    I love the Oatmeal s comics, and I love reading things to my little boy, so it seemed completely natural for me to try sharing this book with my little boy.It didn t work out so well As I started reading, I realized that a lot of the humor wouldn t make sense to him, or would just be in appropriate The one exception was the comic about the dog eating its own poop We had a good laugh together over that Apparently poop eating is a universal constant in terms of humor.

    I discovered The Oatmeal during a charity campaign that resulted from creator Matt Inman s internet kerfluffle about an online news aggregator site using his material After Inman complained, the site owner sent him a letter alleging defamation and demanding 20,000 Inman responded in typical mocking fashion starting a donation campaign on Indiegogo for American Cancer Society and National Wildlife Federation I started following him out of admiration for someone that had a just cause and took I discovered The Oatmeal during a charity campaign that resulted from creator Matt Inman s internet kerfluffle about an online news aggregator site using his material After Inman complained, the site owner sent him a letter alleging defamation and demanding 20,000 Inman responded in typical mocking fashion starting a donation campaign on Indiegogo for American Cancer Society and National Wildlife Federation I started following him out of admiration for someone that had a just cause and took it a step higher Although this has nothing to do with the book, Goodreads, it does show that authors behavior can influence reading both positively and negatively.When he first posted My Dog The Paradox, I laughed so hard, I cried Seriously There s something perfectly twisted about his description of dogs, their bravery, their fears, their obsessions and their devotions.Part of the endearment is the drawing style, a MS Paint basic shapes in which the dog mostly resembles a snack size Snickers bar Recently Matt posted a picture of his drawing style through the years, and his earliest one was photograph quality You wouldn t know it, but he s actually artistically talented Of course, it also takes talent to use bug eyes to convey expression, but it s a different kind The book version of My Dog is nicely colored, substituting color for his finely shaded webcomic greyscale He first published it in a poster, but when the book version came out, I had to have it.Inman is a little vulgar, but I confess I find it adds to the humor Take the My dog has absolutely zero interest in being clean page, of a little dog rolling in fresh horse poop It s facing page unless it concerns his testicles Not only true, but hysterical in the cartoon, which is a chalkboard presumably written by his dog that includes Today s Agenda 11 am lick balls get them sooper clean 12pm lick balls even moar clean Then there s the chain cartoon of the process of a dog eating poop, vomiting, eating it it again, then pooping it out If you don t believe this actually happens, check a pet store for all the products that are supposed to make poop taste bad. Gross Absolutely True Totally.Then there s the list of things his dog eats that includes pencils and bees, coupled with a cartoon of a puzzled dog staring at a plate of broccoli If you have a dog, you know this experience For instance, my Labrador has to take pills every morning Won t touch them unless they are concealed in cheese or peanut butter But the one time I dropped an ibuprofen by her Gone in 5 seconds and it required following it with an emetic, since ibuprofen is toxic to dogs.After making you laugh so hard your muscles hurt, he goes for the gooey center, the enthusiasm dogs have for their human owners, whether we re gone for 4 hours or 4 minutes, and the sadness we have that their lives are so short.Read it online here My Dog The Paradox But I highly suggest supporting his work in some monetary fashion, because not only is he funny, he s willing to be emotionally and ethically brave

    This is an adorable little comic It s short, sweet and funny And even so, still very touching If you ve ever had a dog that does unfathomably weird and disgusting things, but you loved them whole heartedly anyway, you ll know what I mean.

    The War and Peace of poop eating dog books Almost unbearably suspenseful, what with the horsebeast and all You ll laugh You may cry You may laugh so hard you cry And then you ll think really hard before letting your dog lick your face.Seriously, I hope this guy makes a gazillion dollars and goes to live happily on a tropical island with beautiful ladies feeding him exotic sherbets.
