"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, WIREDmagazine) "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 Guardianto Jezebelto 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 Playgroundculls 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).

Reviews

Publishers Weekly Galley Talk: " "David Thorne's "The Internet is a Playground" (Tarcher) is the funniest book I've read in years. I had to stop reading it repeatedly because I was laughing so hard. I called people I know and read parts out loud over the phone. Thorne, who is equal parts social cartographer, psychologist, and sociopath, stays true to his name by poking fun and puncturing the egos of strangers and friends alike. With just a simple push, even the simplest of situations explodes into the wildest and most outrageously funny exchanges. Interspersed throughout are Thorne's razor sharp musings on random bits; sucker punches both juvenile and brilliant. If you can make it through the story of "Missy, The Missing Cat" without cheering out loud at the author's sheer bravado, you miss the point of this wildly entertaining book completely. Wicked, breath-taking, irreverent, and absolutely contagious, "The Internet is a Playground" is an effortless handsell: just start reading out
