, how would I know?

    If that book were available, I’d read and review it. I pray there are no references to rabid squirrel consumption?

    Well, it’s not available yet–we just announced it!

  3. Larry says:

    Of course! I just meant if it were available, not when it is available. Or so I think, I think…
