DUDES MAGAZINE #16: $4, 8 ½” x 11”, printed with glossy cover, 84 pgs.

 “Worldwide Leader of Bathroom Publications,” indeed. This zine is stuffed with delightful, juvenile tidbits with titles like “Three Pee Stories,” “Son-of-Obitchuary,” “Dudely Dude Profile” and “‘80s Dudes with Tudes.” If any of that sounds at all funny to you, I suggest you read this because it’s really well done. It seems like it was written by a group of pop punk fratboys who share slang and like getting wasted and watching baseball together. It’s remarkable that this was released, because guys like this rarely get their shit together to write a magazine. Such ideas are usually relegated to drunk talk. Yes, this is ball-scratchin’, fart-lightin’ fun, so enjoy, because complaining about the bro-dawg level of these guys would be like fussing about AC/DC being too loud. –CT Terry (Dudes Magazine World Headquarters, 3872-A Connecticut St., St. Louis, MO 63116)
