In Matthew Inman's New York Times best selling 5 Very Good Reasons to Punch a Dolphin in the Mouth (And Other Useful Guides), samurai sword-wielding kittens and hamsters that love .50-caliber machine guns commingle with a cracked out Tyrannosaur that is extremely hard to potty train. Bacon is better than true love and you may awake in the middle of the night to find your nephew nibbling on your toes. Inman creates these quirky scenes for theoatmeal.com, which launched in July 2009 and already has more than 82 million page views. In fact, every 15 to 30 seconds, someone Googles one of theoatmeal.com's creations. Now, 60 of Inman's comic illustrations and life-bending guides are presented in full-color inside 5 Very Good Reasons to Punch a Dolphin in the Mouth (And Other Useful Guides). Consider such handy advice as: 4 Reasons to Carry a Shovel at All Times, 6 Types of Crappy Hugs, 8 Ways to Tell if Your Loved One Plans to Eat You, 17 Things Worth Knowing About Your Cat, and 20 Things Worth Knowing About Beer.

While I also enjoyed "How to tell if your cat is plotting to kill you" more than this book, it was still an amusing compilation of comics. Like Family Guy, I preferred the zany, completely random skits rather than the gory / extremely awkward ones. But still entertaining!

Its very disturbing but is also pretty funny tho it is very mature read

Not for anyone over thirty. I loved the grammar instructions, but other than that, just for the young who are not big content readers.

If you're a fan of the website, you'll love this book. A lot of the comics are from the website, but there's a few new ones too.

Quite useful guides on things. I finally found out why my hi fives, hugs, and campfires never work. Most of the content is completely unrelated but it is funny
