Two years after the infamous Access Hollywood tape of our current President Donald Trump, comes a delightfully illustrated poetry guide to what is—and is not—available for grabbing.
In Please Don’t Grab my P#$$y: A Rhyming Presidential Guide, co-writers and masters of pop cultural comedy, Julia Young and Matt Harkins, use every possible euphemism for female genitalia, with campy pop culture rhymes, and accompanying illustrations, to make it abundantly clear what is available for grabbing—votes, leather seats, a joint—and what is definitely not. Among them, my rosebud, my wet bar, my panty hamster, or my wizard’s sleeve.
Please Don’t Grab my P#$$y: A Rhyming Presidential Guide is a timely and humorous rhyming picture book that is decidedly for adults with a good sense of humor. Think Go the F**ck to Sleep with a political bent. No matter who you are, or how dumb you are, you’ll be able to understand this book’s simple message: Hands off my pussy!
