It came as a complete surprise to me that the folks over at The Daily Show have a followup to America: The Book on shelves. Thankfully, Earth: The Book is just as irreverantly funny as its predecessor. Science geekery, politics and pop-culture are all perfectly blending into this laugh-out-loud compilation.
This is required bathroom reading at its best.
And before anyone thinks this is a cop-out of a new thing, please bear in mind that I’m still a little laid up from that surgery on Friday. Believe me, I’d love to be able to climb the CN tower or ride a mechanical bull right now. As it is, the next few days have the distinct possibility of being pretty pedestrian.
