    The Deleted E-Mails of Hillary Clinton

    Once news broke that HRC used a personal e-mail account during her time as Secretary of State, instead of a government issued one, all hell broke loose. Conspiracy theories saturated the airwaves and the State department was forced to release thousands of Hillary’s e-mails to the public—but what happened to the deeply private and personal emails discarded by HRC staffers before being handed over to State? Thanks to author John Moe, the answer lies in his laugh-out-loud parody of the presidential candidate’s unseen e-mail archive. This quick and easy read is comedy gold from start to finish. Moe flawlessly satirizes Clinton and humorously depicts her relationships with politicians, and celebrities such as Vladimir Putin, Oprah, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Meryl Streep, Huma Abedin, and even Beyoncé. On her journey from mother-of-the-bride to commandress-in-chief, we get a sneak peek into her personal relationships with Bill and Chelsea, her thoughts on Olivia Pope, and her strategies on pantsuit haggling, all chronicled via e-mail. This book is the perfect gag gift for the political junkie in your life—Democrat or otherwise.

    Poorly Drawn Lines

    Warning! If you intend to purchase this as a gift, there is a very real chance you will find yourself reading it instead of wrapping it up. At which point you can either admit you are now that person giving used goods as gifts, or just make a joke that this is all part of “the sickest gift.” And before you ask, no, being a longtime reader of the hilarious webcomic is not a requirement for enjoyment.

A perfect gift for those who need a little levity in their toddler-chasing lives.

    Deep Dark Fears

    L.A.-based cartoonist Fran Krause started his popular web comic via Tumblr when he began drawing all of his irrational fears one day—then people started sending him their fears, which he also committed to paper. This comic book of sorts illuminates our shared human condition—fearing things we cannot control—while also bringing the laughs. Our favorite? “Sometimes, I feel like people are reading my mind, so I think of something funny. That way, if I hear anyone laugh, I KNOW.”
