Is nice, but... If you check the Internet website of the Oatmeal you will find that there are not too many surprises in this book, almost none, so is a little bit disappointing to spend money in something you can check all the time via web. ( )

This was a runner-up for the 2012 "Best in Humor" Goodreads of the year award and with good reason. This book was hilarious six ways from Sunday! The author, Matthew Inman, an innate comedic genius and cat whisperer, authored this LOL, comic strip-style book that presents cats and their behavior anthropomorphically (a style similar to Gary Larson's "The Far Side")

Author Inman's secret recipe:

All Natural, No-Meth, Endorphin Releaser (see disclaimer)

This CATalicious dessert, made from an exotic blend of humor genera, creates a unique, endorphin-releasing, mirthful experience bound to arrest even the most sour of moods.

Take equal parts of blue and CAThartic humor; add 1/2-Cup situational cat behavior and a teaspoon of anecdotal examples; bake at 350 degrees for 7-10 minutes. Remove from oven allow to cool. Sprinkle with a touch of macabre for artistic presentation.

Yield: 1 serving of stress-relieving, blood-pressure lowering, heart healthy dose of humor.

Disclaimer: Recipe quality may suffer or flop altogether for those who haven't had any experience with cats. Cat owners/lovers will experience a greater more satisfying result; whereas cat haters and/or ignoramuses will only be wasting their time trying to find the door to the inner circle of the former.

I follow the oatmeal online. I love their comics about pets and this book was just like the website. It's riotously funny and very accurate. I have put their other books on hold and plan to read them the minute they show up in the holds queue. Some of the frank talk about how animals lick their privates could offend some people but hey people pick their noses so its really not all that strange. ( )

I got this for my birthday last year and I haven't stopped laughing since! The sad thing is, some of the behaviors are quite accurate... ( )
