Being the child of two crap-keepers, this book is close to home and hysterical! A fun way to think that thousands of people are really laughing with you when they see the embarrassing kitsch your parents proudly display around the house. This one's definitely going on the coffee table next to my cow-shaped creamer!

Joel Dovev has created something out of nothing. The something is a laugh-out-loud funny calendar (and concept) and the nothing is...well...not literally nothing, but as close as you can get in the physical realm. Many of us have had the experience of finding otherworldly tchotchkes and trinkets in our parent's houses, but Dovev saw the comic potential like nobody before him and put on a full-fledged exhibition online, in book form, and now as a calendar.

I am extremely picky about wall calendars, but as soon as I found out this was available I ordered it, and what a great decision that proved to be. The illustrations range from the merely strange to the totally surreal, while the captions are more than up to the challenge of commentary on the detritus plaguing countless attics, basements, and, let's face it, prominent display areas in homes across the country.

This is a great choice for a 2012 calendar, particularly for those who have been forced to sort through their parent's belongings.

Now for the answer to the question I posed in the title: of course the clown is smiling "because he just ate a box of puppies." As if that wasn't self-evident!

This book is hilarious. The pictures and captions are fantastic. You just can't believe some of these items exist...the deer hoof can opener gets me every time!

I bought this for my husband with high hopes that it would be amusing and entertaining. It's not. At all. It was a definite waste of money. I rarely write bad reviews. I've been lucky with my purchases and have relied heavily on customer reviews. I don't want anyone else to waste their $ on this.

I read all the reviews on this before buying it. Most all reviewers gave it a 5 star. I ordered it for my adult son, who believes all our beautiful knickknacks (his translation - CRAP) will make one spectacular bonfire upon our demise. I agree...the author has captured the highly comedic notion of "parental house crap" completely as well as the paralyzing fear of every child that he will inherit the crap or worse yet turn into his parents! However, I was very disappointed on a singular point. The book for the most part is hilarious...but I feel that several pictures with sexual and racial captions really detracted from the overall comedic quality of the book. The book is clearly not suitable for young children and teens and should not be left out for them to be able to read. I certainly hope the author when his does a second edition .... and there most certainly should be one forthcoming given all the parental crap in the world...will stick with the absurd not the obscene.

You won't believe some of the things you see in here.

I know it's appealing to just scroll through these types of blogs on the internet in lieu of buying a physical copy of the book, but I recommend this one. It's just fun to pass around a room and gawk at. Great selection of oddities, many of which hit close to home in the best way.

I absolutely LOVED "Crap at My Parents House" since I have been a major contributor of crap for my parents a lot of years. I have never laughed so hard out loud in my life while reading a book so I strongly recommend that you don't read this book out in public. I was reading it at the salon and my stylist asked me what was so funny and I could not catch my breath long enough from laughing to read it to him so I handed him the book and let him read for himself! So far I have bought 10 copies to give away as gifts! Thank you to the talented, funny writer Mr. Joel Dovev. I can't wait for your next one!

Not very politically correct. Not for those who take offence easily but a crack up of a book, I even bought one as a gift for some one, Great for a belly laugh.
