And then this piece of fried gold happened because I’m the luckiest person ever

Remember last month when I was in Hollywood for some reason?  Well, this was the reason.  It’s a special gift just for you.

A few weeks ago I shared the book trailer that Penguin came up with for me.  This week I’m sharing the book trailer I came up with for you guys.  It’s insane and I can’t stop giggling at it.

Also, I want to lick every single person in this video because they are all terrific sports and are more awesome than enchiladas.

Here’s the link if you can’t see it.

PS.  You can order the book and check out tour dates by clicking here.  Thanks so much to every single one of you for being so supportive and amazing over the last ten years of writing this book.  I can’t believe it comes out in just a couple of weeks.  Insane.

PPS.  A special thank you to Soleil, Mary Lynn, Amanda, Neil, Felicia, Jeri, Bigfoot and Wil.  You are the stuff that dreams are made of.

    I am Holly Waterfall and I think that was great! I think we should all send feathers to Wil Wheaton now. Jenny, for all the math lovers out there you could go on Big Bang and calculate the actual funniness of your book with Sheldon. You could say something like, “It is 2/3 less serious than the Bible, 1 million times funnier than toothpaste Oreos, and not at all as scary as birds”. Then Sheldon could be all seriously writing down coefficients of funny and birds on his whiteboard. Leonard could come in and ask what was going on and of course not understand when you both explained it. After that, the girls could come in and ask if you wanted to go shopping for taxidermied animals and you would of course say yes. Sheldon could ask to come along and Leonard would just shake his head at all of you. I think Victor and Leonard could be good friends.

  94. Oh my sweet leaping Jesus, you got AMANDA FUCKING PALMER in your video. You are the goddess of all that is awesome. And so is she. You can be goddesses of awesome TOGETHER.

  95. Incredible! I have tears in my eyes because of the amazing people in this world. The people who contributed are some of my most favorite people. I’m so glad to see them support you in this. Can’t wait to get my copy. Kisses!

    WilyGuy recently posted Today Was Open Mouth Ankle Surgery Day.

  121. A conspiracy going back over two millennium has recently been uncovered. Documents written in Hebrew, Aramaic, Greek and Coptic show a pattern among Early Christian Bishop and Rabbinical councils to independently redact humous sections of the what is known as the New and Old Testaments. The documents were discovered after and extensive search of Vatican, Orthodox, Coptic and early Synagogues records. It was believed by the early church authorities that a more serious tone was required and that “the funny stuff” was a distraction. One early Bishop’s letter complains that urine odor after the preaching of these passages was just overwhelming the following week.

    Preliminary reviews of these documents by Biblical scholars state that the humor is wide-ranging and translates remarkable well, even the ancient puns. “It is as if it were divinely inspired!” one translator was overheard saying. Another scholar confidentially said she understood why so much had been hidden. There are these stories of Jesus as a practical joker. He appears to be particularly fond of raising-the-dead during a funeral service and seeing the histrionic reactions of the relatives.

    It has been agreed on that all work shall remain unpublished until the full codex can be revealed. Even so the sniping has already begun. One Vatican Bishop has been reported to say that “the Jews has been secretly using this material for centuries and that accounts for the phenomenal success rate as comedians.” The only item that the scholars agree on is that ones this material is published, the Bible will be the funniest book ever!

  122. Awesome. As in I am literally in awe of you.

  123. Brilliant!
    Who was the bint at the end?

  124. If anyone needs me, I’ll be camped at A Real Bookstore until Jenny gets here. I’ll have my laptop so I can watch this book trailer over and over. They have an awesome cafe there, so I’ll be fine for food/beverages. I hope they won’t mind my tent. Do you suppose I can get them to install a shower? Maybe a bathtub… I like to read in the tub so a bathtub would be an excellent dual purpose investment for the bookstore…

  146. I’m currently driving through Nebraska on my way to South Dakota from Colorado. Well, I’M not driving. The in-laws are. I’m entertaining the toddler. The Internet is a total crap shoot and I had to watch the trailer in 3-10 second intervals. Totally. Worth. It.

    I love you. I love the people in your video (and the gorilla). I am full of love. Thanks for making a video that could make me so over the top happy!

    And seriously, I’m sooooo ready for my preordered copy to be delivered!!!

