Hawthorne: Hacked, Shakespeare: Sacked & Thurber: Thwacked by Jay Dubya.
Hawthorne Hacked, Shakespeare Sacked & Thurber Thwacked is a cleverly-organized book that effectively satirizes some of the main works of Nathaniel Hawthorne, of William Shakespeare and of American humorist James Thurber, and the creative compilation is author Jay Dubya’s 52nd published hardcover/paperback publication.
In the Nathaniel Hawthorne section, Jay Dubya aggressively attacks the early 19th Century writer’s famous short stories “The Great Stone Face,” “The Minister’s Black Veil,” “Rappaccini’s Daughter,” “Feathertop,” “The Three Golden Apples” and finally, “Dr. Heidegger’s Experiment.” In the William Shakespeare segment, the renowned English bard’s classic plays “The Tempest,” “Macbeth,” “Hamlet” and “The Merchant of Venice” are rather hilariously clobbered and quite thoroughly corrupted. And finally, in the concluding James Thurber portion, the U.S. author’s notorious short stories “The Catbird Seat,” “A Couple of Hamburgers,” “The Night the Bed Fell,” “Tales with a Twist,” “The Dog That Bit People” and “The Secret Life of Walter Witty” are imaginatively rewritten and given entirely new adult-style, bawdy spins.

Satire (Adult Humor)
The Wholly Book of Doo-Doo-Rot-on-Me by Jay Dubya.
The Wholly Book of Doo-Doo-Rot-on-Me (Deuteronomy), featuring adult language and content, is a satire/parody of the fifth book of the Old Testament.
Deuteronomy describes the establishment of the laws of ancient Israel, the many conflicts with already existing civilizations Moses and the Israelites had encountered on their flight from Egypt in quest of the “Promised Land”, and the eventual transfer of power and authority from Moses to Joshua prior to the aged prophet’s death. The Wholly Book of Doo-Doo-Rot-on-Me completes the Biblical trilogy that includes The Wholly Book of Genesis and The Wholly Book of Exodus.
A young Arab terrorist named Mohammed Kareem Jihad had made a great discovery of ancient papyrus writings inside a secluded limestone cave. The violent lad brought the scrolls into Jericho where he traded the documents to Professor Phil Collins (an expert on Genesis) and Dr. Allen Qaeda (an authority on Exodus) for an old AK-47, two slightly used hand grenades and some cheap American cigarettes.
For over a full decade after 2002, I had believed that only The Wholly Book of Genesis and The Wholly Book of Exodus had existed in the treasured computer e-mail file I had received from Uncle Phil, since a long blank void had appeared thereafter. But last month out of sheer boredom I ran the file to its end and remarkably discovered the fifth book of the Old Testament Pentateuch, The Wholly Book of Doo-Doo-Rot-on-Me. Apparently, book three titled The Wholly Book of Numbers along with book #four The Wholly Book of Leviticus had somehow been accidentally erased in the e-mailed computer file.
Now that the essential background of The Wholly Book of Genesis, The Wholly Book of Exodus (along with the tampered-with computer file containing The Wholly Book of Doo-Doo-Rot-on-Me) is fully known, only the astute readers can be the best judges of the merits of Mohammed Kareem Jihad’s remarkable discovery and of now-deceased Uncle Phil Collins’ exceptional Biblical claims.

Satire (Adult Humor)
Fractured Frazzled Folk Fables and Fairy Farces by Jay Dubya.
Fractured Frazzled Folk Fables and Fairy Farces is adult literature that satirizes classic children’s folk tales, fables and fairy tales into more mature presentations featuring adult language, content and humor.

