Because we are generous and optimistic,

we have decided to share our precious intellectual property with you, our intellectual friends, knowing you will repay our kindness with frequent cash purchases or endless devotion. When you are done reading and find yourself paralyzed by aesthetic bliss and gratitude, just buy some stuff (http://shop NULL.robbiandmatthew NULL.com/)to ease the pleasant ache.


The Baby is Disappointing

Our best-selling book and baby shower favorite, this satirical romp takes swipes at the outrageous expectations of the expecting. Features an innocent kewpie doll. Buy it HERE (http://idiotsbookshop NULL.myshopify NULL.com/products/the-baby-is-disappointing).


Homer Was an Epic Poet

This unauthorized biography of history’s greatest poet attempts to unmask the man behind the epithet—including irresponsible conjecture about Homer’s teenage years. Buy it HERE (http://idiotsbookshop NULL.myshopify NULL.com/products/homer-was-an-epic-poet).


Nasty Chipmunk

A picture book not for kids, in which grandmothers are offended, lions are deposed, and forest fires are deliberately started. Features a duel that ends badly for a bunny. Buy it HERE (http://idiotsbookshop NULL.myshopify NULL.com/products/nasty-chipmunk).


Stranded in Strange Waters

This collection of 25 illustrated episodes makes no attempt at structure, narrative, or coherence. Those who can retool their expectations might just enjoy themselves. Buy it HERE (http://idiotsbookshop NULL.myshopify NULL.com/products/stranded-in-strange-waters).

Avoid Disappointment and Future Regret

The definitive book on how to find happiness makes liberal use of information graphics and smiley faces while featuring Emily Dickinson and two werewolves. Buy it HERE (http://idiotsbookshop NULL.myshopify NULL.com/products/avoid-disappointment-and-future-regret).


Koochie is Free

The inspiring tale of Koochie, wanderer from responsibility, a rambling sort of off-the-cuff cowboy who wants nothing and has it. Buy it HERE (http://idiotsbookshop NULL.myshopify NULL.com/products/koochie-is-free).


The World in Love

Somewhat satirical and entirely red, this small book explores the vagaries of love, from the bone-rattling timpani of beginnings to the slow, sad trombone solo of retreat. Buy it HERE (http://idiotsbookshop NULL.myshopify NULL.com/products/the-world-in-love).


The Contented

A sexless figure lives and toils alone on a desolate rock, attending to daily tasks and oiling the iron maiden. This book contains just six words and features bare buttocks. Buy it HERE (http://idiotsbookshop NULL.myshopify NULL.com/products/the-contented).
