Book #37 of 2011: How to Beat Up Anybody; an Instructional and Inspirational Karate Book by the World Champion Judah Friedlander.
If you would like to read a book that is essentially the result of Judah Friedlander doing a photo shoot and then writing some words (mostly the words "world champion") to match whatever photos ended up coming out of it, then this is for you. Also, if you like to look at boobs. Or people (Judah Friedlander) levitating.
To some degree the half-assedness makes it more funny, but eventually I got tired of it.
Until the For Women Only chapter, which was pretty hilarious, because, yes, I find Judah Friedlander in several woman's outfits pretty hilarious.
Sometimes with comedy, I find myself thinking about how fun it would've been to help make it rather than how funny it is to watch/hear/see/whatever. This is one of those times--I bet it was super fun to take these photos of Judah doing crazy shit, sometimes in drag. Probably much more fun than it is to read the results of that.
Anyway, the point is that it was kinda funny, but also kinda meh. And if you wanna do any comedy photo shoots or whatever, you should invite me.
