Humorist Scott Roeben, creator of humor site Dribbleglass.com, turns everyday billboards into laughter in a new book, "Dribbleglass.com's Twisted Billboards," published by Running Press.

Pulitzer Prize-winning author Dave Barry said of the book and accompanying magnets, "These billboards are sick, perverted, gross and tasteless. But in a good way."

Roeben’s irreverent billboard images, originally created for Dribbleglass.com, have become part of the culture of the Internet, endlessly forwarded via e-mail, posted in innumerable blogs, and appearing on scores of humor sites. Now some of the best of these images have been made into magnets, perfect for refrigerators and office cubicles.

The topics on the billboard images are as diverse as our culture. The billboards take playful jabs at love ("That thing you say you're in to get sex"), sushi ("Still your best bet for intestinal worms"), and Las Vegas ("It's only a gambling problem if you're losing").

"Dribbleglass.com's Twisted Billboards" is published by Running Press, the company that produces quirky "miniature editions" such as "The Mini Zen Gardening Kit," "Therapist in a Box," and "Mini Office Voodoo Kit."

The "Twisted Billboards" mini-kit contains a palm-sized book about Dribbleglass.com, the origin of the Dribbleglass.com's infamous parody billboards and, naturally, the meaning of Life. The kit also includes 10 magnets, each showing a different funny billboard.

"Dribbleglass.com's Twisted Billboards" is currently available online at Amazon.com, Barnesandnoble.com, Buy.com, and other sites, and will be in major bookstore chains in November, 2005.
