5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious Conversation Starter...Must Have!, November 11, 2012

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Onion Book of Known Knowledge: A Definitive Encyclopaedia Of Existing Information (Hardcover)
I was looking for coffee table books for my new apartment and came across this book while browsing Amazon's huge collection of hardcover books. The Onion Book of Known Knowledge is absolutely hilarious. There is an entry for almost anything you can think of from "crumbs" to "Steve Jobs" to "jupiter." Each entry is funnier than the next and all are well-written. The book has been an outstanding conversation starter and is a favorite amongst our friends and family.

Bottom line, everyone should have this book.

Just wanted to point out that I'm pretty sure you didn't mean "each entry is funnier than the next."

If that were true, the entries would get more and more serious as the book goes on, until after finishing the last page, the reader would probably choose to ring up Dr. Kevorkian for a house call.

You should have written one of the "entries", Gary. Very funny comment!
