Description

"A howlingly funny parody. … The copy for the fake products is pitch perfect. I wish the Camping Coma Pills were really for sale - I'd take them." —BoingBoing.com

The towering sequel to a "comedy classic" (Austin Chronicle), SkyMaul 2 picks up where its "brilliantly funny" (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette) predecessor left off. Bursting with boatloads of fantastic stuff—from the Catbox Viewing Dome to the Bullet-Allowing Vest to the Wearable Coatrack—SkyMaul 2 will win your laughter with humor that sparkles as it cleans.
