Book Description

Aug. 1 2011
Laugh, cry, tear your hair out--we've all had that moment when confronted with the crap stored at our parents' houses: tacky tchotkes and bizarre pieces of furniture hoarded for decades. Now, laugh at them all year long with comedian Joel Dovev's compilation of reader-submitted content and photos from his wildly popular web site. In this 12-month calendar, find dozens of images of the weirdest crap humans have ever collected anointed with silly and snarky captions that underline each object's absurdity. Who knew a secret stash of airplane vests could be so funny?!

5.0 out of 5 stars Funnier than your last garage sale! Sept. 1 2011
By Caitlin D. Jones - Published on
Being the child of two crap-keepers, this book is close to home and hysterical! A fun way to think that thousands of people are really laughing with you when they see the embarrassing kitsch your parents proudly display around the house. This one's definitely going on the coffee table next to my cow-shaped creamer!

5.0 out of 5 stars "Do You Know Why This Clown Is Smiling And Rubbing His Belly?" Sept. 29 2011
By Robert I. Hedges - Published on
Format:Calendar|Verified Purchase
Joel Dovev has created something out of nothing. The something is a laugh-out-loud funny calendar (and concept) and the nothing is...well...not literally nothing, but as close as you can get in the physical realm. Many of us have had the experience of finding otherworldly tchotchkes and trinkets in our parent's houses, but Dovev saw the comic potential like nobody before him and put on a full-fledged exhibition online, in book form, and now as a calendar.

I am extremely picky about wall calendars, but as soon as I found out this was available I ordered it, and what a great decision that proved to be. The illustrations range from the merely strange to the totally surreal, while the captions are more than up to the challenge of commentary on the detritus plaguing countless attics, basements, and, let's face it, prominent display areas in homes across the country.

This is a great choice for a 2012 calendar, particularly for those who have been forced to sort through their parent's belongings.

Now for the answer to the question I posed in the title: of course the clown is smiling "because he just ate a box of puppies." As if that wasn't self-evident!

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Funny. :-( Nov. 3 2012
By Moxie Maven - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this for my husband with high hopes that it would be amusing and entertaining. It's not. At all. It was a definite waste of money. I rarely write bad reviews. I've been lucky with my purchases and have relied heavily on customer reviews. I don't want anyone else to waste their $ on this.

Not very politically correct. Not for those who take offence easily but a crack up of a book, I even bought one as a gift for some one, Great for a belly laugh.
