Response to Journal Entry Question p.181

Hodgman uses humor in her essay to keep her reader’s interested. The title itself, ” No Wonder They Call Me A Bitch,” is humorous for throughout the essay she describes how she tested the flavor and quality of dog food by consuming it. There are parts throughout the essay that further indicate her humorous side as well. For example, after she sampled several different brands, she concluded that “O.N.E. was pretty palatable… maybe [she’d] been duped by the packaging; that’s been known to happen before,” (p.179 paragraph 19). This is my favorite line. Not only does she treat this like an actual science experiment, but she also explained her conclusion.
