The McSweeney's Joke Book of Book Jokes

McSweeney's is one of my favorite web sites. It's kind of like the Onion except for being targeted to the hyperinformed McSweeney's is targeted to the hyperliterate. This book is a sample of essays that were previously published on the site.

Personally I hate the trend of the publication of web content in book form. Atrocities I have seen have included "Sh*t My Dad Says"(sic), "Stuff White People Like" and "Thx Thx Thx" (sic) turned into book form. I have also seen blogs turned into spectacular books like "The Happiness Project" and pretty much everything Seth Godin does.

Unfortunately This book is from the former category and thus is one of the worst time wasters I have ever experienced.
