Who knew that owls and hangovers went together as well as rum and coke? The Hungover Owls Tumblr took the Internet by storm as journalist J. Patrick Brown united the two for the first time. Brown’s hilarious, crude, and sometimes not-safe-for-work captions, combined with photos of owls squinting, gawking, snuggling, and sleeping make the perfect partnership. This book includes never-before-seen owl facts, parables, and a field guide for recognizing your very own hungover owl. With captions like “Ugh. The good weather only makes it so much worse” and ”On a scale from zero to hungover, I am dead,” drinkers everywhere will recognize their own forgotten pain and delight in its humor.
