BossypantsBossypants by Tina Fey

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Tina Fey is funny. She's about the most realistically funny woman on TV (and now print). When I say realistic, she's not the fake-make-stupid-jokes-no-one-gets funny. Her humor is relatable to everyday life and I get it!

Tina Fey goes on some tangents about improv and how to properly do said improv and I skimmed that chapter as I have no interest in that topic. I felt a little awkward at her liberal views but in the end, I absolutely appreciated every word and thought on her personal and political views. (She's just so darn relatable!)

Mostly I laughed my butt off. Her self-deprecating and sometimes in-your-face humor is so in line with what I think about myself and perhaps other women do too. She claims her hips " look like somebody wrapped Pillsbury dough around a case of soda". She rages about the "Teat Nazis", the successful breast feeding moms who make you feel bad for failing she tells it like it is. She swears like a sailor but is unable to confront her daughters babysitter about cutting her nails to short. She struggles with being a working mom and wondering if she should have the second baby.

I don't think there is a person out there who wouldn't laugh at her antics, whatever your political background! And she does address the Sarah Palin sketches and how her parents are Republicans. Great stuff.
