    A celebration of humanity’s feline fixation from the author of Dogtology.   Does your cat own you? What has caused us to enthrone cats as the most popular pet on the planet? Why do we devote so much of our time and income to grooming, feeding, coddling, photographing, praising, providing laps for, and “entertaining” our cats? If an anthropologist from outer space were to study our civilization objectively, would she not conclude that our devotion to Cat amounted to nothing less than a full-blown religion? Would she be wrong?   Catakism, the belief system, is rooted in a bold premise: namely, that felines are humanity’s biological and spiritual masters. By allowing Man to handle all of Her low-level needs, Cat is free to do the higher-level spiritual work that Man has no time for, such as meditating seventeen hours a day, teleporting into locked rooms and cabinets, communing with disembodied spirits, and reeducating humanity on the true purpose of boxes, bags, and keyboards.   “Cat servants—this book is all about you and your devotion to all things feline. Think I’m overdoing it? I have two words. Cat videos . . . How do I worship at the altar of Cat? This book helps me count the ways.” —Dear Author

    Have you ever noticed when you’re out to dinner and your dad takes it upon himself to antagonize your server with a lame joke?

    This comedic canon compiles more than four hundred of the best pseudo-witty quips so that dads can hone their craft and ensure maximum eye rolling. Included within are jokes such as:“Last night, I had a dream that I was a muffler. I woke up exhausted.”“How many apples grow on a tree? All of them.”“What's the difference between ignorance and apathy? I don't know and I don't care.”“What do lawyers wear to court? Lawsuits!”And many other gut-busting groaners for your amusement 
     
    With Dad Jokes, give your dad the gift of becoming the ultimate jokester and the master of all things punny—or just keep it for yourself.
