"The Shocker - Two in the Pink, One in the Stink" is a book by Chad Brody about the famous shocker hand gesture, and includes 365 rhyming shocker name variations.

Known also by its trademark rhyme, “Two in the pink, one in the stink,” The Shocker is one of pop culture’s most enduring urban legends and its over-the-top innuendo has cemented it as a classic dirty joke. Unsurprisingly, most people are disturbed and offended when they find out what the innocent hand gesture really means.

Often dismissed as crude and immature, the shocker is thusly overlooked for its cultural implications. For instance, the shocker is one of the last urban legends to be born out of word-of-mouth sharing. Introduced today, it would likely become only a disposable internet meme. Even more intriguing is how the shocker has remained a mystery to the uninitiated for so long: A middle finger won’t fly in a family photo, but the shocker can slip by unpunished.

"The time had come for a deeper plunge into the shocker mystique," recalls Shocker Book author, Chad Brody, "The time had come for The Shocker Book."

Like the shocker itself, Chad's book, "The Shocker: Two in the Pink, One in the Stink" comes in two parts. Part I is an encyclopedic theory and background of the shocker, which serves as the first, only, and most authoritative work ever produced on the subject. Part II is a collection of 365 hilarious rhyming variations on the shocker name; enough for every day of the year.

A perfect gift, stocking stuffer, or bathroom reader, "The Shocker" book promises to provide hours of laughter this holiday season. Buy The Shocker on Amazon.com.
