When syndicated newspaper columnist Bombeck compares gorillas' show-off behavior to the attention-getting ploys of Madonna, Howard Stern, Roseanne and other "professional exhibitionists," one feels she may be onto something. Although many of these 38 lighthearted pieces, which seek out loose parallels between Homo sapiens and the rest of the animal kingdom, don't click, those that do are irreverent, funny and sassy, like her put-down of the men's movement or her survey of sex in the 1990s. There are several awful groaners here, as when the bestselling humorist leaps from the cockroach's eons-old longevity to the "longevity" of Christmas fruitcake. A lot of her animal-based observations on humans' mating and courtship habits, emotional makeup and struggle for survival are superficial. Nevertheless, fans will enjoy Bombeck's wry comments on toilet-training toddlers; men's superiority complex about driving a car; women's dieting and compulsion to hoard things; and how to encourage creative play in children

Classic Erma Bombeck humor! I hadn't read this one before and it was like an unexpected visit back with her. The woman LIVED and she could sure write about it.

HBw/dj, Bombeck writes about how close humans & animals are without even realizing it. She says she's seen every animal on these pages in Loehmann's community dressing room. She has been caught in a killer swarm of bargain hunters who hurt you to get an item with an "additional 20% off ticket price"...each chapter begins with a neat definition of an animal..funny woman, funny book

I love Erma's sense of humor. Even though the book is older, her material is still funny and relevant. The world of humor is sadder because of her absence.
