My Bitchin’ Valentine & The Vikings are here!



My Bitchin’ Valentine
Valentine’s Day rivals Halloween for candy consumption. So for this Valoween, give the bitch her chocolate. Easy, now: Those are the words of Ed Polish and Darren Wotz, not I. Give the Bitch Her Chocolate ($12.95) is a spiral-bound (with slipcase) funhouse of kitschy, vintage illustrations accompanied by delicious quotes like, “If it fits in a toaster, I can cook it,” and “Step away from the fridge, lardass.”

Loaded with circa 1955 Ozzie and Harriet domestic bliss artwork, Give the Bitch Her Chocolate is a sassy alternative to Godiva and Victoria’s Secret. Keep this quote in mind for V-Day: “If we are what we eat, I’m fast, cheap and easy.”

The Vikings are here!
Wanna be the next Iron Chef? The next Rachael Ray? The next Mario Batali? Kimball Distributing can help.
