Cynical Perspective Encyclopedias
The Onion Book is Full of Humorous Jabs at Life

{SummaryTitle}

Punchy and observant, The Onion Book of Known Knowledge: A Definitive Encyclopaedia Of Existing Information relays an extremist point of view of the world as we think we know it.

Generously doused with humor and wit, the book is structured just like a classic encyclopedia and includes colorful pictures on every page illustrating the truth of the articles. Some topics are explored in depth, such as global warming predictions which concludes with the assurance that we are all helplessly doomed. Other, such as the article on Jane Goodall, contain a single succinct phrase, “Goodall, Jane(b. Apr. 3, 1934), British primatologist who probably let a couple of chimps get to second base.”

The Onion Book of Known Knowledge should be on Oprah’s book list.
