Five funny books about fatherhood

The editors of the B&N Reads blog tagged five hilarious books about fatherhood, including:
Dad is Fat, by Jim Gaffigan

Jim Gaffigan and his wife went and had five young children in a two-bedroom apartment in Manhattan, and somehow he lived not only to tell the tale, but to sit down and write a book about it. And what a book—Dad is Fat is a hilarious, insightful, and yes, heart-warming look at parenting from the perspective of a comedian and family man who has been in the trenches of childrearing. Best of all, Gaffigan manages to be funny while keeping it clean—and when it comes to experiences we share with parents, keeping things g-rated is always an added bonus.
Read about another book on the list.

Dad is Fat is among Molly Schoemann-McCann's seven "funny books that funny dads of all stripes will appreciate" and Whitney Collins's six most honest, least insulting parenting books.
