(double) huh

A book recommendation for yous, just in time for a new week of reading in those shiny, happy cubicles.

As the io9 writer(s?) puts it, "[the Feminists] is the story of cubicle drone Keith Montalvo, who has been caught consensually slipping the pink torpedo to a female co-worker. Unfortunately, it's 1992 and the Big-Sisterish "Committee" has outlawed all unauthorized heterosex, and his crime is punishable by death. Keith flees underground, literally and figuratively, where he meets Angela, a boot-wearing resistance fighter hottie. Luckily for Keith, while women on the outside reject all males, Angela and other female members of the Subterraneans resistance movement are "attached to the men with arm-clinging closeness." Soon he and Angela are working (arm-in-arm, of course) to assassinate the President, and reclaim gender supremacy for men."

Why, Angela, why? Was the shagging worth it? I wonder if the book answers that (off to Amazon to check)

Thanks to io9 for the link.

Obviously you are insane.

Doesn't it make you want to give up your day job and write its sequel? Hope it sells gazillions and then become rich? Or, really, what did Kevin have that was so worth giving up a Big Sister society?

You realize that we now have "pink torpedo" on this site. With "enormous erection."
