An Entertainment Weekly “Must List” choice, this devilish collection of cartoons pokes fun at the morals, ethics and rationalizations of contemporary society. “It doesn’t count if it’s in a salad,” the snake tells Eve as she holds a bowl of lettuce and apple slices. “What’s our policy on honesty?” an executive on speaker phone asks.

A moral compass that always points south, the author notes, “can help you find your way as surely as one that points the other way.” And can help you laugh, too.