  147. I suddenly now have a huge crush on Wil Wheaton. I can’t wait for my book to come. Not only because I already know it’ll be funnier than the Bible, but because Wil Wheaton is hocking it on your behalf. And collating blank sheets of paper. At the same time. And all of those things are awesome.

  148. It’s true, your book is funnier than the Bible. Of course the Bible isn’t very funny at all, but your book is pure awesomeness.

    I once tried to write a book funnier than the Bible. I wrote six words then feared a lightning strike.

  150. Jenny,

    My birthday is coming up. I KNOW my friend is ordering me a copy of the book for the big day, but I’d really like your autograph. Or to have dinner and drinks with you. You’re my hero, and I have all my hero’s autographs or I have dinner and drinks with them. It’s a known fact. You’d like to make my dreams come true, too, I just know it.

    Back to sniffing the PineSol now.

  151. This is the coolest thing to ever happen to someone I feel like I know.

  152. I want to be BFFs with everybody in your trailer. I want them to come life in my house and we can hangout, drink wine, and make fun of the horrible people on Survivor this season because we would be BFFs and that would be awesome.

(I’m going to watch it again to see if I can make myself a quarter more awesome–as the second watching will give me at least another percentage in addition to the watching awesomeness percentage).

    You of course, are the platonic ideal of awesome.

    I will admit, though, I am puzzled by all of this pearl-clutching about the Bible joke. Are these people losing their shit every time South Park airs an episode? Maybe they are and I’m just not paying attention. Are they freaking out about Felicia Day being held at knife point? Maybe they’re doing that, too, and I just haven’t seen it. But I would assume that anyone who enjoys reading your blog would be supportive of your irreverent, bombastic sort of humor. Actually, I would assume that anyone who enjoys your blog would be sufficiently fluent in sarcasm, but, once again, maybe I’m missing all of it. Maybe this is a super-serious website. Maybe it’s me who’s missing the point. Maybe I *should* go steal a bible. And then I can steal a research monkey. And then I’ll get a squirrel cover for my smartphone. OH MY GOD I SHOULD START LIVING MY LIFE LITERALLY ACCORDING TO THE BLOGGESS AND THEN WRITE MY OWN WEBSITE ABOUT IT.

    Hi, I’m Jenny Lawson. And I wrote THE funni…Oh wait.

    Being from Canada, I’ve been delaying the pre-order in hopes that there might be some amazingly magical chance of getting a bookplate. But after finding out that this is the book for intellectual misfits, which of course I also am, I now realize that I just can’t take the risk of missing out. I have a niggling feeling that every. single. copy. will be completely sold out, and I’ll be left sad. And crying. And dying a little on the inside. But most importantly…I won’t be laughing. And who wants to live in a world without laughter? Not I, Jenny Lawson. Not I.

  238. You make my life better. EVERY DAMN DAY. I’m so excited for your book….AND I hope that your book trailer (which is awesome beyond description) makes you realize a little more every day just how incredible you are. Even if you forget, we’re all here to remind you.

    I don’t know if you’re book is out out yet, but I got it recently at a bookstore I work at, where we get like quasi edited books from publishers to see what we might want to by. Normally the bin is pretty dismal (think pseudo twilight/ gossip girl adult fiction), and then I saw, one very handsomely dressed mouse looking up at me from the bottom. I was like SWEET BABY JESUS. I’ve read your blog forever, and yes, to be corny I really love when you talk about stuff that I feel weird about…issues that I have trouble talking to my…more normal friends with. But even better than that you make me laugh so hard, I pee. Yes. Literally. Pee. So of course I read it in a day, and I am obsessed. Thankyouthankyouthankyou for putting something like this into the world. I’m sorry you had to wear a deer jacket. That part seemed especially bad. I hope you are aware of how many people you’ve touched. Like in an emotional way. Not a creepy way.

    Thanks again. Thank you thank you.

    Once I stopped laughing I realized that with a few more guest stars you could represent ALL of the Star Trek series. I’d be willing to bet you could convince George Takai to rep TOS. The only downside to this plan is that the awesome of your book would combine with the trekkie awesome by association and the resultant multiplication of the already immeasurable amount of awesome already in your book would probably create some sort of black hole, universe collapsing spacial anomaly paradoxical wibly wobly timey wimey STUFF.

