Adult Coloring Books first became popular when psychologists found that coloring was a way for people to get out of their own heads and relax. They became very popular about 3 years ago and although the mega craze has subsided a bit, there are still lots of coloring book addicts like me enjoying the hobby. Funny coloring books also help with relieving stress as laughing, chuckling and smiling also have amazing health benefits.
Funny Books For Guys & Gals
This book is perfect for that Introvert on your gift list or for yourself if you’d rather play with others, alone… and in your own home. I gifted this to my daughter who has to be with people all day for her job so when she’s not at work she really needs her alone time. So many perfect sayings in this book for you to color in while you are hanging out with your favorite person in the world. I posted a flip through video on my Instagram & Youtube channels. If you aren’t following yet you should be! I post quick flip throughs of coloring books on a regular basis so you can see what’s inside!
You’ve seen the memes on Facebook! What a great idea.

If you love your job and want to spend nights and weekends hanging out with your boss then this book is not for you. This is for the rest of us. The ones who drag their unwilling bodies through day after day of soul-sucking life-draining work. On the verge of a breakdown? So is Fred. He’s had enough. There is only so much one man can take and he can’t take any more. Live vicariously through Fred as he acts out his fantasies of killing his boss. (10 illustrations to color +1 bonus page). Stabbings, strangulation, cannibalism, magic tricks gone wrong, you name it Fred’s done it. Let the stress melt away as you carefully color in the murderous acts. You can’t really kill your boss and now you don’t have to. Fred does it for you!

Review from Cantrinka says There are over 120 pages of creative “activities.” The following is just a sampling of what is between the covers:
- draw a Picasso-style portrait of a friend
- practice making ‘regrettable’ tattoos
- renderings of famous paintings are left partially unfinished…you finish them off
- design your own beer labels
- wino bingo
- pickup line survival guide
- draw aliens on a row of urinals
- images of various types of drinks…you have to draw someone bathing, drowning, etc. in the drink
- a few coloring projects including some that are extremely intricate
“I bought this activity book for my son to gift to one of his college buddies, a fellow who loves his beer and also likes to doodle. Since the pages of the book are somewhat heavy-weight, markers can be used and shouldn’t bleed through.”
- Unicorns are Jerks
- Dinosaurs With Jobs: a coloring book celebrating our old-school co-workers.

This book is filled with clever drawings of things that happen at your workplace and would be perfect to keep tucked in your desk drawer to color and cheer up an office mate or post on the break room wall.

I love to use gel pens in books that have skinny spaces to color in, particularly words. Glitter gel pens are my favorite! You can read about which ones are preferred by colorists here.
