Bart Simpson’s Manual of Mischief
Bart Simpson is truly the unrivaled master of mischief. Amateur pranksters around the world take their tips and learn their tricks from Bart, the sneakiest of sneaks. The nightmare of every sister and the destroyer of a calm composure for every grown-up, this clever kid knows how to push everyone’s buttons and get away with it all. Now Bart shares his mischievous secrets with the world, from the contents of the perfect spy kit to the ideal methods of agonizing annoyance. Packed to the brim with inserts and special features, including removable “Sneaky Hall of Fame” cards and a booklet on the complete art of the prank phone call, Bart Simpson’s Manual of Mischief includes everything you need to become a true technician of trouble. This is the second installment in the Vault of Simpsonology™ series and a follow-up to the wildly popular Homer Simpson’s Little Book of Laziness.
Homer Simpson’s Little Book of Laziness
Few men have reached the very pinnacle of apathy quite like Homer Simpson. His epic inertia is an example to us all. Now, for the first time, Homer reveals the secrets behind his extraordinary ability to get absolutely nothing done. From tips on how to avoid working at work to Homer’s suitably slapdash design for his “Lazy House of the Future,” this ode to the joys of sloth shows a true American idle at his lazy best. Also covering Homer’s lackadaisical take on classic art and his indispensable tips on lethargic eating, housework avoidance, and many more sluggish subjects, Homer Simpson’s Little Book of Laziness is a must-read for ne’er-do-wells everywhere. Packed with inserts and special features, such as an eight-page pullout Sloth Man comic and a foldout “Anatomy of a Layabout” feature focusing on fellow lazybones Barney Gumble, Homer Simpson’s Little Book of Laziness is absolutely bursting with inactivity.
