29. Ant Farm and Other Desperate Situations by Simon Rich

I thought this was hysterical. It's a collection of 2 - 3 page pieces by what I am assuming is a Daily Show writer (since John Stewart calls the book "hilarious" on the cover.)

Here is a very short example. If you like this, you will probably like the entire book:

"IF LIFE WERE LIKE MIDDLE SCHOOL

JUDGE: In all my years on the bench, I have never seen a more despicable criminal. You robbed, assaulted, and tortured the victim simply for the thrill of it. Do you have anything to say in your defense before I sentence you?

CRIMINAL: Nope.

JUDGE: In that case, I hereby sentence you to forty years in a maximum security prison. I also sentence the victim to forty years in prison.

VICTIM: Wait -what? That doesn't make any sense! He attacked me!

JUDGE: I don't care who started it. "

Recommended.
