Twisted, original, educational, hysterically funny,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: 5 Very Good Reasons to Punch a Dolphin in the Mouth (And Other Useful Guides) (The Oatmeal) (Paperback)
Until I read this book I didn't really have a reason to punch a dolphin in the mouth. It had always been more of a random and uncontrolled sort of response when I was within reach of one. But after reading Matthew's book, I can now justify my behavior to the dolphinarium authorities in five different ways.
Seriously, Matthew Inman's sense of humor is way off center while always ringing true. You may not like every single strip (or "guide") but even if the captions don't do it for you, the drawings themselves will crack you up.
Caution: As I write this, Amazon says that customers who bought this book also bought Garfield books. That *has* to be an inside joke. "Look inside" or go to the author's site at theoatmeal.com before you buy this solely because you like Garfield.
Thank you Mr. TheOatmeal!

Unless Amazon's recommendations have changed, the "customers also bought" suggestion is "Garfield Minus Garfield", which is much creepier than Garfield.