    “It’s funnier than the Bible. Swear to God.” XD The interaction between you and Wil, which is absolutely priceless. I swear this is video heralds the approach of something of biblical proportions. Or…Harry Potter proportions (ergo, something of Lawson proportions). It’s an absolute nerdfest contained in 3.5 minutes.

  310. Jenny Lawson, you are so fucking funny I have no idea where you’ve been all my life. Seriously. A friend just “introduced” me to you like, 4 months ago or something, and my life has never been the same. I love you. And I love your honesty, and now I totally LOVE Wil Wheaton. He’s awesome. And you’re awesome. And I’m so glad you’re in the blogosphere.

  311. oddly enough, I would have to steal a copy of the bible to compare your book to the bible, because I don’t own one…..A preacher’s daughter from Georgia stealing a bible….lmao

  315. I bet if you donated this to my library, it would get stolen right away.

If it were only as good as the Bible, people would just write notes in it, white things out, and draw lines to save your soul. Which would be good too.

    Also, Felicia Day rocks, and Wil Wheaton is obviously a superior human being in all ways.

I think the person holding knife should be up for best supporting actor, and Victor’s portrayal of Jesus and his brave (if not risky) defamation of the Bible? Stunning! Neil Gaiman should win as best performance in a female lead for his moving performance as Jenny Lawson. Bravo! (Standing O)

  339. Holy moo-fo-ing cow! I saw this on Wheaton’s tumblr first and was all like, “woah, wait, what?!?!” and then I watched it and threw up because the awesomeness going in through my eyes was overwhelming like a fifty-pound chocolate cherry-cordial cheesecake with sprinkles and I couldn’t contain it so it had to come back out somehow and how do you even LIVE with yourself?!?! Do you have to ask your reflection for an autograph every time you pass a mirror?

  362. All I can say is that I f*&king love you after watching that video… in a totally non-weird way. Although, it’s is almost a given that it is weird since I’ve never meet you… but that’s how I roll… or physiologically process life. I’m recommitting to loving Will Wheaton. Even if, I haven’t actually meet him either or even seen him for that matter before your blog. I know would have loved him, too, if I had meet him… you know, before the last couple of months or ever. Anyone who will collate paper for you is someone I have to dig. Oh, I love Matthew Broderick. I didn’t think he could be any cooler than in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and then the egg thing, whoa. The skating guy rocks, too. I’m totally into tongs and ice cream sandwiches. I do occasionally like ovens, but not often much to my family’s dismay. I’m seriously in to roasters and kites.

True story, I was on a plane this past weekend heading to Austin, Texas (long story involving bats and UT and a rather large cow mascot) and brought a pre-release copy of your book along (one of my dear friends scarfed it from a local bookstore for me). I was listening to tunes, headset in place, when I noticed my husband staring at me and shaking his head, very Victor-like, I suspect. Rumor has it, I was SNORTING with laughter, only I thought I was quietly chuckling (headphones). A casual glance around over my shoulder confirmed. Out of consideration for my husband (and the U.S. marshall’s radar), I decided to take a nap. Looking back, I should have just read out loud, then everyone (except for the U.S. marshall perhaps) would have understood completely! Hilarious and wonderful. I absolutely love your book! C

    You should be wearing this alligator headdress in your trailer.

  420. So classic; that is hilarious :) and way funnier than the Bible!

  421. We need a Jenny day where we are ALL Jenny Lawson and get drunk on wine slushies.

  422. Jeri Ryan is my favorite.
    Since I was 7. (no pun intended =P) <3
    I wish we could be friends.

  423. Ok…I sucked it up, grew a pair, and nominated you for the Sunshine award.

    Really, it’s Claire’s fault, because she listed you, too, and I was too chicken, because, you know, you’re like this GINORMOUS blogger with a whole line of big metal chicken products, and little ol’ me? I’ve only been doing this for a few months, but Claire & I both attended the party in your bathroom, so what the hell, right?

