The biggest selling book in the independent Northwest this past holiday season was The Oatmeal’s How To Tell if Your Cat is Plotting to Kill You. (“Kneading on you: You may think this is a sign of affection, but your cat is actually checking your internal organs for weakness.”) The Oatmeal is actually Matthew Inman, of Seattle, and you are dared to put down one of his books once the first laugh hits, on about page one-twelfth.
Here’s one for the trying out. Inman was at Book Expo America this past weekend signing copies of My Dog: The Paradox: A Lovable Discourse about Man’s Best Friend, and we have a signed copy for one of you. Leave a comment on this post—about cats, dogs, oatmeal, how Inman wasn’t that funny when you went to high school together—and we’ll pick a winner next week.
