Daniel Wyatt from Minneapolis has a pressing question about becoming a ward of the state. Sophie from Utah needs advice about eating a peach in public. Chris from San Francisco asks if there is a type of meat that shouldn’t be boiled, and Sally from Chicago wonders what it means when a man tells her she looks like a beautiful picnic table.

The letters compiled in this comical question-and-answer book contain questions about a variety of topics including sex, relationships, tattoos, drugs, diet, pets, and money. Some of the advice offered in response is crude (curse words and rude comments), a few are clever, but none are to be taken seriously.

Director and writer Adam McKay advises a man worried about a global grain shortage to hoard bread, and Rainn Wilson (actor from The Office) tells a woman to go ahead and eat the mushroom growing out of her carpet. Recognized names (Judd Apatow, Michael Cera, Ed Helms, and Amy Sedaris) will help sell this book, but it’s not a good read for those who are easily offended.
