Why Grizzly Bears Should Wear Underpants is the fourth book and second anthology from TheOatmeal.com creator, Matthew Inman. It’s not really really an anthology but the description is still apt.
I have always enjoyed The Oatmeal and this book was on sale at my local Barnes and Noble so I bought it. My wife and I made this our bathroom reader and my normally long visits instantly became even longer. It was a good thing that I read this on the toilet because I very nearly laughed my butt off. Ba-dum-ching! Buying this book directly led to the end of a fight so it holds a very dear place in my heart. It was a nice common ground for us and, you know, laughs.
This book is a collection of some of the more famous cartoons from Matt and The Oatmeal. I LOVED the grammar jokes throughout, especially “What It Means When You Say Literally” and “e.g. vs. i.e.” I really enjoyed men and women in just a t-shirt and “Dear Sriracha Rooster Sauce.” I laughed during literally (see what I did there) the entire book.
Why Grizzly Bears Should Wear Underpants is a great, easy read that will more than likely leave you laughing. You will find this much funnier if you a grammarian and appreciate well-placed profanity. If those things do not sound appealing I suggest that you check out The Oatmeal to see if you would appreciate the humor.
