What Would Satan Do?: Cartoons about Right, Wrong and Very, Very Wrong Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Whether you are an eternal equivocator or simply a person whose moral compass blows with the ethical wind, cartoonist Pat Byrnes delivers a delightfully depraved new cartoon book. A devilish play on the over-asked (if you ask us) "What Would Jesus Do?" question, this hilarious and edgy book delivers a host of witty cartoons on ethics in today's society. <BR>The author himself would be the first to say we all like to think we know right from wrong, but in the heat of real-world moral decisions, things often arise to cloud our minds. From a doctor peeking into a patient's room to remark, "85 dollars just to poke my head through the door! Doesn't that make you sick?" to a minister telling his congregation, "I won't be giving a sermon today because you're all going to hell anyway," Byrnes's offbeat humor will delight anyone who has ever considered leaving a few (or all) of their morals behind. Byrnes offers guidance, too, to those still struggling with good and evil: "If you know what would absolutely be wrong, then you know that you absolutely should search in the other direction."

His cartoons have been published in The New Yorker, Reader's Digest, America Magazine, USA Weekend, Ms., Catholic Digest, Barron's, The Wall Street Journal, Better Homes & Gardens, and the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists. His work has been featured in several anthologies, including The New Yorker Book of Kids Cartoons, The New Yorker Book of Golf Cartoons, and The New Yorker 75th Anniversary Cartoon Collection.
