1. This coloring book exposes unicorns for what they really are: majestic, but utterly rude creatures who eat your leftovers.

...without permission.

Promising review: "This coloring book saved my business. Our firm was on the verge of hiring a unicorn as our new public relations rep. At first, it seemed like a dream come true, what with his magical rainbow mane and shimmering eyes. After reading this book, we decided to do a little more digging on our potential new hire — and I'm so glad we did! This guy turned out to be a notorious ringleader in a human trafficking scandal! Bad news folks! He was using his irresistible horn to lure young children away into a life of depravity and abuse! We owe everything to this important publication. It's really so much more than a coloring book, it's a public service announcement. Don't trust unicorns! Period!" —C. Boustead

Promising review: "This book is a great litmus test. Show this book to someone, and see if they have the sagacity and intelligence to appreciate the stoic humor that this book presents.

I made a wrong turn and ended up in an alleyway surrounded by bottlenose dolphins. They stole my Super Mario Brothers wallet that contained $3.49 and a coupon for a free cheeseburger and large Coca-Cola product. I will never be able to forget the feeling of those moist flippers slapping me around. I was only able to wrestle myself free by punching one of them in the blowhole. I escaped while they were distracted and was able to make it home without further harm. For this, I have my own personal sixth reason to punch a dolphin in the mouth; sweet, sweet revenge." —Poisonous Monkey

Get it from Amazon for $11.26.

20. Strangers Have The Best Candy will make any parent clench their fists and begin to weep.


Promising review: "Everyone has heard the warning about taking candy from strangers: Don’t do it. Strangers can be weird, devious, and even downright dangerous. But is that true for all strangers? Of course not. After all, a person is only a stranger to us simply because we don’t know them; at least not yet. But what if we looked at 'strangers' as people who have the ability to transform, enlighten, and even entertain us? That is what's at the heart of Margaret Schulte’s book. When you view the lives, experiences, and stories of the people you meet every day as though it were candy, you can begin to interact with other people in an entirely new and wonderful way." —Susan Barton

Get it from Amazon for $13.49.

21. This collection contains the weirdest, creepiest, crappiest examples of taxidermy. Ever.

Get it from Amazon for $9.46.

22. F in Exams will make you feel better about all the tests, SATs, ACTs, etc. that you didn't ace.

Q: What is the highest-frequency noise that a human can register?

A: Mariah Carey.

Promising review: "I couldn't stop laughing at the pure, simple perspective through which we once saw the world; this book captures the innocence and creativity of youth. It is a book every adult should read, traveling back to the time of textbooks and test anxiety, and feeling just a bit empathetic for (and a little jealous of) our children and grandchildren going through it now. A great book to share." —Jodi

Get it from Amazon for $9.51.

23. Finally, this book. I am uncomfortable.
