Thirteen Sick Tasteless Classics, Part II is adult literature having adult content and language. The work spoofs, satirizes and humorizes thirteen classic stories from Greek mythology and from American, British, Danish and Biblical literature. Jay Dubya goes right to work retelling two popular ancient Greek myths' "Orpheus" and "The Three Golden Apples." In the area of ancient legends the author has also reorganized and corrupted the famous Bible-related tale "King David Chooses Solomon." Short story American literature is also spoofed and analyzed in a new rendition of Mark Twain's "Club Pilot on the Mississippi" and Edgar Allan Poe's "The Cask of Amontillado." Another American story satirized in this work is Herman Melville's Moby Dick chase called "A Whale of a Time." In addition Jack London's "The Story of Keesh" is also brutalized. O. Henry is not spared with a new decadent version of "The Ransom of Red Chief" and neither is Washington Irving's "A Legend of Sleepy Hollow." James Thurber's work is also de-sanitized in Jay Dubya's corruption of "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" re-done as "The Secret Wife of Walter Witty." British literature is not ignored in retelling versions of Rudyard Kipling's "Rikki-Tikki-Tavi" and in an ugly re-creation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's "The Red-headed League." Finally Danish literature is assaulted with a broadsiding of Hans Christian Andersen's classic fairy tale, "The Nightingale."
