The Bibliophile's Guide to the Oatmeal

If you haven't heard of The Oatmeal despite being online all these years, I'm surprised... and also slightly jealous of you.

Prepare to be dazzled by Matthew Inman's magnificent creations peppered with wisdom and wit in equal measure.


For over 10 years, Matthew has been delighting and educating netizens worldwide on his website

Over the course of time, I will be updating my favorites in this post for easy access for everyone (but mostly myself).

Enjoy :)
