Michael Ian Black’s Taco Party

I’m not about to turn this into a book review website, but I will quickly say that Michael Ian Black’s My Custom Van and 50 Other Mind-Blowing Essays that Will Blow Your Mind All Over Your Face is, without a doubt, one of the funniest books I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading.  One essay in particular, entitled Taco Party, was so funny that I actually had to put the book down I was laughing so hard.  This has never happened.  I later found out that Black read this essay on several stops of the official book tour.  The thought of hearing him read this aloud is one thing, but imagining him reading this in a quiet bookstore or library with old ladies and kids around is even better.

Yesterday the publisher of the book, Simon and Schuster, uploaded a video of Black reading Taco Party, and I must say that it’s simply not to be missed.  I won’t tell you what it’s about, but I would recommend turning your speakers all the way up, especially if you’re at work or church.
