Have you ever had one of those moments, when something so horribly awkward and embarrassing happens, you just want to crawl in a hole and die? Well, you’re not alone. This book is full of those moments. And as terrible as they may be when they happen to you, they’re pretty funny when they happen to someone else. “A very entertaining little book. Makes a great travel companion or bathroom reader.” “A delightful guilty pleasure.” “These stories of utter embarrassment have universal appeal, because we have all been in one or more of these situations at one point or another in our lives.” “The human experience, sliced and diced into microscopic short stories and cartoons that will make you laugh out loud.” “Why do we like to laugh at other people’s misfortune? Who knows? But Germans even have a word for it: Schadenfreude.”
