Read from January 22 to April 22, 2011 — I own a copy

This is not a sit-down-and-read-all-at-once book. This is a book to be kept somewhere where you may occasionally need to read a few pages to keep you occupied while waiting -- say, in your car for when the Brooklyn Bridge is inexplicably closed, causing a midnight traffic jam, or when you're at the dentist's office and have forgotten your Kindle.

Although I found much of this book quite amusing, I was mostly just impressed -- and sometimes flabbergasted -- at his creativity. I really don't know how someone can come up with So. Much. Absurdity. and ridiculous nonsense without the aid of several illegal substances. Funnily enough, there's actually a smidgen of truth in a lot of his sections, just enough to keep me a little off-balance as I read. Good times.
