I'd feel bad about counting this as a book but it's on GR so...
Funny and irreverent and made me laugh when I needed it. Well done.

You can tell right off the bat if someone is a fan of the Colbert Report just by mentioning the title. Anyone who does not watch the show will have a confused look on their face and say something along the lines of "I don't get it".

This is a book that will make you laugh, sometimes until you cry.
