Thanks to the Oatmeal, I now know the truth. She knows that I know that she knows that I know. She is watching me. I am waiting for her next move. It's like a game. Like a game of what?... yes, cat and mouse, my friend. Only this time she is playing for keeps.
I'll always have that...
Also, the damn thing was funny.
Addressing each of these:
1) When MS Works doesn't work on your Windows 98 PC, do you blame the writer? Oh yeah, you are the person holding your mouse upside down and calling the support desk to come down to fix it.
2) Do your homework man! If the title didn't give you a heads up that this book is a bit effed up, then reading Matthew's online content would surely give you an indication of what you're in for. If you don't like profanity and you read /bought this book...only you are to blame for not having enough media literacy to make a good decision about your purchase.
3) Read the author's webpage for this book (Amazon won't let me post it here). It very clearly describes a book ALL ABOUT CATS. Additionally, when do you expect an author's book to be exactly like his/her last book? Ok...except for Cormac Mccarthy.
Ok...if you've gotten this far in my stupid little rant, here's my psuedo review. If you like The Oatmeal, you are a crazy cat person that knows you are a crazy cat person (and/or simply enjoy laughing at crazy cat people), and you realize you should buy the actual physical/paper copy of graphic content (most of which is available online for free, but you like supporting artists and their awesome works), then stop reading my crappy review and go buy this book. If not, stop reading my crappy review and use the comments to tell me how dumb this review is.
In conclusion, The Oatmeal is nothing if not pure genius. If you don't get that, you should really question the value of your life.
Because this guy makes me laugh; he is an excellent comic that takes down-to-earth material, makes it completely unrealistic (or sometimes too realistic,) and comes out on top almost every time. This book, however, really disappointed me. As much as I love his cat comics, you can only use the same joke about nard-licking, leg-clawing, face-sitting cats so many times before it gets old. I felt like very little of the Oatmeal's wild creativity went into this book, even though he had a limited theme of cats vs. the world. Also, full page comics are great when they aren't being used as 20-page filler to make the book appear worth the money. I hope to see more in the near future - hopefully, another book like the first to draw the Oatlets back in after this flop.
BORROW this book from a friend if you want to find out more about the inner-secrets of the enigma that is the felis catus.
