A pressing problem that only YOU can solve…

Dear SlowPainful Reader / Supporter / Stumble-Upon-er:

There is a pressing problem occurring in the world today— a problem responsible for more misery that any South Pacific tsunami / raging forest fire in the Hollywood Hills / uninvited touching by a Weinstein / homophobic African dictator / or Russian oligarch … err….

…put together.  

It’s a big problem, is the point, OK? Namely:-

A proliferation of middle-aged, snarky,
resentful poor dudes.  

Listless and wan from existing on variations of Kraft Dinner for much of the year, these disgruntled wearers of grandad pants seem oblivious to the, like, total downerrrrr caused by their ADHD, complaining, and constant, excessive borrowing from family and friends.

But there’s good news!

The solution is in your credit-card or Paypal account-wielding hands, my friends!

 You see, if you can find it in your heart to
pre-purchase my forthcoming e-book for a mere $10 CAD …..


…{My e-book that’s also going to be a
wildly successful self-published trade paperback, cover pictured above, 
based on the hilarious, witty, uncalled-for, juvenile yet somehow still sophisticated blog called 

“A Slow, Painful Death Would Be Too Good For You (and other observations)” 

—that’s the site you’re on right now—by the persistently unknown yet soon to be worldwide New York Times best-selling phenomenon known as David Roddis.}…

…. Then that demographic of middle-aged, snarky, resentful poor dudes

will be decreasing by one member: 



DON’T you REALLY want that
MORE than two
Venti Caramel Lattes with
Lactose-Free Whipped Topping?

It’s a rhetorical question.

Friends, I invite you to pre-purchase* my e-book for a mere $10 CAD.
«awkward but sincere smile»

  • A 30% discount code for shop.slowpainful.com, my online store selling fun slowpainful-themed merch such as clever, quality Tees, witty cards and posters

One thought on “A pressing problem that only YOU can solve…

  1. Smile. At least Trudeau showed appropriate disdain shaking Trump’s hand and did not fawn all over him like a the leader of some “shit-hole country” leaving you to cringe so badly you just want to chew off your own face and vomit your ethics your god-given sense of moral righteousness. I will gladly pay US $0.25 to distract you from that slo-mo train wreck for even half a second…and more in May if it comes to that…
