Why would anyone want to punch a dolphin in the mouth? Isn't that animal cruelty? All the better to read
5 Very Good Reasons to Punch a Dolphin in the Mouth
Matthew Inman of The Oatmeal
published March 1, 2011
Ouch, I'm not exactly sure these are very good reasons. But, and there's a little butt* coming, this is a comic book of satire. All the better to read it with an open mind, a box to tissues to wipe away the tears of laughter, and a friend nearby so you can say, "hey, listen to this...."
Because I've edited many newsletters, I tend to catch errors. When I proofread our school's yearbook, I caught the misspelling of our governor's name (even after the administration had proofed it). It is my OCD. So my favorite comics are the ones that focus on grammatical lessons:
- Ten words you need to stop misspelling
- How to use a semicolon
Then there are great hints for internet addicts like you and me: How to suck at text messaging and Facebook.
As a female, I don't know How to Pee Like a Champ. Inman demonstrates; oops, I mean he doesn't demonstrate in person, it's a comic!
Coffee is part of the name of this blog. So I laughed at 15ish things worth knowing about coffee, then I went eeeeew at something he said. I'm going now to grab a cuppa robusta and some more recent oatmeal. Even if you don't like to eat oatmeal, you'll enjoy feeding your mind with this.
*You ask where's the little butt coming? 'tis at the bottom of this comic. Inman's book has 27 new comics not shown on The Oatmeal.
