did not like it
bookshelves: nonfiction, humor

Okay, yes, it's funny. Very much so, in places. But it's also one of those books that tries to be slick and hilarious by consciously making the most politically
incorrect jokes possible, with the result that it's by turns disgusting and actively repulsive. And, you know, I'll laugh at almost anything, as humor is one of the greatest forces of healing we have at our disposal. But the jokes here have a real bite to them, the face-saving retractions ring hollow, and I'm just not interested in wading through homophobia and sexism to get some whackily funny housekeeping tips.
