Review: Baby Jesus Butt Plug by Carlton Mellick III

(Review for Bizarro Brigade.)

Y’know, I’m not going to summarize the plot of BABY JESUS BUTT PLUG, because you’re either going to be on board for a fairy tale about cloned Jesuses used as marital aids (and the zombie offspring they produce) or you’re not. If you are, you’ll enjoy this warped little fable about corporate dehumanization and familial yearnings, and the way Mellick simply yet colorfully spins his tale. Yes, BABY JESUS BUTT PLUG is fundamentally a short story with large typeface and illustrations to just barely justify a book-length page count, but it’s also highly entertaining and holds up to repeat readings. And in the canon of Bizarro lit (has it really been around long enough to have one?), it’s an important part of the genre’s infancy.