Other famous fables rewritten into adult accounts are “The Fox and the Crow,” “The Goose That Laid the Golden Egg,” “The Grasshopper and the Ants,” “The Lark and Its Offspring,” “The Miller, His Son and the Jackass,” “Belling the Cat” and finally “The Dog, the Fox and the Stream.”
Folk and Fairy Tales from England, France, Germany and Russia are also imaginatively assaulted and converted into adult-oriented stories. Jay Dubya thoroughly corrupts “The Three Little Piglet Brothers,” “The Flashing Elves,” “The Golden Goose’s Goosing Curse,” “The Notorious Sleeping Beauty” and “Petite Red Riding Hood.” Other classic stories that are not saved from degeneration are “Jack’s Magnificent Beanstalk,” “Hansel and Gretel Dumkoff,” “Little Ebony Sambo,” “Rapunzel’s Draping Hair” and “Tom Thumb’s History.” Finally, the author completely corrupts into adult parody rewrites “Peter W. and the Wolf,” “The Rumpelstiltskin No-Spin Zone,” “Beauty and the Beastly Beast,” “Cinderella’s Fella” and the classic folktale “Flaky Snow White and the Seven Midgdwarfs.”
Fractured Frazzled Folk Fables and Fairy Farces is Jay Dubya’s twenty-first e-book. This book is definitely not written for or to be read by children.

Author Jay Dubya goes right to work corrupting familiar children’s stories The Three Scruffy Gruffy Billy Goats, The Gay Tailor Who Became King, Petey Rabbit, Thumbilisa Thumbilina, The Emperor’s Invisible Clothes and Goldie Lox and the Three Ursas. Several British legends are re-invented with hilarious adult renditions of St. George Slays the Dragon and Arthur Becomes King of England. Greek myths are imaginatively sabotaged with comical presentations of Daphne’s Daft Daffiness, Bellerophon’s Marathon Adventure, Baucis and Philemon, Psyche and Stupid Cupid and Atalantas’s Last Race.
Other popular children’s stories that are put into adult parodies are Pinocchio’s Personality Problem, The Wolf and the Seven Lame Lambs, The Sorcerer’s Un-Resourceful Apprentice and Peter Pansy Does Kensington Gardens. Finally, Author Jay Dubya presents very amusing renditions of the classic tales Alice Visits Wonderland and Aladdin’s Little Lamp. Fractured Frazzled Folk Fables and Fairy Farces, Part II is definitely not written for or to be read by children.

Born in Hammonton, NJ in 1942, John had attended St. Joseph School up to and including Grade 5. After his family moved from Hammonton to Levittown, Pa in 1954, John attended St. Mark School in Bristol, Pa. for Grade 6, St. Michael the Archangel School for Grades 7 and 8 and Immaculate Conception School, Levittown, Pa. for grade 9. Bishop Egan High School, Levittown Pa was John’s educational base for Grades 10 and 11, and later in 1960 he graduated from Edgewood Regional High, Tansboro, NJ. John then next attended Glassboro State College, where he was an announcer for the school’s baseball games and also read the news and sports over WGLS, GSC’s radio station.
John had been primarily an English teacher in the Hammonton Public School System for 34 years, specializing in the instruction of middle school language arts. Mr. Wiessner was quite active in the Hammonton Education Association, serving in the capacities of Vice-President, building representative and finally, teachers’ head negotiator for 7 years. During his lengthy teaching career, John had been nominated into “Who’s Who Among American Teachers” three times. He also was quite active giving professional workshops at schools around South Jersey on the subjects of creative writing and the use of movie videos to motivate students to organize their classroom theme compositions.
John Wiessner was very active in community service, being a past President of the Hammonton Lions Club, where he also functioned for many years as the club’s Tail-Twister, Vice-President and Liontamer. He had been named Hammonton Lion of the Year in 1979 and in 2009 received the prestigious Melvin Jones Fellow Award, the highest honor a Lion can receive from Lions International.
John also was a successful businessman, starting with being a Philadelphia Bulletin newspaper delivery boy for two years in the late 1950s in Levittown, Pennsylvania. After his family moved back to New Jersey in 1959, John worked at his grandparents and his parents’ farm markets, Square Deal Farm (now Ron’s Gardens in Hammonton) and Pete’s Farm Market in Elm, respectively. He later managed his wife’s parents’ farm market, White Horse Farms (Elm) for three summers.
Also, in a business capacity, for 16 summers starting in 1967 John Wiessner had co-owned Dealers Choice Amusement Arcade on the Ocean City, Maryland boardwalk and also co-owned the New Horizon Tee-Shirt Store for eight summers (1973-’81) on the Rehoboth Beach, Delaware boardwalk.

And then, for 18 summers beginning in 1986, John had been the Field Manager in charge of crew-leaders for Atlantic Blueberry Company (the world’s largest cultivated blueberry company), both the Weymouth and Mays Landing Divisions.
