Some of my favorite sad monsters:
The Joy of Unicorns, where the narrator makes it clear if you're not hanging with unicorns like the other virtuous maidens, there's a good chance you're a slut. "Good luck finding a husband!"
Diet Hansel, where the witch from Hansel & Gretel's diet of children fattened on her house of candy catches up with her. Time to start feeding Hansel veggies.
The Werewolf Whisperer, where chunks of the text are "text obscured by blood stains."
Whao Oh Here She Comes, where Hall & Oates' "Maneater" is a real monster.
Not only is Sad Monsters funny, it is excellent for bathroom reading. Each story is only 2-3 pages long. The downside, is my husband thinks I'm insane because I spent the last few weeks cackling in the bathroom.
Not every essay is a blue ribbon winner, some made me laugh out loud, some just made me smile, one or two I flipped through because I have the attention span of a two year-old, post-Easter basket buffet. But Sad Monsters definitely keeps the funny coming much more reliably than writers of similar fare who tend to beat a clever premise to death with cliche jokes.
So if you're looking for a funny book, built for today's short attention spans, Sad Monsters might just let you live long enough to read it.
