Based on Your Search History: Books Edition


I'm not sure when the last time was that I cleared my computer's history and deleted the assortment of cookies that have built up in my system.  This is both a good thing and a bad thing.

And a really amusing thing.

Because when I go browsing for books for gift ideas, I came across an entertaining selection that made me wonder if my computer knows me even as well as my husband knows me.

For your entertainment....

The Snark Handbook


This wasn't the first book recommended, but the one that made me realize there was some internet history in play.  The best part was when I realized that it's not just one book, but the first in a series!

Insults Every Man Should Know


I'm certainly not a man, but I can see the value in this book!  

Insults Every May Should Know includes sections on:
  • Insulting someone's intelligence
  • Insulting someone's sexual prowess
  • Insults for the office
  • Insults for game day
  • Insults throughout history
  • Insults from around the world
What's not to love about that!?


Little Penis:  Oh the Places You'll Grow!


Even Amazon knows I live in an All Boy household....it's my fate.  And so to make me feel better about it, they even suggested a penis book to add some humor to our so-very-not-boring life.

Little Penis:  Oh, The Places You'll Grow! doesn't come across as a child-friendly book that I can share with The Boys, but it does seem like it would be a book full of laughs.

This book recommends using your finger as a puppet as you navigate the pages, however, we all know that guys never follow instructions...


Penis Pokey


Because once you've clicked on one Penis book, Amazon thinks you want to see them all...

Yet another book that I wouldn't think is advisable for younger boys...in this book every scene has one thing missing and the reader is left to (creatively) complete the picture.  Penis Pokey is the book where you get to be the star!

Unless you're a girl.  Then you get to point and laugh at The Star while they read it.


Raising Unicorns:  Your Step-by-Step Guide to Starting and Running a Successful—and Magical—Unicorn Farm!


At first I thought this one was a random suggestion after the penis books, but after a moment's though, I understood what the two have in common.

Raising Unicorns: Your Step-by-Step Guide to Starting and Running a Successful—and Magical—Unicorn Farm! didn't really peak my interest so much because of the topic matter, but because of the level of sarcasm dripping from the reviews of those who have read the book.  I can't help but think we may have a few things in common.



The Official Dictionary of Sarcasm:  A Lexicon for Those of Us Who Are Better and Smarter Than the Rest of You


Speaking of sarcasm!  The Official Dictionary of Sarcasm: A Lexicon for Those of Us Who Are Better and Smarter Than the Rest of You presented itself as a great book idea for all the obvious reasons!  

However, the reviews left me thinking that there were wiser ways to spend my money (such as the Unicorn Farm).  Everyone has their own sense of humor and it would seem that the author thought his to be sarcastic, but his readers seem to disagree.
