So far I have bought 10 copies to give away as gifts!
Mary Pitinii
I know it's appealing to just scroll through these types of blogs on the internet in lieu of buying a physical copy of the book, but I recommend this one.
JM
My friend could not stop laughing at the pictures and captions in this book.

Being the child of two crap-keepers, this book is close to home and hysterical! A fun way to think that thousands of people are really laughing with you when they see the embarrassing kitsch your parents proudly display around the house. This one's definitely going on the coffee table next to my cow-shaped creamer!

This book is hilarious. The pictures and captions are fantastic. You just can't believe some of these items exist...the deer hoof can opener gets me every time!

Format: Calendar Verified Purchase
Joel Dovev has created something out of nothing. The something is a laugh-out-loud funny calendar (and concept) and the nothing is...well...not literally nothing, but as close as you can get in the physical realm. Many of us have had the experience of finding otherworldly tchotchkes and trinkets in our parent's houses, but Dovev saw the comic potential like nobody before him and put on a full-fledged exhibition online, in book form, and now as a calendar.

I am extremely picky about wall calendars, but as soon as I found out this was available I ordered it, and what a great decision that proved to be. The illustrations range from the merely strange to the totally surreal, while the captions are more than up to the challenge of commentary on the detritus plaguing countless attics, basements, and, let's face it, prominent display areas in homes across the country.

This is a great choice for a 2012 calendar, particularly for those who have been forced to sort through their parent's belongings.

Now for the answer to the question I posed in the title: of course the clown is smiling "because he just ate a box of puppies." As if that wasn't self-evident!

I bought this for my husband with high hopes that it would be amusing and entertaining. It's not. At all. It was a definite waste of money. I rarely write bad reviews. I've been lucky with my purchases and have relied heavily on customer reviews. I don't want anyone else to waste their $ on this.

Not very politically correct. Not for those who take offence easily but a crack up of a book, I even bought one as a gift for some one, Great for a belly laugh.

This book is fun to read/look through once. Then pass it along to someone else so they can get some laughs out of it.
