So Bizarro author (with Lazy Fascist Press) Patrick Wensink wrote a book called Broken Piano for President.

According to Amazon, it came out in February.

Just recently Jack Daniels contacted Wensink and asked him to change the book cover because of it's resemblance to their bottles.

But what does this really mean? Well, it put a bizarro book into the spotlight. This book is #33 overall in books in amazon sales rank. This is the highest a bizarro book has ever gotten. Small and Indy presses never see this kind of attention.

It's pretty awesome news really.
