Comedian Jim Gaffigan (also known as The Palest Man Alive) has made us laugh with his musings on fatherhood, fast food, Hot Pockets, and manatees, among other concerns. Now he’s finally putting his funny observations on parenting five children in a book, Dad Is Fat, coming May 7, 2013. The book will offer Gaffigan’s take on toddlers’ communication skills (“they always sound like they have traveled by horseback for hours to deliver important news”), to the eating habits of four-year-olds (“there is no difference between a four year old eating a taco and throwing a taco on the floor”). Gaffigan said in a press release, “I’m not sure if it’s a memoir, a confession, an apology, or a cry for help, but I’m excited to write about things I just touch on in my stand-up act.”

Are you excited for May 7? Will you read the whole thing in Gaffigan’s high-pitched voice?
