The Asshole Differential Continues (& we carry on) , a political satire and thriller that incorporates various art forms, including manga, karaoke, podcasts, and sock puppets, is the story of three prisoners, Monkey, Dog and Banana, who are incarcerated indefinitely on a boat moored in an unknown sea. They are held in captivity without charge of any specific crimes and engage in power games with the closeted guard in an attempt to survive and eventually escape.
The Asshole Differential Continues (& we carry on) explores the attitudes that underlie prison torture and the sexuality and violence inherent in the fraternity initiation rights of organizations like Skull and Bones. In the age of family values and sex scandals amidst the righteous, of Guantanamo, and black sites, The Asshole Differential Continues (& we carry on) examines the intersection between the repressed desires of the powerful elite and the banality of torture in prison where abuse is part of the vernacular.
