To all those who’ve written me saying they thought they were the only ones looking for a new BFF, I present to you this hilarious-if-a-bit-morbid kids’ book for grown-ups (the best kind of book, if you ask me). See! You are not alone.
Take note: If you’re reading this in an email or feed you may need to click through to see the fun animation. Also, this mini-excerpt has become the most shared post on Tumblr of all time. Everybody loves friends—dead or alive!
Let me share with you the official Amazon product description: “If you’re a dinosaur, all of your friends are dead. If you’re a pirate, all of your friends have scurvy. If you’re a tree, all of your friends are end tables. Each page of this laugh-out-loud illustrated humor book showcases the downside of being everything from a clown to a cassette tape to a zombie. From the sock whose only friends have gone missing to the houseplant whose friends are being slowly killed by irresponsible plant owners (like you), All My Friends Are Dead presents a delightful primer for laughing at the inevitable.”
See, looking for new friends is universal. And not always so serious. Sometimes we just need to laugh at ourselves. When you’re awkwardly and platonically hitting on other girls day after day, what other choice do you have? And, really, a friend with no sense of humor is no friend at all.
