Commander Pants is the pen name of an author, game inventor, and all around mysterious guy. If you want to know his real name, click the contact link on his website and ask. Maybe he’ll tell.


“It's 1987, and ‘God’ has returned to Earth to goof on humanity once more. Equipped with a new message and a bell that makes people happy, he opens up a new age store, ready to have some fun. Fortunately, things don't turn out quite like He'd planned.”


If you can’t find the humor in killing or at least maiming a sacred cow or two (literally, given all the Big Macs consumed), then this isn’t the book for you. But if a little light-hearted blasphemy sounds fun, if poking fun at religion, the mental health profession, and just about everything to do with your fellow earthlings sounds like a good time, have I got the book for you.

Seriously (or at least as serious as I can be about this book), how people react to humor can vary and it is often dependent on the subjects they are capable of laughing at and those they always take seriously. I found this very funny. If none of the items above is one of your sacred cows, you should find it funny too.


Adult language and  situations.
