Save us from ourselves!

If you like the sound of these sentences: "Imagine saying the words, "I'll have the Buffalo Bleu-Sabi wings followed by the Motley Que Ribs and a Big Ol' Funkin' Pumpkin Ale." Hold on to that prickly blaze of shame roiling in your gut, and you're close to knowing the dull pain of every waking second spent inside this restaurant", maybe you want to read the rest of this great Salon piece about Guy Fieri's robust and frightening empire?

The We Are Become Pals book is here! You can buy it right now, for $16 in hardcover! It is a book that feels nice to read, and feels nice to hold in your hand. In hardcover it makes the perfect gift for your own best friend.

It's a hard book to describe, but this is the blurb we came up with:

We are Become Pals is the story of Jane and Helen, and of their friendship. As with all friendships, it is a story filled with cops, lockpicks, astronauts, secret codes, face punching and quiet moments where you realize that you aren't alone in the world.

The hardcover has all the original chapters (which you can still read online for free right here), and all new material that follows their friendship further into their lives, as they get old and crotchety and awesome together.
