BACK THE F*CK UP!
DANNY VITTORE
Back the F*ck Up! is a celebration of 30 creatures great
and small that are revered for their coolness, whether for
their “don’t give a crap” attitude or being a boozehound.
Animals include the vicious cassowary which is capable
of delivering a fatal falcon kick to people; the mongoose
which fights snakes just because it wants to; the polar
bear, the only animal in the world that actively hunts
humans; and the caterpillar, which is a lot more insane
than people may think.
Referred to as the Justin Bieber of blogging by Forbes,
Danny Vittore is a columnist for Cracked.com. Having
written six features for the humour site, Vittore’s Six
Animals That Just Don’t Give a F*ck was an Internet
sensation. His hilarious piece went viral, with 1.5 million
views three weeks after it was posted. It now has racked
up nearly 2.5 million views and 70,000 Facebook shares.
Soon to be a freshman at NYU, he also claims to have
wrestled a honey badger and won.

projects. He looks at subject simplification and shows how to focus on shapes rather than
objects and, by painting what you see and not what you know, demonstrates how to
capture the essence of the scene with freshness and clarity.

NASTIEST SUDOKU BOOK EVER
FRANK LONGO
Warning! Only the most skilled sudoku experts should try these mind-blowing puzzles. Make
no mistake about it – some of the hardest sudoku ever created are presented in this book.
Mere sudoku enthusiasts are strongly advised against trying to fill in even one of the grids, as
frustration and pencil-biting is sure to occur. And please, for pity’s sake, neophytes shouldn’t
even bother to open the cover. These brain-crushing puzzles should be attempted by only the
best and the brightest sudoku solvers. If you think you’re up to the challenge, proceed at your
own risk.
Frank Longo is a freelance puzzle creator. He has had more than 3,000 puzzles published
since 1993 and written many books. He is known for being able to produce sudoku that are
diabolically difficult, yet fair, requiring the solver to use advanced techniques not found in
typical newspaper and magazine puzzles.
