Details

Each image features a one-word speech bubble proving that almost every milestone in history had its downside and can therefore be summed up in one succinct, withering, mood-deflating expletive. This alternative history will appeal to pessimists of every stripe, young and old. Contrarians and curmudgeons who already know that every great event was a let down to someone somewhere will instantly embrace the incredible wisdom of this priceless series of cartoons. Every historical turning point is satirically savaged—the emergence of life, the death of the dinosaurs, the invention of the wheel, the Trojan War, the Crucifixion, the discovery of America, the Revolutionary War, the Industrial Revolution, the Civil War, Communism, consumerism, the Cold War, the War on Terror—all the way to the end of the world.
