A book for the artisanally raised child in all of us

Pat the foodie

We can't seem to get enough of sordid twists on childhood classics. Hot on the heels of "Go the F--- to Sleep" comes "Pat the Foodie," based on the popular bunny-based pop-up book.

"Paul likes to knead his handcrafted artisan pizza dough," it says. "Now YOU can knead the dough."

"Judy reads lots of food tweets. Now YOU can read lots of tweets too." And the image of the iPhone on the facing page pulls down to reveal such 140-character bons mots as: "Farmer Bill's fresh prunes. they really move me." And "Chillin at happy hour w/sassy spikers."

Next thing you know, it'll be helping you post on Yelp.

The book is available at the Imagineering Store website for $17, and yes, of course it has its own Facebook page. And SO can you!
