Matthew Inman's first collection of The Oatmeal.com
spent six weeks on the New York Times bestseller
list and sold 200,000 copies. This pivotal and influential comic
collection titled 5 Very Good Reasons to Punch a Dolphin in the
Mouth introduced Samurai sword-wielding kittens and informed
us on how to tell if a velociraptor is having pre-marital sex.
Matthew's cat-themed collection How to Tell If Your Cat Is
Plotting to Kill You is a #1 New York Times
bestseller with more than half a million copies in print. Now with
Why Grizzly Bears Should Wear Underpants, Inman offers a
delicious, tantalizing follow-up featuring all new material that
has been posted on the site since the publication of the first book
plus never-before-seen comics that have not appeared
anywhere. As with every Oatmeal collection, there is a
pull-out poster at the back of the book.
In this second collection of over 50 comics, you'll be treated to
the hilarity of "The Crap We Put Up with Getting On and Off an
Airplane," "Why Captain Higgins Is My Favorite Parasitic Flatworm,"
"This Is How I Feel about Buying Apps," "6 Things You Really Don't
Need to Take a Photo of," and much more. Along with lambasting
the latest culture crazes, Inman serves up recurrent themes such as
foodstuffs, holidays, e-mail, as well as technological,
news-of-the-day, and his snarky yet informative comics on grammar
and usage. Online and in print, The Oatmeal delivers
brilliant, irreverent comic hilarity.
