Of course, I had to look it up. :lol:

Seems to be the sort of book you either love or hate.

I did chuckle at the one review.


no jewish cookbook

I ordered this book thinking that is was a jewish cookbook. But I am verry sorry that it is story and no a jewish cookbook. That is the reason I returned the book.

:lol: I suspect this comment is a phoney.

Despite being called "The Jewish-Japanese Sex and Cook Book and How to Raise Wolves" this book features no useful advice on any of these subjects. I have no particular interest in furthering my education on wolf rearing as I mastered this at a young age when visiting my uncle in Jamaica.

As a Japanese Jew who likes sex and cooking I thought this book would be insightful and similar to the one I am currently writing called "Cooking and sex for Japanese Jews" but alas, it is no such thing.

Any Japanese Jews who like sex and cooking would be much better off waiting for the launch of my book which does not have a misleading title. If you can not wait for the launch of my book I can highly recommend "The art of Japanese cooking whilst having Jewish sex".

I thought at first this was Jack Douglas the 'Carry On' actor but he was in fact a v. famous comedy writer in the 50s and 60s - Wiki entry :lol:

Love some of his other titles as well :mrgreen:

I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.

Well as it was a shotgun and both barrels had been fired, it may have been easier for the teacher. I'm not suggesting that he wasn't brave to take the gun, but they really need to find the causes that push these kids so far to the edge that they do something desperate like this.

The fact that they've been given access to guns would be a starting point :(
