The Oatmeal Has Landed
Matthew “The Oatmeal” Inman’s highly-anticipated comic collection
5 Very Good Reasons to Punch a Dolphin in the Mouth is finally here! The book features fan-favorites like Why I’d Rather Get Punched in the Testicles than Call Customer Service, How to Use a Semi-Colon, and 5 Reasons Pigs are More Awesome than You plus more than 25 never-before-seen comics. And, if that’s not enough, each book comes with a pull-out poster of Why I Believe Printers Were Sent from Hell.
Released by Andrews McMeel on March 1, the book quickly climbed the Amazon.com bestseller list to the #2 position. In the Twittersphere, Oatmeal-lovers were abuzz, congratulating Matt, tweeting about their newly-purchased books and getting psyched up for The Oatmeal Book Tour, which kicked off last night in Matt’s hometown of Seattle where nearly 700 eager fans showed up for the signing at University Bookstore. The 15-city tour includes a stop at SXSW on March 13 where Matt will host a panel on Viral Marketing, while in other cites he’ll likely be lecturing about man nipples and Kodiak Bear perms, signing books and giving greasy handshakes.
