Type of humor: Satire, Philosophically Weird
Working as the CEO of Heaven Incorporated throws Nietzsche into one hell of an existential crisis and now he wants to fire God.
But the board of directors, a group of squabbling philosophers, prevent him from taking any action. Adding to Nietzsche’s problems, the Norse Gods find their way back to Earth – presumably to take over world religion. In an effort to regain control, Nietzsche sends a suspicious god to recover them. Moreover, syphilis pushes him into a past life that he would rather forget.
Operation Cosmic Teapot has been called “an ontological, existential, tripped out tempest in a cosmic teapot,” and “psycho satire,” and even, “cerebral and subversive — and a load of fun, too.” While that might be true, one thing is certain: this is religious satire in high gear.
