It’s safe to say that Tina Fey is one of the most perfect human beings ever created.


For starters, she is an absolutely hilarious comedian, Emmy award-winning writer, actor, and mother of two. Besides that, she is just cool. Fey gets it. She is a strong, confident, honest, female role model and the person we most wish we could lure into a freaky-Friday life-swap situation.


If you are a human being and you have not yet read Tina Fey’s best-selling autobiography, “Bossypants,” do it right now. Literally stop reading this and go to and order it. We will wait…


Done? OK, well, “Bossypants” is no ordinary autobiography. It is in fact the most hilarious autobiography ever written. In it, Fey openly details her current life as a working mother and woman living in New York, her unique upbringing in suburban Pennsylvania, how she got her scar, her awkward “supernerdhigh school and college years, her famous Sarah Palin skits on Saturday Night Live (SNL) as well as her writing and acting career on her own show, “30 Rock.”


In “Bossypants,” Fey reflects on her past by openly discussing topics such as women in the workplace and peeing in jars, being a little bit fat, being a little too skinny, awkward childhood years (that’s a given), hooking up in the back of cars, airbrushing and retouching celebrity photo-shoots, motherhood, adult acne, the effects of sleep deprivation, breast-feeding, being in the same room as Oprah Winfrey; Fey details all these topics in such a way that anyone could read it and enjoy themselves.


After reading Fey’s autobiography, you will conclude three things.


1. Tina Fey is the most hilarious autobiography-writer to ever live;


2. You wish Tina Fey was your mom, sister, best friend (even an estranged aunt would be pretty awesome);


3. Tina Fey is an amazing person, and although she makes hilarious missteps every once in a while, she is pretty darn good at life.


Fey is living, breathing proof that women are indeed funny, and that some are so funny that while reading their autobiography, you may accidentally burst out laughing on an otherwise silent subway car ride or while standing in line at your local Starbucks.


Tina Fey is an inspiration to those of us who dare to hope to one day excel in our respective fields of study, and raise a family at the same time. Fey is tough, independent, and blatantly unafraid to speak her mind, but she also embraces her imperfections and human-ness. Take her advice: “Do your thing and don’t care if they like it.”
