Hi Kim- I wanted to give you a heads up about the uproarious new book, TEXTASTROPHE: A Collection of Hilariously Catastrophic Text Pranks (St. Martin’s Griffin; February 17) – born out of real life pranks the book is an expansion of the popular Textastrophe Tumblr with tons of never before seen material.
For Matt Andrews, it all started during an exceptionally boring shift at the smart phone kiosk in the mall. With ample time to procrastinate, he decided to check out Craigslist where he saw an ad requesting that the reader text a personal cell phone number for more information. This led to a series of hilarious exchanges and the beginning of his prank text empire. Among the many LOL moments in TEXTASTROPHE, he shows us what happens when you:
Offer to barter two sub-sandwiches for a used motorcycle
Text a mysterious man off Craigslist to build a man cave in your basement
Text the manager of a chain restaurant about your unsatisfactory dining experience
