Stay at Home Scarface by Kenny Keil

Everyone thought Tony Montana died when his mansion was raided, but it takes more than being shot in the back and falling off a balcony to stop ol' Scarface. So what really happened to Tony? He retired from the drug game and became a stay-at-home dad. Say hello to Tony's new little friend: His newborn son! In this adult activity storybook, Tony now has mountains of baby powder on his desk, and when he takes someone for a ride, it's the Dumbo ride at Disneyland. The only thing that gives Tony orders is babies. Babies, you got that?

CURATOR'S NOTE

"When I was growing up, I read a lot of MAD Magazine, and I bet you did, too. There are many great comedy minds associated with the long running parody mag, such as Sergio Argones, Don Adams, and Mort Drucker. Look through a current issue and Kenny's gut-busting work is practically on every page. This might be Kenny's era of MAD, but instead of giving him a handful of pages, we gave him his own book. Your move, Mr. E. Newman." – Geoffrey Golden

BOOK PREVIEW

Excerpt

Tony Needs Help

Parenting ain't no duckwalk, let me tell ju.

My back hurts. I haven't slept in months. Sometimes I'll leave the house with a dirty burp cloth on my shoulder and I won't even realize it. The other day I accidentally baby-talked a bank teller. Called him "my little tinker-doodle."

My whole fucking life is falling apart, mang.

I gotta make a move and I gotta make one quick. I gotta put this baby in daycare.

Just one problem: All these daycares got waiting lists a mile long, mang. Since when ju gotta be on a list to get into a fucking daycare? What is this, the Babylon Club?!
