    Description`There is usually a fine line between genius and insanity, but in this case it has become very blurred. Some of the funniest and most clever writing I have read in years.` (Terrance Fielding, `WIRED` magazine) `I laughed so hard and uncontrollably I could hardly breathe. Reading this on public transport is not a good idea.` (Penthouse magazine) `Brilliantly funny.` (Jezebel.com) From the notorious Internet troublemaker who brought the world the explosively popular `Next Time I'll Spend the Money on Drugs Instead,` in which he attempted to pay his chiropractor with a picture he drew of a spider; `Please Design a Logo for Me. With Pie Charts. For Free,` which has been described as one of the most passed-on viral e-mails of all time; and, most recently, the staggeringly popular `Missing Missy,` which has appeared everywhere from `The Guardian` to `Jezebel` to Andrew Sullivan's `The Daily Dish,` comes this profoundly funny collection of irreverent Internet mischief and comedy. Featuring all of Thorne's viral success, including `Missing Missy,` `The Internet Is a Playground` culls together every article and e- mail from Thorne's wildly popular website 27bslash6.com, as well as enough new material, available only in these pages, to keep you laughing-and, indeed, crying-until Thorne's next stroke-of-genius prank. Or hilarious hoax. Or well-publicized almost-stint in jail (really).

  • Not an online genius!2

    Twisted_Joker I bought this book after reading some of David Thorne�´s material on the internet. It begins with the famous spider email and it�´s hilarious. however, it�´s all downhill after that. The rest of the book just isn�´t funny. Really. There are 1 or 2 other funny email conversations (the missing cat and the gym), but essentially, the book is full of smart-arse emails where he�´s just trying too hard to replicate the humour in the famous spider email. There�´s a lot of padding, where David introduces people in his life and tries make fun of them, but it doesn�´t read well, it�´s awkard sarcasm and he actually comes across as being more arrogant than humorous. I wouldn�´t recommend this at all! by Twisted_Joker

    Brilliantly funny!5

    Maggie I was laughing out loud every page. On several occasions I had to put this book down and walk away gasping for air. Seriously funny writer. Quite cruel in places, touching in other places, hilarious throughout. by Maggie
