Author(s): Matthew Inman
In this third collection of over 60 comics, you'll be treated to the hilarity of "Dear Sriracha Rooster Sauce," "The Crap We Put Up with Getting On and Off an Airplane," "Why Captain Higgins Is My Favorite Parasitic Flatworm," "This Is How I Feel about Buying Apps," "What it Means When You Say Literally," "7 Things You Really Don't Need to Take a Photo of," and much more. Along with lambasting the latest culture crazes, Inman serves up recurrent themes such as foodstuffs, parasites, unicorns, as well as technological, news-of-the-day, and his snarky yet informative comics on grammar and usage. Online and in print, The Oatmeal delivers comic hilarity without any lumpy goo.
"The utter relevance and poignancy of these often deceptively anecdotal funnies make Inman a Gary Larson for the iPad generation." (Publishers Weekly) Praise for How to Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill You: "Matt is the first native stand-up comic of the Internet. This book, and all his work, shows just how perfectly he nails the pulse of the Web dwellers like me. While this book is printed on paper, it oozes what's great about the weird, quirky, but genuinely awesomeness of the Web - and Matt Inman." - (Ben Huh, CEO of ICanHasCheezburger.com) "If Inman isn't a king of the Internet, he's certainly among its royalty. The Oatmeal is one of the most popular humor sites on the web." (Todd Leopold, CNN) "In 2009, Inman put his hand to the page, and the world hasn't stopped laughing since." (Nick Carbone, Time Magazine) "Dangerously funny." (TODAY.com)
