In Dad is Fat, stand-up comedian Jim Gaffigan, who's best known for his legendary riffs on Hot Pockets, bacon, manatees, and McDonald's, expresses all the joys and horrors of life with five young children--everything from cousins (-celebrities for little kids-) to toddlers' communication skills (-they always sound like they have traveled by horseback for hours to deliver important news-), to the eating habits of four year olds (-there is no difference between a four year old eating a taco and throwing a taco on the floor-). Dad is Fat is sharply observed, explosively funny, and a cry for help from a man who has realized he and his wife are outnumbered in their own home.
