Why Grizzly Bears Should Wear Underpants

by the Oatmeal
Andrews McMeel Publishing, 168 pp., $16.99 (paper)

Forget those insipid, lady mag personality quizzes: This latest collection from web-comic king of the hill Matthew Inman is just as instructive on our inner tickings. Case in point: I did not know that I am the kind of person who gets the giggles over masturbating koala bears. Now I know, and I feel like this is useful information. Alternately a gentle humanist and a rabid, spiral-eyed rage monster, the author applies his illustrated humor to a broad canvas; smartphones, rooster sauce, bad grammar, and fart clouds are just a few of his topics of interest. Turns out I'm also helpless to fart cloud goofs. Like I said, instructive. – Kimberley Jones
