I search for a lot of very different types of books on Amazon because of my job. Odd things pop up in my recommendations now and then, and sometimes I click on them out of curiosity. I did just that the other day, when The Big Coloring Book of Vaginas popped up on my screen. The cover wasn’t overly alarming (no more than the average Georgia O’Keefe painting), and I was not quite prepared for what I found when I got there. After a few moments of both shock and amusement, I got brave and checked out the similar titles that were listed below, in the “Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought…” section. Here are a few of the highlights, along with their descriptions as seen on Amazon:


Two veterans of offbeat Internet humor hilariously combine the mindless fun of children’s coloring books with the mind-numbing realities of modern adult life

With over 200 comedy videos and 72 million Youtube views to their credit, Ryan Hunter and Taige Jensen know how to make people laugh. Their YouTube video, “Hipster Olympics” racked up nearly three million hits and quickly attained worldwide cult status, which led to opportunities to create original content for Comedy Central, MTV, College Humor,, the Huffington Post and Slate. Now, the duo put their prolific creative talents to work in Coloring for Grown-Ups. The artwork resembles that of a children’s activity book, while actually offering an ironic look at the stereotypes, habits, and challenges of modern adulthood. Coloring for Grown-Ups includes more than 50 fun activities, such as:
* 6 Steps for Compromising Your Integrity and Goals!
* “Hipster or Homeless?”
* Color the Potential Terrorists!
* Draw the person you thought you’d grow up to be before you abandoned all your hopes and dreams!

Darkly humorous–and fun for any occasion –Coloring for Grown-Ups is the perfect stocking stuffer for reluctant adults of any age.
