The premise of this book is fairly interesting -- type partial search strings into Google and pick out the strangest suggestions for string completions. Frequently the authors manage to find something good, but every once in a while they manage to come up with things that, well, aren't funny. And that's where the real humor in this book lies -- the authors missing a pop cultural reference or something like that and making idiots of themselves in front of the reader.
This book isn't trying very hard, and as a result I'm not going to try very hard with this review. There's just not much point in buying it; someone else will probably come up with exactly the same thing a year from now, and likely do it better.
Despite the drawbacks, I still enjoyed the book for the often otherworldly searches that people use Google for. Opening the book at random, I offer these representative examples (all errors in originals): "is it gas or am i pregnant;" "ever wonder why ice cubes are so boring;" "when I grow up i want to be a principal or a caterpillar;" "would you say i have a plethora of pinatas;" "i didnt know she had the gi joe kung fu grip;" "france is set to concede that is aware of an alien presence on earth by no later than friday" (which inspired an obvious but funny comment involving Germany); "i noticed i was on fire" (Really? Someone just noticed that?); "i like to eat ice cream and i really enjoy a nice pair of slacks" (I cannot imagine why anyone would Google this one); "i like to eat cake while excruciating" (I loved the misuse of this painful adjective and so did the authors); "barfing game" (I don't even want to know); "why are the kardashians famous" (this is by far the most sensible query in the book); "what is it called when a giraffe swallowed a toy jet" (I am genuinely curious about this one, and I'm betting it involved a first-person experience); "cats and their personal stereos;" "i am disappointment in you're grammar" (my penultimate favorite of the bunch); and, finally, "oprah underwear," which is a search that would have never occurred to me, but there's all kinds of people in the world (and most of them, apparently, know how to use Google.)
This book can be read cover to cover in less than an hour, but it does have some genuinely amusing moments. It would make a good gift or Christmas stocking stuffer for those with surreal senses of humor or people fascinated with the mental sensibilities (or lack thereof) of their fellow human beings.
