In Ant Farm, former Harvard Lampoon president Simon Rich finds humor in some very surprising places. Armed with a sharp eye for the absurd and an overwhelming sense of doom, Rich explores the ridiculousness of our everyday lives. The world, he concludes, is a hopelessly terrifying place–with endless comic potential.

Ant Farm is a fabulous collection of short snippets of cyncism and jadedness. Simon Rich spins every day mundane events into sheer comedic desperation narratives. Be warned though that this type of humor is not for everyone. However, for those who appreciate websites like McSweeneys, you will be big belly laughing for the duration of the read. Also be warned that it is an extremely quick read (I read the whole book in well under a hour). Perfect to bring on the bus or for a day at the beach. I recommend this book to anyone who loves books written by Jon Stewart or Stephen Colbert.

I loved this book. It is one of the funniest and most random things I have ever read. Some stuff wasn't as funny as the rest of the book but it didn't matter because the rest was so funny. I was looking for a book to do a speech with and I think I found the perfect book for it. Anyone that needs a good laugh just pick up this book.

I picked this book up in the humor section at B&N and saw that Jon Stewart said it was hilarious. I opened it up and read a few pages and it was hilarious, so I bought it. I read the whole book in about an hour and realized that the only funny parts of the book were the ones that I read in B&N. Not worth the money, just pick it up and read the few funny parts in the store and save your money.
