Overview

"As a vegan, the only chickens I consume are Savage's. I never miss a meal."-Dan Piraro, cartoonist of Bizarro

We've all been forced to endure jobs we don't like. We get up, go to work, go to bed, and do it again. No one knows these pains better than Doug Savage, whose dream of being a cartoonist was eclipsed by his ho- hum office job. That is, until he started doodling chicken cartoons on Post-its and turned them into one of the Internet's most popular cartoon blogs.

Savage Chickens is a collection of cartoons starring Doug's beloved chickens and their officemates that will get a laugh out of even the most jaded number-crunching colleague. Doug blends cynicism, optimism, and interactive activities to create a portable pep talk for the overworked and underappreciated that will keep you sane-and amused- during the morning bus ride, the meeting-filled Monday, the tenth load of laundry, the bathroom break, or the red-eye to the coast.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Like millions of other Americans, Doug Savage hated his job. To stifle his nine-to-five boredom, he did what most unhappy people do: He began drawing chicken cartoons on post-its. Before long, he had the makings of a work-related cartoon blog that even Picasso himself would have envied. (Okay, we were lying about the last part.) Savage Chickens records his great cluck forward with generous helpings of think puzzles, games, and other "secret desk drawers" of subversive fun.
