About the book
A volume of humorous verse, from epic poems on American and global history to the role of bunnies and kitties in high affairs.
"Joining acute analysis of world affairs with rhyme (and often song), Sabrina Ramet's Chees Pirates is simultaneously uproarious, surprising, and insightful. From epic poems on American and global history of musings on the role of bunnies and kitties in high affairs, Cheese Pirates both amuses and forces you to ponder deeply the role of government and personality. A fine sequel to Ramet's earlier compendium, Pets of Great Dictators, Cheese Pirates teasers as it stimulates reflection on the absurdities and the verities of politics, culture, and everyday life. Cheese Pirates is a singular read, and it will be a unique addition to any library-readers will turn to it again and again for inspiration."

"This book embarrassed me. It caused me to laugh loudly and uncontrollably while using Norwegian public transportation."

"This is an absolutely hilarious collection of rhymes, many of them set to well-known melodies. There are joyful verses celebrating life here, as well as bitingly satirical rhymes which provoke laughter at some of the abusrdities of political life. I laughed so hard reading these verses that it hurt."
- Danica Fink-Hafner, The University of Ljubljana
