In Matthew Inman\'s 5 Very Good Reasons to Punch a Dolphin in the Mouth (And Other Useful Guides), samurai sword-wielding kittens and hamsters that love .50-caliber machine guns commingle with a cracked out Tyrannosaur that is extremely hard to potty train. Bacon is better than true love and you may awake in the middle of the night to find your nephew nibbling on your toes. Inman creates these quirky scenes for theoatmeal.com, which launched in July 2009 and already has more than 82 million page views. In fact, every 15 to 30 seconds, someone Googles one of theoatmeal.com\'s creations. Now, 60 of Inman\'s comic illustrations and life-bending guides are presented in full-color inside 5 Very Good Reasons to Punch a Dolphin in the Mouth (And Other Useful Guides). Consider such handy advice as: * 4 Reasons to Carry a Shovel at All Times * 6 Types of Crappy Hugs * 8 Ways to Tell if Your Loved One Plans to Eat You * 17 Things Worth Knowing About Your Cat * 20 Things Worth Knowing About Beer

Review quote

"Delightfully absurd musings on both everyday life and fantasy from an unusually creative mind." (Kirkus Reviews) "Dangerously funny." (TODAY.com) "In 2009, Inman put his hand to the page, and the world hasn't stopped laughing since." (Nick Carbone, Time) "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) "Matthew Inman is the Gary Larson of the Internet age." (Ken Wheaton, Advertising Age)

The Book Depository is a great site and meets my exceptions, but the book isn't worth it because most of the comics can be found on the website www.theoatmeal.com for free.show more
