Those stories are a good representation of the type of humor in this book.

I suggest purchasing the paperback for bathroom reading and the hardcover for your classier guests.

This book is simply genius comedy. Some of the best work The Onion has ever done. This is a must-own for all history buffs with a sense of humor. You really have to have a good grasp of history to fully appreciate all of the jokes, but just about anyone should be able to enjoy it on some level.

Format: Hardcover
This book provides HOURS of entertainment. The page with the huge headline "MAN LANDS ON F%@!ING MOON" and accompanying transcript of the conversation between the lunar lander and ground control ["Lander: Holy Sh#t! I'm on the f#$%ing MOON!" Houston: "Holy S#@T!"] alone is worth the price of the book. But there are countless smaller nuggets, such as a small entry in one of the pages from the early 1900s: "German Philosopher Posits Possible Existence of 'Supermodels'".

Without a doubt the funniest book I have ever read.

God bless the Onion! Nothing and no one is sacred or left unscathed. I have given this to firends who are communists, democrats, republicans, evangelicals, etc. Anyone with a sense of humor and some knowledge of history will love this!

I've been a fan of The Onion for years, and enjoy their weekly newsletter as well as their daily one-minute podcasts. That said, I found this book to be less entertaining - sure there's ribald and sophomoric humor (a la the Harvard Lampoon and then National Lampoon of decades ago) but I guess I prefer my bon-mots in smaller doses.

Plenty clever, but not my first choice in humorous books.

If the title for my review offends you then don't read this book. If not then the humor found in this book will entertain you for hours. I suggest purchasing the paperback for bathroom reading and the hardcover for your classier guests.

Bought as a gift for my father-in-law. He has not ceased reading it out loud to any family member that makes the mistake of walking by him!
