An encyclopedia filled with the sum total of mankind's knowledge for the world's final generation of book readers, from America's Finest News Source.
In a world where the media is dominated by superficiality and mediocrity, we have come to thrive on information from second-rate sources such as unreliable websites, cable TV, and your dad. But now, there's hope: perfectly timed for a generation rapidly abandoning print reference books, The Onion, bastion of unbiased, reliable, and definitive news, has produced an encyclopedia of all man's known knowledge.Replete with short text entries, colorful graphics, illustrations, and diagrams, THE ONION BOOK OF KNOWN KNOWLEDGE will finally explain why old people hate music, the connection between myths and democracy and The Sex Pistols and the Queen of England, and why Craig T. Nelson's empire is worth over $60 million dollars. There will be references to running gags in The Onion universe that will please longtime fans (such as references to Onion columnist Herbert Kornfeld under an entry for workplace violence); and historical humor à la Our Dumb Century.While never blinking in its scholarly, self-important presentation, THE ONION BOOK OF KNOWN KNOWLEDGE will feature authoritative explanations of only those subjects America's Finest News Source deems to be true, useful, and important.
A devastatingly important encyclopedia from America's Finest News Source that contains the sum total of mankind's knowledge and is the very last book that will ever be printed.
Every week, three million readers turn to the world's most popular news organization for a much-needed dose of Onion news and entertainment coverage. In a history spanning twenty-two years, seven popular books, and 19 Webby Awards, The Onion has attracted legions of loyal fans drawn to its fearless reporting and scathing commentary on world events, human behavior, and journalistic convention.
Praise for OUR DUMB CENTURY: 'An especially clever lampoon of American ignorance.' - New York Magazine - 'This atlas finds ways to ridicule countries around the world....Each dig is more hilarious--and less politically correct--than the last.' - Wired - 'Irreverent and indispensable, Our Dumb World presents hokey, hilarious illustrated flag designs and dictator fashions as sidesplitting sidebars.' - Elle - 'Genius...the most consistently hilarious spot on the flogged dead horse of American comedy.' - Esquire - 'Makes its readers teary-eyed with laughter...The Onion gleefully offends, armed with a ... combination of puerility and intelligence.' - Washington Post
