The Onion Book of Known Knowledge is packed with tongue-in-cheek observations and ideas and is a fun encyclopedia containing "the total sum of mankind's knowledge". From a definition of Congress as a "National legislative body of the U.S. government that had such amazing potential, damn it" to a description of Walt Disney as an "American film producer, writer, animator, voice actor and entertainer who was renowned for his childlike enthusiasm for money", this is crammed with fun observations that will delight any with a sense of criticism and humor.