    You’ve been pretty damned inspirational to this ol’ girl…

    Thanks for the laughs…and the Beyonce stick puppet. Even my BOSS knows her name. “Hey, Jules, is that BEYONCE in your pencil holder???” Why, yes. Yes, it is. :)

  424. Jenny Lawson, you have a fantastic voice! We should be privileged to hear your voice more often!

  425. Best book trailer ever. I might even stand in line for you and say “I knew her when… like WAY before her book was funnier than the Bible!”

  426. I love you, and you are beautiful. That is all that I can say except — Come to Portland Oregon on your tour!!!

    Thank you for being you!

  427. That is the best “commercial” ever!!!! Very proud of you!!! & sending your book to my friend in England for her Birthday – I can’t wait to read it! Congratulations & best wishes!!!!

  428. This. Is. Awesome.

    On a side note … tonight my husband was watching something on his computer and I came in to see what he was doing. It was some new show were you actually sit and watch people play board games. Yes, my husband is that big of a geek, and I love him. BUT … it was Wil Wheaton!!! And hubby says “do you know who this is?” and I said “yeah, it’s Wil Wheaton” and hubby says “WOW, how’d you know? I’m really impressed” and I giggled and said “because of the bloggess” :-)

  429. DEAR GOD. I’m so in love with this… I’d marry it if that were possible.

  431. Holy Fucking Shit Tacos! THAT’S NEIL GAIMAN! Great! Nothing I accomplish in my life will EVER be able to compete with THAT! I should just go back to bed now before I do something really stupid… like eating that huge tube of cookie dough or watching steel magnolias…after I finish watching the NEIL video… (I only got to the part where Neil says he is you before I was Like Holy fucking shit tacos I need to post a comment!)… guess now that my life has been proved irrelevant I might as well finish watching… Where the hell’s the Vodka? (and the cookie dough)

  432. OH MY GOD. You got to meet Wil Wheaton?!? Was that like, one of the best parts of all of this or what?

    Yeah, yeah. You wrote a book. But you got those people to fight over being Jenny Lawson!! That kinda makes the whole book with a mouse on the cover not as exciting anymore. Sorry to say it.

    Seriously proud of you, for you. You go, Bloggess. You go.

  433. Eeeeekkk and Amanda Palmer! hating just a little right now!

  434. Honestly Jenny – I don’t know you, but I read every post and I am so proud of you. I also have major depression and a few other quirks and I think it is absolutely amazing that you do what you do. You should be super proud of you too. BTW, kick ass with Amanda Fucking Palmer and Neil Gaiman!

  435. oh my god i love it! is your book going to be available on Kindle? It’s exactly the type of thing I want to read on my morning metro commute. laughing hysterically to yourself ALWAYS gets you a row of seats all to yourself, no matter how crowded the train is.

  436. I wish I had Wil Wheaton wrapped around my little finger like that. Either him or Matt Damon. You know. Either one.

    Melissa recently posted Um, something evil is growing on your face.

  437. Neil Gaiman?!?!?!! How did you do this? I’m impressed. All that was missing from that video was you chasing Nathan Fillion down the street, hurling a ball of twine at his butt.

    KnottyLady recently posted Off to look for sparkly alpacas....

  438. I can’t believe all these fabulous people did this! I can’t wait to get a copy of this book!

    “I’m Jenny Lawson” is the new “I am Spartacus/Brian” but without, you know, the crucifixions.

    When Neil Gaiman popped up, I absolutely thought he was about to say, “I’m Jenny Lawson, and so’s my wife.”

    The Bible bit reminded of the blurb for Good Omens (by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett) that’s Clive Barker blurbing, “The Apocalypse has never been funnier.”

    Anyway, great material, wonderful people, and yes, I just fell in love with Jeri Ryan.

    Brilliant stuff. Worthy of the wonderful book, I’m sure.

  440. Pitch perfect marketing. I believed every one of them.

  441. Dear Jenny,

    I read your tour dates and, despite your claim, you are not coming to me. I live in Wilmington, Delaware. Sometimes it sucks living in Delaware, because nobody ever visits. This makes Delawarians sad.

    Please visit us. Then I can be a happy veterinarian (it is very important that veterinarians be happy, or else we give you totally made up advice about your pet).


    disclaimer: veterinarians never actually do this…we really do try to work for the welfare of animals to the best of our abilities.

