Your Disgusting Head

I've been sick lately, and unable to think about much less than my sinus-infected, puss-filled head (ugh) - so, to distract me, I pulled out my copy of Your Disgusting Head, ostensibly by Dr. and Mr. Doris Haggis-on-Whey, but really by Dave Eggers et McSweeney's crew.

Starting with the rather gorgeous cover design (Acclaimed worldwide and translated into several languages, including Texan), it's full of hilarious text and amusing illustrations. Chapters like Where Does all the Snot Come From and How to Choose the Best Tongue for You (subheading: Caring for Your New Tongue) are the sort of things you'll find inside, hopefully, effectively distracting you from your own disgusting head for a while.
