    Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs: A Low Culture Manifesto by Chuck Klosterman is a brilliant pop culture essay. It's funny, intelligent, insightful...

    Fargo Rock City by Chuck Klosterman is a heavy metal essay, and it's just as entertaining as Cocoa Puff, and made me assign a Jack Factor to all my CDs. It's just great.

    Killing Yourself to Live: 85% of a True Story also by Chuck. It's a highly amusing road trip diary, basically. To quote the coolest fifth-grader I never interviewed, "Chuck Klosterman rules ass."

    The Walking Dead - not the zombie graphic novel, but Craig Roberts' memoir of his service during the Vietnam War. Funniest war story you'll ever read.

    - Non Campus Mentis - Can't remember the author, but a collection of stupid and/or bizarre answers turned in by actual college students on exams (mostly in the humanities).
    - Brain Droppings, Napalm & Silly Putty and When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops?, all by George Carlin
    - Real Ultimate Power by Robert Hamburger, though the ending is a little sad
    - The Complete Asshole's Guide to Handling Chicks
    - Any of the collections from The Onion
    - The Cunning Linguist by Richard Lederer - Any of his other books are also fairly good
    - Any Get Fuzzy collection
    - Any Calvin and Hobbes collection
    - Any of Dennis Miller's collections of rants, although many of the references are a little dated

    Big Trouble by Dave Barry. Heck, anything by Dave Barry, Christopher Moore, Carl Hiaasen, Douglas Adams, or Harry Harrison.
