The Oatmeal. The result is a pitch-perfect gift for any dog owner. Sarah Andersen. This is just sad. Maybe if I fake a smile. I need cupcakes. Why do I need cupcakes? The book. Well, after that first comic, it got a bit better. Still an improvement. And educational. Some people don't know when to use that word but want to use it anyway because they think it makes them sound smart.
Well, it doesn't. I don't think I can mention another one. According to the book description, I was going to get "brilliant, irreverent comic hilarity". I'm still looking. So, to be honest, there are some good comics in this book. They're about ordinary situations to which everyone can relate to and all that with humor and irony sometimes, sarcasm.
However, other comics are completely forgettable. Unfortunately, there are plenty of those. Some pictures seemed to be there to simply fill a page and nothing more.

Probably as soon as I try to transfer this text, my laptop will be struck by lightning just to teach me a lesson about being a smart arse. The Oatmeal is an awesome comic.
But I digress. But you know how it is with humor: the more chances it takes, the more likely it is not to please. Read: massively offend. And The Oatmeal takes pretty much every chance available.

Starting this year with reading a comic book is not a bad idea at all.
In this book, all I can see is intelligence, sense of humor, fantasy, and of course a bit of creativity. I could also see a diversity of topics that most of them I could relate, but at the same time some of them did not seem relatable to me. All in all it was a good experience.

I started to read through the book and realized I had seen all these before. As it turns out, I already had a copy on my Kindle.

Enjoy this great book by The Oatmeal! Dec 31, Jessica rated it really liked it Shelves: graphics-n-comics , humor.
Though I do wish he didn't have such a potty mouth. I don't think there's a single page I could show to my 10yo, who wants to read the book so bad, having seen me giggling over it.
This is a collection of his bits from his website, as far as I can tell. I'm not a regular reader of his site, so I don't know if there is any new material. But it's got some of the best, like his love for sriracha and the life cycle of his favorite parasite.
