This review is from: The Onion Book of Known Knowledge: A Definitive Encyclopaedia Of Existing Information (Hardcover)
Wow… The Onion… as usual… leaves no group untouched. If you are easily offended you will NOT be happy with this book! However, if you can see this book for what it is… humor (and a great deal of it very off-color)… you will love it. If you are familiar with the Onion online, then you’ll know exactly what to expect. If you buy it, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did, but be warned… there are no taboos in terms of this book. Thanks for taking the time to read my review.

In November 2012 The Onion got People’s Daily Online (a Chinese news outlet) to “pick up” its feature on Kim Jong Un – the “sexiest man alive for 2012” – complete with 55 photographs of that sexy beast.
I’ll offer a warning, though. Amazon has kindly offered twenty-odd pages from the beginning of this book. I find the humor a little too broad to pay Amazon’s asking price.
