Denis Leary is coming out with a new book called SUCK ON THIS YEAR: LYFAO @ 140 Characters or Less. Play the trailer below to see him talking about his new book. It's very funny! Please read the contest rules at the end of this post for a chance to win a copy of this book.
Suck On This Year will be published by Penguin on December 2nd. The description of the book reads:
Leary’s first reaction to the Twitter universe was to run the other direction. But then he realized that all of the jokes he was making casually to friends were going to waste unless he had a stand-up comedy tour coming up. The jokes just came and then disappeared. So he decided to give Twitter a try, and once he started, he couldn’t stop. Thus—this book. Or mini-book. Or celebrity coaster.
Here’s a sampling for your reading pleasure:
● This just in: Vatican acquires Neverland Ranch.
● Arizona residents: “We’re sick of being called racists.” That’s the thing about Arizona: it’s a dry hate.
● Lindsay Lohan to play Linda Lovelace in pornstar biopic. Exactly whose reputation is at stake here?
● Lettuce recalled in 23 states: Experts fear it could affect up to 5 Americans.
● New Jersey worried about oil residue on beaches. Not from Gulf spill. From cast of Jersey Shore.
A portion of the proceeds from this book will go towards Leary’s charity—The Leary Firefighters Foundation—so not only are readers improving their own lives by reading this and laughing out loud, they’re also helping a firefighter somewhere in America gain some invaluable training. Plus, SUCK ON THIS YEAR will make the perfect gift book this holiday season, and let’s be honest, it’s a lot more fun than those winter socks or hand-knit sweater or most of your relatives.
