Persiflage Press began as the publishing wing of the website www.persiflage.ca.
Persiflage, the website, was begun in 2005 after the demise of the old paper zine Persiflage which was begun in 2001.
Here is a sampling of the kind of foolishness you might find on that site:
Wanted: any good condition copies of the children’s book Toby’s Tiny Red Ding-Dong, the touching story of a very excitable kitty. Will pay top dollar. Box 9.
For Sale: one moustache cup. Won for the best moustache in Grade Nine at Ness Junior High in 1975. Engraved with my name but you can probably scratch it out. $14OBO. Box 23.
Tired of working for “The Man”? Why not concentrate your valuable time and energy on smashing the state? Have fun while meeting exciting people AND working to overthrow a corrupt society based on greed! We’re the Anarchist Party of Canada, come join us! We meet every second Wednesday at Earl’s on Main for drinks, nachos and spirited discussion. Check it out! You know you wanna!
Earn money at home by carrying out contract hits for the mob. Merely by enticing criminal informants into your home or apartment and then “whacking” them you can make over $100,000 per annum (that’s per year). Contact me for details. Box 0.
For sale: one Spanish caravel. Mint condition. Hardly any miles on her. Previously used only to “discover” a “New” World. Minor electrical problems. $398,567 OBO. Box 1492.
Wilma Badeebadeedee (nee Manumunmun) would like to announce that she will begin next week accepting bids from contractors for the job of adding a small kitchenette onto her last name.
