5.0 out of 5 stars Life often sucks... and is pretty funny for those who are watching..., July 8, 2012
This review is from: F My Life World Tour: Life's Crappiest Moments from Around the Globe (Paperback)
This is the book you need to read if you think you're having a bad day... F My Life World Tour: Life's Crappiest Moments from Around the Globe by Maxime Valette, Guillaume Passaglia, and Didier Gudej. It won't change what happened to cause your bad day, but you *should* end up laughing at others who haven't exactly enjoyed their day either. I finally had to leave the room as I kept interrupting my wife with "let me read you just one more..."

F My Life (yes, it's the F word, but the acronym commonly used is FML) is a web site where people can send in their FML gems that prove that people (and life) can often be cruel... and funny for those reading about it. Each page in this book has from four to six FML moments from around the globe. Some are embarrassing, such as "Today, I broke my little toe. It got stuck in my underwear as I struggled to get a leg through. FML". Some are sad, such as "Today, I got stuck in a hospital elevator from 10:30 to 11:45. I'm now the proud father of a daughter named Maria. She was born at 10:55. FML." Many are cruel, like "Today, it's been three days since I ran into my boyfriend's scantily clad sister in his apartment. Today, I realized that he doesn't have a sister. FML" But nearly all of them are laugh-worthy, for instance... "Today, my girlfriend looked through the contents of my refrigerator and started with her usual 'You're a pig, you never clean up' routine. She said, 'Look at this egg, it makes me want to throw up, it's black, covered in fur, AND THERE'S EVEN HAIR ON IT!' I took a look: It was a kiwi. FML"

I realize it's not nice to laugh at other peoples' misfortune, and you definitely don't want to laugh at them in their presence. But if they shared it online, I think it's fair game, and F My Life World Tour is perfect for plenty of laughs. It may also be pretty cheap therapy to help you realize that Life pretty much dumps on everyone at some point. :)
