Good Reasons to Punch a Dolphin in the Mouth (The Oatmeal)

Matthew Inman is a genius and The Oatmeal is his brainchild. As a child, I was never a fan of oatmeal, but it was better than cornmeal. Inman altered my reality with the magic of stinging pterodactyl laser piss in my eyes.
5 very good reasons to punch a dolphin in the mouth ( and other useful guides ) was a great read. There are a number of classic Oatmeal comics in this book, including “Why Nikola Tesla is the most awesome geek who ever lived”, “7 reasons to keep you Tyrannosaur off crack cocaine”, and “How to use a semicolon, the most feared punctuation on earth”
There are also a number of new comics featured? only in the book. “5 reasons to have rabies instead of babies” being the one i enjoyed the most.
I cannot say this is a book for everyone. The humor of TheOatmeal is a special brand, If you are unfamiliar, go hit up and get a taste.
Brand new it can be purchased at online retailers for under ten bucks, so itis really quite a steal.

  1. I lurves the Oatmeal! It has taught me some very important things like how long I would survive if chained to a bed with a velociraptor in the room and how I could tell if my loved ones were planning to eat me. I am glad you love it to or I might have to ptero-you a new asshole

  2. like i said. Pterodactyl laser piss changed my life.
    oh yeah, and the anti teenager sound file that i downloaded and play at work for people not paying attention (also found on theOatmeal)
