Product description

Where do we come from? Who created us? Why are we here? These are questions that have sporadically interested people since the dawn of time, but whose answers have continually eluded us. Now in their new book, Jon Stewart and "The Daily Show" writing staff (who include the team behind "The Onion") tackle them and many more with their trademark wit, irreverence and intelligence. They will take us on an intellectual journey through time - a quest back to the very moment of creation - that will maybe, just maybe help us figure out exactly how and why everything got so irretrievably f****ed up. From applications for genetic reconstitution by aliens to the meanings of anatomy, gender or nourishment, every aspect of life on this planet is reexplored, reexamined and made newly hilarious in this book.
