Once there was a god named Sh'all Nah. He sat on his throne and he was happy. Then he said, "I would like to view humerously written biographies of my favorite eccentric celebrities." Thus Interesting Motherfuckers was created, and Sh'all Nah was happy.

Then Sh'all Nah said, "With Interesting Motherfuckers I can read about my favorite eccentric celebrities. But what if I wish to read about the various entertainment products created by these celebrities?" Sh'all Nah's Grand Wizard, Marvin, thought long and hard. Then he created Motherfucking Masterpieces which you see before you. Read these articles. Learn from their wisdom. Perhaps one day you will become as powerful as Sh'all Nah.
