This is an adolescent, immature "party" book. It's like a bunch of frat kids gathered and put it together. The more outrageous absurd they created is a 4th of July cup cake with a "peace" symbol as decoration. How do these idiots think independence was achieved? That's what happens when we no longer teach kids the US Constitution! Zero stars for bad taste.
