Revue de presse
"The utter relevance and poignancy of these often deceptively anecdotal funnies make Inman a Gary Larson for the iPad generation." (Publishers Weekly)
Praise for How to Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill You:
“Matt is the first native stand-up comic of the Internet. This book, and all his work, shows just how perfectly he nails the pulse of the Web dwellers like me. While this book is printed on paper, it oozes what's great about the weird, quirky, but genuinely awesomeness of the Web — and Matt Inman.”
(Ben Huh, CEO of ICanHasCheezburger.com)
"If Inman isn't a king of the Internet, he's certainly among its royalty. The Oatmeal is one of the most popular humor sites on the web." (Todd Leopold, CNN)
"In 2009, Inman put his hand to the page, and the world hasn't stopped laughing since." (Nick Carbone, Time Magazine)
"Dangerously funny." (TODAY.com)

Why Grizzly Bears Should Wear Underpants
is the second variety comic collection and fourth book from the comedic mastermind behind TheOatmeal.com, Matthew Inman. Classics from the website, including “Dear Sriracha Rooster Sauce,” “What It Means When You Say Literally,” and “What We Should Have Been Taught in Our Senior Year of High School,” are featured alongside never-before-seen works of epic hilarity that will delight veteran and newbie Oatmeal fans alike.
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.
