Doogie Horner
Everything Explained Through Flowcharts



According to book designer and stand-up comic Doogie Horner (The Ministry of Secret Jokes) everything—absolutely everything—in the seemingly random universe can be connected, charted, comprehended, and ultimately conquered. Everything Explained through Flowcharts is your one-stop decision-making handbook, packed with meticulous diagrams that will illuminate life’s greatest mysteries—from your afterlife options to the best alien pick-up lines to the smoothest route to world domination. Distinctive and ingenious, Everything Explained through Flowcharts is the only book currently on the market that enables you to trace the labyrinthine connections that order the universe while causing eye strain in seniors.

Everything Explained Through Flowcharts is packed with meticulously designed charts that trace the labyrinthine connections that order the universe, illuminate life's great mysteries, and cause eye strain in senior citizens. Swiss scientists at the prestigious University of Helsinki have said that Everything Explained Through Flowcharts is the closest thing there is to a working unified field theory, and have gone on to claim that they aren't Swiss, aren't scientists, and aren't sure whether or not Helsinki is in Switzerland. And yet the Swiss consulate has not denied that this book contains more than two hundred illustrations, forty mammoth charts, and innumerable supporting graphs and essays, including:

* An illustrated matrix of WWF Finishing Moves
* Heavy metal band names taxonomy
* The noble art of zeppelin warfare demystified
* How to win any argument
* Tragedy to comedy conversion chart for comedians
* A creepy drawing of a baby skeleton
* How to tell if you're an evil twin
