I received a free copy of this book as a Goodreads giveaway and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Filled with snarky humor, it's a hilarious book. I can't tell you how many times I laughed out loud while reading it. While there is some factual information presented, it's not so much of an attempt to educate, but a tongue-in-cheek commentary on animal and human behavior. It's a short book, but I only allowed myself to read a few "grades" at a time, because I didn't want to finish it too quickly. I passed my copy to a friend in dire need of a chuckle. It originated as a series of blogs, which is readily apparent in the short reviews.

new words: ungulate, gorp, ecumenicalism, retromingent, aposematism
