Whether a parent or not, you'll still find Dad is Fat hilarious. I wisely opted to listen to the audiobook as it is read by Gaffigan himself, and really the only way it should be read. He had me laughing even before he started reciting the text! Gaffigan has five kids. All under the age of eight. Living in a two bedroom apartment in New York City. The daily goings-on in that apartment alone have to be ridiculous and with Gaffigan's voice and insight it's all the better. Highly amusing!
