  1. I read this book last summer and it was hilarious! I had just moved out of NYC to the suburbs with my 2 kids because I couldn’t deal with raising them in the city anymore. Gaffigan sure made me feel like a wuss in that respect! I have no idea how he managed 5 kids in an NYC apartment!

  2. I couldn’t get over the couple that thought it was a good idea to bring a baby to the Grand Canyon and then was upset that, you know, folks wanted to look at the Grand Canyon at the Grand Canyon.
