Perhaps the single greatest feeling in the world -- better than winning the lottery, better than seeing your baby being born, better than having fresh batteries in the TV remote -- is waking up to find out you're in the latest Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal comic.

Even better? There's a new SMBC book

! I haven't read it yet, because Zach hasn't sent me a free copy in exchange for relentlessly shilling his stuff here on the blog, but I assume it's at least mildly diverting. Look, SMBC is the funniest science-based web comic done by a geeky ginger who also draws himself shirtless all the time, which, let's face it, is a niche that's nearly saturated (assuming Rupert Grint doesn't start one as well). His first book, "Save Yourself, Mammal!"

is really funny, and this new one is a collection of comics hand-picked by Zach, so it'll be the best thing you've ever read, or Zach will send you a dozen long-stem roses flown in from Ecuador*

. [NOTE: Many of Zach's comics deal with topics that are probably NSFW. If you buy the book you may get the vapors if you are inclined thusly. Be ye fairly warned, says I.]

^* Hey, if it's on the Internet, it must be true!
