OK, so #4 and #5 are cheating, but still. And #3... well. Let's just say this ain't gonna be approved for use in classrooms any time soon... Or IS IT? O_O

I've been a fan of The Oatmeal for a while now, and seriously, some of the stuff Mickel Inderman comes up with makes me cry tears of laughter and gasp for air while I sound like an asthmatic something that wheezes for air. So of course, I had to read this. And since I'm a fan of the guy and wanted to support him, I paid full price for it. $14.99 for about an hour of reading. But lots of LOLz, which makes it worth it! :D

This book contains one of my favorite comics evar: Why I Would Rather Be Punched In the Testicles Than Call Customer Service. But I had to drop it a star because it did NOT contain my other favorite: Why I Don't Cook At Home. Although there are so many more that have Almost-Favorite status and were also left out of the book. HMPH!

Anyway, Good stuff, and the drawings make me giggle almost as much as the off the wall things that Mr. Oatmeal thinks of. I wish I was 1/100th as awesome as he apparently must be. *sigh* I'll just caress the book and try to absorb some latent awesomeness residue from that.
