In a Nutshell: Sulking reporter investigates a little too deep in a SIDS fluff piece and finds out the dangerous cause. He becomes homicidal and enlists the help of a real estate broker who specializes in serial buyings and sellings of haunted houses, her assistant - a nudist wiccan, and her assistant's boyfriend - an irate vegan con-man. Very dark and dank hilarity ensues.

Recommended to: nihilistic fuckheads, those who love their comedy dark and thick, and people who like his other work.

Taboo Subjects Gleefully Exploited: dead babies and necrophilia.
