Did you hear about the experiment of 'how does reading work' where there were many spelling mistakes in the middle of words and they testd how fast you could read and how much you noticed? This is the implmentation!

Even the priests' swearing is in correct grammar - unlike colloquial books!

a book so great you will call it another religion

the words are so powerful they literally leap from the pages

a great read when your on the go

once you finish reading it please let me know what the plot is

just strap the 6000 pages to your chest for a bulletproof vest

its great for knocing sense in to people, literally

it makes a grea baseball bat or a tennis racket

now the hardcover cna be used as a bike helmet

the books new sented pages will drive your friends and family away

when the dentist wants to put a led bib over your balls tell him "no thanks i brought my own"

makes a great wedding gift

great for making your biceps stronger

you can use it at your next stand-up show to defend yourself from the bottes they throw at you

now comes with a medical kit

dont worry it will make you cry, it will make you mad, it will make you say things like "why" and "what did i do to deserve this".

disclaimer: my spelling ability is limited [Wall Bash] [Cry]
