NASTY CLASSICS, Adaptations of Literary Classics, Finally Arrive

"I am Dorothy," answered the girl, "and these are my friends, the Tin Woodman and the Cowardly Lion; and we are going to the Emerald City to get free shit from the Wizard."

HOLLYWOOD - The greatest novels in literature history get a makeover with NASTY CLASSICS, irreverent, twisted and boned-up versions of bookshelf favorites.

THE WIZARD OF OZ Remastered Dirty Edition features the original text and story, with added bits of funny commentary, extra description, and spicy dialogue. ALICE IN WONDERLAND will soon follow

The NASTY CLASSICS series is the brainchild of Matt R. Allen, the co-creator of the Vince Vaughn / Reese Witherspoon Christmas classic, “Four Christmases” and Richard Halpern, the inventor of the best selling “CD of Flatulence.”

“We’ve all had to read a handful of ‘the classics’ in school,” the writing duo said. “Although they are important pieces of literature, it’s often difficult to slog through the dense verbiage. The NASTY CLASSICS series intends to make classic novels fun to read again.”

The enhanced copy is highlighted in italics, so the reader can still understand the original as intended.

"I am Oz, the Great and Terrible, and bald," said the little man, in a trembling voice. "But don't strike me--please don't--and I'll do anything you want me to. I’ll suck your dick if it pleases you!"

Our friends looked at him in surprise and dismay.

"I thought Oz was a great Head, not a giver of head," said Dorothy.

"And I thought Oz was a lovely Lady, with green titties," said the Scarecrow.

"No, you are all fucking wrong," said the little man meekly. "I have been making believe, like Bernie Madoff."

"Making believe! We fucking killed a woman for you!" cried Dorothy.

“A lot of people ask, ‘Is it right to shit on classic literature like this?’” Allen said. “I don’t know, but I do know this - It’s my goal to have the Nasty Classics expose a whole new generation to some of the greatest novels of our time.”

“After creating a highly successful compact disc of farts, I was ready to continue my societal obligation by contributing even more high-brow humor to the world,” says Pull my Finger CD creator Richard Halpern. “We enjoyed THE WIZARD OF OZ as kids, though as the world became more “short attention span” in nature with social media, fast, funny movies, music videos, the focus shifted from reading less to being entertained by quick, mindless diversions.”

The first set of NASTY CLASSICS will include THE WIZARD OF OZ with ALICE IN WONDERLAND coming soon. NASTY CLASSICS retails for $3.99 and is available for kindle, iOS devices at A soft-cover version of NASTY CLASSICS retails for $9.99 and will too be sold on-line, at and major retailers nation-wide.
