Hyperbole and a Half
Hyperbole and a Half is a combination of web comic and blog written by Allie Brosh - the book is a mix of older blog posts and new essays, all crudely illustrated (which gives them their charm) and written either with her special sense of humor or brutal honestly.
The subjects range from funny little adventures like the cake incident and moving with 2 dogs to a 2 part comic about depression posted after months when Allie stopped writing and fans started worrying. Her depression posts are said to be a great representation of how depression works and they have been highly acclaimed all over the web.
Allie is responsible for creating some of what later turned into memes:
And her post on pain faces is absolutely hilarious:
0: Hi. I am not experiencing any pain at all. I don't know why I'm even here.
1: I am completely unsure whether I am experiencing pain or itching or maybe I just have a bad taste in my mouth.
2: I probably just need a Band Aid.
3: This is distressing. I don't want this to be happening to me at all.
4: My pain is not fucking around.
5: Why is this happening to me??
6: Ow. Okay, my pain is super legit now.
7: I see Jesus coming for me and I'm scared.
8: I am experiencing a disturbing amount of pain. I might actually be dying. Please help.
9: I am almost definitely dying.
10: I am actively being mauled by a bear.
11: Blood is going to explode out of my face at any moment.
Too Serious For Numbers: You probably have ebola. It appears that you may also be suffering from Stigmata and/or pinkeye.
So get this book for a loved one. It's a gem and a wonder, funny and heartbreaking and fit for a gift for pretty much anyone older than 15 (some strong language).