    My favorite part is Jeri’s reference to her Star Trek character. (I forgive her her astounding beauty and figure because the girl is hilarious). And watching Wil makes me think of his arc on The Big Bang Theory, which is a nice warm fuzzy.

    If I weren’t already anxious to buy your book, this video would do it!!!! Not sure what that says about me.

  443. You rule. So hard.

    Heather/muirnait recently posted Whitewashing the Fence.

  444. I’m practically speechless at the awesomeness of that video. I loved hearing your voice! Will gets +A Million for being such a great sport about the whole thing, and you get +A Million for your “my book is funnier than the Bible AND Harry Potter”, and another +A Million for the use of “ipso facto” in that sentence.

    So. Much. Awesome.

  445. Oh mah gawd you’re adorable! I want to kidnap you and then force you to read things to me. Cereal boxes. Ramen Noodle Instructions. Subtitles from foreign movies.

  446. i work the over night shift at a truckstop. the reason i am telling you this is because while i was watching the video & laughing at appropriate times… people started to stare… and point… and give me that look…. you know the one? yeah well i used this to my advantage and proceeded to show them the video… 3 of them pulled out their phones and began ordering the book. the others continued to give me “that look”… sad really that they cannot accept the brilliance that everyone else sees. i wonder if its ‘those’ people who will be eaten by zombies first?? counting down the days until i open my nook and see ‘read now’ instead of ‘preordered’ on the cover of your book….

  447. I have no idea why you would have that social anxiety problem. You are just the cutest thing ever! I’ll bet everyone wants to pinch your cheeks. Oh wait, I think I’m starting to understand why you hide in bathrooms now… your cheeks would totally get sore if everyone was pinching them all the time. I think I would freak too if everyone thought I was that awesome.

    Seriously though: great writing. Love the blog!

    Wild Dingo recently posted Hey Today, Gone Tomorrow.

  448. Love the video. I screeched (and I’m not a screecher) at Collating Wil!
    I agree that all these people are awesome, but more awesome than ENCHILADAS?!? That may be going too far!
    More awesome than chile con queso – definitely!
    (can’t wait for my copy of the book to arrive)

  449. I’m going to go collate some printer paper in solidarity! Right now!

  450. The irony is I haven’t a clue as to who anyone was in that video except YOU. Looking forward to your book!!!

  451. Oh man I lol’d to tears. I loved this so much.

    Why Isn’t your book out yet!? I want to read it now. Like right now. right now.

    Ray, rude-ass yankee

    I saw your book in the bookstore today! I work there and saw it in the back, we can’t put it out until 4/17. Also found out we got an ARC and no one told me! I fully intend to start reading it asap. Very much enjoy your site, best of luck and all!

  453. My heart is broken!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I just went to check and see if my copy of your book ever shipped, and apparently the transaction was cancelled because our credit card had expired. *FACE PALM* What kills me, is that I preordered it like, the DAY you announced it! And I had even registered to receive a signed book plate too. :( :( :(

  454. Squee!!!! Never mind, I just updated and it DID go through… I hope I get that book plate after all! :)

    And even if I don’t, I’m still thrilled that I WILL be getting my book the day it comes out. Whew. Crisis averted…

    Side note: I just want to send a thank you out to all the amazing husbands, partners, BFF’s etc. that save us every day from the Lying Bastard. He really got to me last night. I was in a puddle of tears on the bed and my husband finally took charge, called my doctor and get new meds ordered ASAP – then he drove to the 24 hour pharmacy 30 minutes away just get them picked up immediately. I’ve been trying to wean (under doc supervision) so we can conceive another baby, but it’s not going to happen this year. My mental health (as it turns out) is more important to my husband than another baby. God love that man.

  455. Based upon your sheer bravery in appearing in the video (although, I imagine having Wil there made it easier), I pre-ordered your book as soon as the video ended. I don’t ever do that. Not ever. I suppose, though, that the bravery part was only the impetus, as I’m pretty sure this will be the best read since… Well… Since Ever.

    My speakers are busted so I chose to have youtube transcribe the dialogue for me. I’m sure it’s not a patch on the actual audio but it is strangely awesome in it’s own way.

    Must run, I’m trying to get back up to date here!

  462. Is it weird that this post is how I discovered that the asshole Dr. Parrish character from Eureka is played by Wil Wheaton?
