Front Cover
Andrews McMeel Publishing, Oct 1, 2010 - Humor - 160 pages

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.

I am starting to get addicted to reading Mr. Inman's books. While this one was not as funny as the cat one I just read, it still made me laugh out loud. Read full review

Michael Inman's THE OATMEAL comics make me laugh, even if they are sometimes rude. 5 VERY GOOD REASONS TO PUNCH A DOLPHIN IN THE MOUTH is a great collection and a book I will never part with until I pass it on to my grandchildren. Kids love fart jokes. Read full review
