Although I frequent the Oatmeal website often, having a book to read in the bus or while sitting on the toilet is really nice!

The pullout poster already has it's place above the office printer where collegues stand and chuckle while waiting for it to jam or complain about toner (see chart for more options!).

I was looking forward to get this book for a long time! When I finally got it I was pleasantly surprised of how funny and smart it is! Graphics are awesome and the typography is just very inspirating. Especialy now, when I am writing my diploma thesis about typography :) Thanks for great product!

I bought this for my son for Christmas and he is still laughing. He has taken the poster about the printer out and stuck it on his wall. Oatmeal definitely has the same sense of homour as an 11 yr old. We tried to explain the jokes to his grandparents but they just looked sad.

This is an absolute wet-yourself-laughing book of short comics and narratives from the genius Matthew Inman, better known online as The Oatmeal.

(If until now you've only considered comics to be dodgy manga or the Beano, think again.)

Targeting daily ills and irks, the book teaches as how spades can revolutionise supermarket queues, how woman at discos look like slutty oopma loompas, and why dinosaurs should never be given crack cocaine. Mathew deserves a standing ovation for his `how to use grammar' comics alone.

Achingly funny, incredibly clever, strangely informative and REALLY nicely presented as a thick, glossy tome. It would be all birthday gift presents solved for the year, but I love it so much I don't want to share it!

A must for readers of The Oatmeal! It contains both never-before-published cartoons as well as some of my favorites from the website.
The book has a "nice feel" to it, too and the pages are thick and appears to be quite sturdy.
Very satisfied with this :)

Just finished reading this and it's by far one of the most hilarious books I've ever read...plus it's educational; It taught me how to use a semicolon!

This is a must buy, if only for the 'How to spot if your Velociraptor is having pre-marital sex' comic! XD

Not much in it that can't be found on the website. I was enthused to begine with but have not picked it up since i first looked through it. Would not reccoment buying the book although there are greeting cards and other merchandise available that are worth it.

In all the right ways, this is a toilet book!!
Most of you will know what I mean. It is very amusing to just pick up and glance through for 5-10mins.
Would recommend! Any guests using your facilities will also be deeply amused.

I gave this book to a friend. She has found it very funny. I have run out of words. Why does Amazon make us do this?

A really funny book by a really funny author, his website is hilarious and this book is just as good. An amazing coffee table book, or even a perfect present for someone who has everything!
