'I Am Better Than Your Kids': Hilarious photos! -- EXCLUSIVE

Have you ever been forced to pretend that a kid’s bad art is a masterpiece? Super-manly blogger and “art” critic Maddox, lord of The Best Page in the Universe, has put together a compendium of children’s scribbles and his hilariously harsh critiques. The grades he gives these budding artists range from the shameful F– to the highest honor, F+ (although he hands A+’s to his own work, naturally). Maddox’s snarky takedowns of crayon drawings have been popular online for many years, but it’s even more hilarious to see them bound in a glossy, visually stimulating, occasionally eye-vomit-inducing coffee table book. I Am Better Than Your Kids is available in stores Nov. 1, but Maddox has shared a few pages and his comments for us to enjoy early. (Also, before anyone takes things too seriously, no children were scarred for life during the making of this book. Many of the featured child artists are now adults who fully realize they used to have no skills).

WHAT WOULD YOUR SUPERPOWER BE?

Starting from the top:
Damon, age 7: “When I was a kid, I used to draw myself as a superhero with special powers and compare it to my friends’ drawings. It’s fun until some s—head inevitably chooses “all powers” for his special ability and ruins the game, Damon.”
Cole, age 7: “When Peter Parker created his alter-ego to strike fear into the hearts of criminals, I doubt ‘spread eagled with a constipated expression’ is what he had in mind.”

    I know, deep down somewhere in my cryptic kindness core, that I shouldn’t be laughing so hard at this, or even at all, yet tears of merriment are coursing down my cheeks.

    This is sad.How jaded have we become that we are entertained by a grown man ripping apart art by 6 year olds?

    Been a fan of Maddox forever; his website has my friends and I laughing so hard sometimes we have to turn away for fear of health complications and inappropriate dampness. You have to understand the sheer ridiculousness of the character totally ripping apart the drawings for it to work, I guess. (and the examples shown here are VERY tame…) Viva Maddox, hope this does well for you!
