Some of these cartoons are laugh out loud funny: Angst over easy, the Wrath of Ben and Jerry, the man on a desert island waiting for his waitress. Who knew food could be this funny. Read full review

Jack Ziegler's "How's the Squid" was a book that made me laugh while I was having some free time while I looked around to see what will make me laugh. I will surely read it again soon, though a few pages I didn't really get, but that is perfectly fine, since the rest makes up for it. I look forward to finding more books by him soon. :)
