Overview

Matthew Inman’s first collection of The Oatmeal.com spent six weeks on the New York Times bestseller list and sold 200,000 copies. This pivotal and influential comic collection titled 5 Very Good Reasons to Punch a Dolphin in the Mouth introduced Samurai sword-wielding kittens and informed us on how to tell if a velociraptor is having pre-marital sex. Matthew's cat-themed collection How to Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill You is a #1 New York Times bestseller with more than half a million copies in print. Now with Why Grizzly Bears Should Wear Underpants, Inman offers a delicious, tantalizing follow-up featuring all new material that has been posted on the site since the publication of the first book plus never-before-seen comics that have not appeared anywhere.  As with every Oatmeal collection, there is a pull-out poster at the back of the book.

In this second collection of over 50 comics, you'll be treated to the hilarity of "The Crap We Put Up with Getting On and Off an Airplane," "Why Captain Higgins Is My Favorite Parasitic Flatworm," "This Is How I Feel about Buying Apps," "6 Things You Really Don't Need to Take a Photo of," and much more. Along with lambasting the latest culture crazes, Inman serves up recurrent themes such as foodstuffs, holidays, e-mail, as well as technological, news-of-the-day, and his snarky yet informative comics on grammar and usage. Online and in print, The Oatmeal delivers brilliant, irreverent comic hilarity.

    I read The Oatmeal on a regular basis, so I was fairly disappointed in the offerings of this newest book. I don’t know if I expected lots of new content or just more original stuff, but for some reason Why Grizzly Bears Should Wear Underpants was fairly underwhelming.        As with the previous Oatmeal books, the newest selection is a wide selection of the usual Oatmeal comics. The usual funny tone with incredible graphics, fans of the web comic are bound to laugh. If you are a fan though, you will find a majority of the comics had already appeared online, kind of making the book unnecessary. Sure there are a few new ones, but not enough to warrant an entire book.      A funny book that I did enjoy, I will warn that I had hoped for a little more original material. Nothing is as funny the second time around as it is the first. Still funny though and filled with wry humor, if you are a fan of cat jokes, or even bears in underpants, this book is for you.
