High above the bustling streets of Dubai in the world's tallest and most luxurious skyscraper, reside the gods and goddesses of the modern world. Since they emerged 14 billion years ago from a bus blaring a tune remarkably similar to the Mister Softee jingle, they've wreaked mischievous and hilarious havoc on mankind. Unable to control their jealousies, the gods have splintered into several factions led by the immortal enemies Shanice, XOXO, La Felina and Mogul Magoo; and Ike, an unemployed butcher from New Jersey, is their current obsession.

Ritualistically recited throughout the world by a cast of drug-addled bards, The Sugar Frosted Nutsack is Ike's epic story. A raucous tale of the unexpected fallout and laugh-out-loud misadventures of gods and men, it's a wildly fun, wickedly fast gambol through the unmapped corridors of the imagination.
