In his riotous debut collection, Ant Farm, Simon Rich found humor in some of life's most desperate situations. Now this former editor of The Harvard Lampoon and current writer for Saturday Night Live has returned to mine more comedy from our hopelessly terrifying world.

In the nostalgic opening chapter, Rich recalls his fear of the Tooth Fairy ("Is there a face fairy?") and his initial reaction to the “Got-your-nose” game (“Please just kill me. Better to die than to live the rest of my life as a monster"). He goes on to present Count Dracula's desperate profile ("I am normal human looking for human woman to come to castle. I am normal, regular human”). Later, he gets inside the heads of two firehouse Dalmatians who can't understand their masters’ compulsion to drive off to horrible fires every day. And in the final chapter, he tackles some of life's biggest questions: Does God really have a plan for us? Yes, it turns out. Now if only He could remember what it was. . . .

Praise for Simon Rich's Ant Farm

"Ant Farm has an imaginative power that can trigger snort-fests. . . . Ferociously creative, this book is for readers craving both smart humor and belly laughs."
-People (four stars)

"Savagely funny.”
–The New York Times

"Hilarious. Open this book anywhere, begin reading, and you will laugh."
-Jon Stewart

Ant Farm is what all humor books should be: full of brief, high-concept musings that you wish you'd thought of yourself."
-Time Out New York

"A satirical salmagundi that bites back . . . Imaginative premises abound. . . . As unpredictable as YouTube, as in your face as MySpace."
-Publishers Weekly
