Often irreverent and outrageous, but rarely truly offensive and always funny."

Tastes Like Human: The Shark Guys' Book of Bitingly Funny Lists
(3.00 from 1 review)
Tastes Like Human: The Shark Guys' Book of Bitingly Funny Lists is an irreverent take on the list book genre from two published humor writers known for their bite. It's a compendium with a scope as broad as the odd tastes of the authors, with topics as varied as Top 5 People/Animal Marriages, to etiquette tips for bus riding and meeting the Queen. (It's very unlikely that you'll do both at once).
