Family Teamwork - Now available!!!

Do you ever stop to reflect on what an ungrateful, useless little puke you were as a child?  Like when your father came home after his 60 hour work week with the new lunchbox he thought you wanted, and you threw a red-faced tantrum because it was Go-Bots, not Transformers?  Or the time your mother served the stuffed turkey she spent the whole day perfecting, and you flipped it on the floor, shrieking that you wanted McNuggets and didn't love her anymore?

Yes, children are terrible.  And Family Teamwork gleefully drives that point home, with help from a brain-drilling theme wonderfully reminiscent of the music from Nintendo's Bubble Bobble.  One boy turns sour when he learns his family's newfound poverty means they can't afford the trailer-tent he had his heart set on.  Selfishly, he never thinks to ask how his family feels, or what the hell a trailer-tent might be.  In this, and other scenarios, Family Teamwork serves up a heaping helping of shame, teaching kids important lessons about the joys of responding to passive-aggressive guilt.  For the team!

Join Mike, Kevin, and Bill for Family Teamwork...as soon as they get off those dang skateboards...wait, they STILL haven't washed the car?  Of all the no-good...great, there goes my ulcer.

Loved the bit about the rotating hat. The father looks really familiar. I think I've seen that actor before but I can't remember where...

This looks awesome. "Stay in there, demon hat!"

"The family team went 3-13 that year, Dad was replaced by Norv Turner"
 :D

I also loved the Team Jacob reference.

Bill Cobbs.
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0167850/

Where do I remember him from?  Of all things, Air Bud (he's the school janitor) and Demolition Man (he's the oldest cop on the force). But it looks like he's been in a ton of stuff, according to his IMDB page. I know I've seen him around; he's one of those "That Guy" actors. You know the face, but not the name.
Buy my book! "The Angel of Lies" is on sale now!

Yes! He is definitely one of those character actors you remember the face of but not the name. Cool guy. Always entertaining.
