Groovy Self Defense

Self-Protection Guidebook for Girls and Women

Submitter: Okay, so this is a pretty serious subject. But it is SO hard to take it seriously, when these pictures are so hilarious!

Lisa’s Parents Fight

Lisa's Parents Fight coverLisa’s Parents Fight

1989

Looking for a cute bedtime story for the kids? Here you go! You might recognize the author: one of our favorites and creator of this site’s best post to date: Satan for Kids (and the companion follow up post, Satan for Kids part 2). In this story, Lisa is in a real situation with her siblings. Lisa’s step dad (it is always a STEP!) seems to have a problem with his temper. He complains about the cost of kids (I confess I have complained A LOT about that too.) He watches TV (whoops, I do that too).  By the end of the book, Step Dad decides he does have a problem (it is a miracle!) and the kids eat some McDonald’s carry out. This book is awful on so many levels, I don’t know where to begin.
