Why Grizzly Bears Should Wear Underpants is the second variety comic collection and fourth book from the comedic mastermind behind TheOatmeal.com, Matthew Inman. Classics from the website, including "Dear Sriracha Rooster Sauce," "What It Means When You Say Literally," and "What We Should Have Been Taught in Our Senior Year of High School," are featured alongside never-before-seen works of epic hilarity that will delight veteran and newbie Oatmeal fans alike.

Matthew Inman's first collection of The Oatmeal.com spent six weeks on the New York Times bestseller list and sold 200,000 copies. This pivotal and influential comic collection titled 5 Very Good Reasons to Punch a Dolphin in the Mouth introduced Samurai sword-wielding kittens and informed us on how to tell if a velociraptor is having pre-marital sex. Matthew's cat-themed collection How to Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill You is a #1 New York Times bestseller with more than half a million copies in print. Now with Why Grizzly Bears Should Wear Underpants , Inman offers a delicious, tantalizing follow-up featuring all new material that has been posted on the site since the publication of the first book plus never-before-seen comics that have not appeared anywhere. As with every Oatmeal collection, there is a pull-out poster at the back of the book.

In this second collection of over 50 comics, you'll be treated to the hilarity of "The Crap We Put Up with Getting On and Off an Airplane," "Why Captain Higgins Is My Favorite Parasitic Flatworm," "This Is How I Feel about Buying Apps," "6 Things You Really Don't Need to Take a Photo of," and much more. Along with lambasting the latest culture crazes, Inman serves up recurrent themes such as foodstuffs, holidays, e-mail, as well as technological, news-of-the-day, and his snarky yet informative comics on grammar and usage. Online and in print, The Oatmeal delivers brilliant, irreverent comic hilarity.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Divided between saucy, graphically gripping panels that subtly distill the profoundly silly aspects of daily life (e.g., time spent using Tupperware) and highly constructed, visually arresting narratives that focus on hot-button themes like relationships, high school, and dreams, this collection is a rewarding gem of politically incorrect edginess. Cartoonist Matt Inman, aka "the Oatmeal," uses the deliberately crude MS Paint-inspired style of webcomics and pairs it with razor-wire insights about Apple, airline travel, cooking at home, and other facets of modern life. Inman brings a polished, witty and deeply pessimistic outlook to his comics. Whether he's is a terminally wounded humanist or a hardcore nihilist, we may never know, but the utter relevance and poignancy of these often deceptively anecdotal funnies makes Inman a Gary Larsen for the iPad generation.
