Что произойдёт, если программист-социофоб из Санкт-Петербурга и застрявший в 90-х эксцентричный пранкер объединятся, чтобы пойти войной против зловещей корпорации, поработившей мир? Ничего хорошего. Героям этой книги предстоит создать абсурдное анархическое движение, намутить бизнес, превратить Лахта-центр в пенис, сбежать от ОМОНа, облить знаменитостей тухлым смузи, раскрыть заговор Рептилоидов, разобраться с Лениным и многое другое. Автор книги не понаслышке знает про грешки программистов и помешанных на просветлении зожников. А главный герой истории в происходящем вокруг него хулиганском трэше попытается найти смысл жизни. И ведь найдёт.
