In the past few days, Patrick Wensink’s Broken Piano for President has exploded into Amazon’s Top 10 bestsellers, where it currently sits at #7. The book has received coverage from Time Magazine, The New York Times, The Atlantic, The Telegraph, Boing Boing, Yahoo News, Business Week, Business Insider, The Huffington Post, and countless other publications. This morning, Wensink appeared on Yahoo’s Trending Now talk show. Soon, he might be in a major documentary on trademark infringements and will be speaking to law students about copyright laws. In short, the book has exploded in an unprecedented manner. It’s one of the most popular bizarro political satires in recent times — and arrived just in time for the upcoming presidential election.
Now we need your help. We at Lazy Fascist Press are not ones to rest on our laurels. We feel our work here is not yet done. We want to get Patrick Wensink — smart, funny, fantastic-smelling Patrick Wensink — on The Colbert Report. If we all work together, we can make this happen.
Here’s what you can do to get Patrick Wensink on The Colbert Report:
Send tweets about Patrick Wensink to both @ColbertReport and @StephenAtHome. Send them links to the Trending Now video, to the New York Times article, and to the Business Week interview. Or, if you prefer, just let Stephen Colbert knows how great Patrick Wensink smells.
Thank you for being part of the Lazy Fascist army.
