A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo Reviews

  • Bradley

    For an audiobook for all of 7 minutes long, it was rather cute and metrosexual for a little children's book.

    The tongue-in-cheek reply to the original BOTUS book by the wife of the vice-president, made very popular by John Oliver, is less impressive to me than how well it was pulled off by Jim Parsons of The Big Bang Theory fame. :)

    Quite cute. :)

  • Tori Thompson

    Awww... what a sweet silly book!

    Yes, it took me less than five minutes to read it, and cost $12, but it is sweet, and silly, and has an AWESOME message, and the proceeds g9 to a great cause! Bunnies should marry whomever they want!

  • Kasa Cotugno

    I bought this not only because it is the work of John Oliver, but also because of the distribution of royalties to a worthy cause. Also to virtually spit in the eye of vpotus because of his warped values. The fact that I enjoyed it was just icing on the cake.

  • Celia

    Cute book. Teaches that you can be different and accepted.

  • Daniel Rose

    Love IS forever!

    Sure, I bought the book to give a middle finger to Mike Pence and the anti-LGBTQ zealots, but it also benefits a wonderful cause. Having said that, it's a very cute book that I would let any child read because it's about love. And, loving people (animals and bugs in the book) that are different. And yes, I feel a bit hypocritical after what I said about Pence and his I'll, but I don't claim to be perfect. Buy this book!!!

    Marlon Bundo is not a godfather, or at least he doesn’t seem to be. It is important to know this. This picture book is a response to the Pence family book about their bunny rabbit and a plea for tolerance.

    And as my students would say, “it is as funny as shit”.

    Yeah, I’m not sure how shit is funny either. I mean, okay, I suppose if you have been constipated and then you go No 2, it might as good as shit. But what sort of weird tickling shit exists that makes you laugh?

    When is a rabbit a troll?

    There’s probably a very hot cross bunny at Number One Observatory Circle (the VPOTUS’s official residence, illustrated in this book), which is seasonally appropriate for the book’s release, even though hot cross buns are apparently not as widely eaten during Lent (the 40 days before Easter) in the US as the UK.

    Hot cross buns also seem apt, given the bizarre and recurring importance of baking (or rather, refusing to do so) in the battle for LGBTQ+ rights, especially marri

    Allow me to introduce myself -

    I am Marlon Bundo Pence.

    I live with my family here

    At the vice president's residence.

    Some people call me BOTUS -

    A name any bunny would love.

    It means "Bunny of the United States" -

    A job I am very proud of!


    If that doesn't get your preschooler begging you to read it again and again, I don't know what will!

    The Gay Bunny Version

    Hot on its heels (so hot, it was released a day before the Pence one) came this picture book, in which Bundo falls in love with another bunny. But here’s the point and the problem: both rabbits are male. It’s a genuine, inclusive children’s story almost as much as it is digging at Pence. There's a proper narrative arc: loneliness, love, an obstacle, and... a happy ending. The pictures are a delicate, colourful delight, and the text is short and sweet, largely eschewing overt politics, and without attempting rhyming couplets.

    But it does skewer Pence. The character who tries to stop the wedding has a tidy mop of white hair, a collared shirt, and red tie. He is described thus:

    "The Stink Bug was In Charge. He was Important. None of the other animals could quite work out why he was In Charge or how he was Important, but he was."

    Ethics of Imitation

    This book was heavily promoted by John Oliver on HBO’s Last Week Tonight and it raced up the bestseller charts, quickly eclipsing the Pence book.

    One’s attitude to that is likely to be framed by one’s attitude to Pence, and especially his views about the evils of homosexuality. But it’s not quite that simple.

    Money from the Pence book is going to one charity that provides art therapy to children with cancer and another that tackles human trafficking.

    On the other hand, all the proceeds from this are going to an AIDS charity and the Trevor Project, a suicide prevention organization that offers support to young LGBT community members.

    (I'll leave aside the difference between proceeds and profits, and the malleability of both.)

    Personally, I find Pence’s active hatred of LGBTQ+ and other minorities hateful, and if his family produce a children’s book with a political message, even for charitable causes, I think it becomes a valid target for parody, satire, or whatever.

    Anyway, Charlotte Pence says she doesn't mind, because both books are raising money. She has bought this book, and also thinks imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, which wasn't quite the intention, but never mind. (Citation here and here.)

    Love is love (as long as it's consensual).



    Pastiches and Parodies on GR

    Jill Twiss, should be an active reviewer on GR. Or maybe she is a pseudonym of Manny Rayner’s. Or maybe Manny wrote this! Or maybe it's just a Dickensian pseudonym of John Oliver's. (Disappointingly, it seems she's a real individual in her own right, who writes for The Daily Show.)

    This book is a more than a parody, but it is like many of Manny’s most creative “reviews” (see my reviews of his collections, What Pooh Might Have Said to Dante..., HERE, and If Research Were Romance..., HERE). ...more

    This book is no joke

    A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo is 100% child-appropriate, and teaches that you should never be ashamed of who you are or about who you love. The art is lovely. As a bonus, all of Last Week Tonight's profits benefits The Trevor Project. Wonderful.
