Concisely, if you liked
(the book) and/or The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and/or The Onion, you’ll like this book. America
A sign of excellent comedic writing is the ability to be humourous and intelligent in 8-10 words. The Daily Show writers manage to achieve this on every page of this fake encyclopedia of Earth (with a focus on humans). Wry observations, quirky analyses and some laugh out loud social commentary fill this book.
While tempting to excerpt some of my faves, I don’t want to ruin any of the jokes.
Just go read it.
