“I’m huge on Twitter.”
—An ancient proverb that means
Lonely in real life.
—JOEL KIM BOOSTER

Jokes and haikus have a common goal: to pack the greatest punch in the most succinct way possible. In Eating Salad Drunk, today's biggest names in comedy come together to do just that, with hilarious, poignant, and (sometimes) dirty haikus about living and coping in our modern "burnout age." Contributors include Jerry Seinfeld, Michael Ian Black, Aubrey Plaza, Margaret Cho, Maria Bamford, Ray Romano, Aparna Nancherla, Ziwe Fumudoh, Chris Gethard, Sasheer Zamata, Colin Mochrie, Zach Woods, and many more! Curated by Gabe Henry, author and manager of the popular Brooklyn comedy venue Littlefield, Eating Salad Drunk's topics include:

-Modern Romance
-Friends & Family
-Screentime
-Nature Calls
-Food
-Entertainment
-The Struggle is Real
-Words of Wisdom, and
-Self Love & Loathing

The book also includes 50 super-relatable black and white drawings by New Yorker cartoonist Emily Flake, as well as a foreword by stand-up comedian and actor Aparna Nancherla (Crashing, BoJack Horseman, Inside Amy Schumer).

Eating Salad Drunk is the perfect gift for any fan of humor as an escape from our dystopian present.
