Just ewwwwwwwwww.

They must be listening to it on tape, because they're too dumb to read.

White tails and ties is so classic.

Infectious disease doctors are now seeing ooze that is 50 shades of green.

"They must be listening to it on tape, because they're too dumb to read."

Clankie, the books themselves are too dumb to read. I flipped through the first one out of curiosity and gave up after the first few chapters; I've seen YA novels with better writing and deeper characters.

Of course, that might be because "Fifty Shades of Grey" was orignally, so it's said, written as a piece of Twilight fan-fic; the original version is reportedly still available online if you've the stomach to go looking for it. (H.P. Lovecraft's observation that there are some things man was never meant to know applies here, I think.)

...not to mention an increase in pulled muscles.

I think Dave's take on 50 SHADES in his new book said all that needed to be said and I applaud him for having the fortitude to actually read the entire piece of crap thing.

This beer's for you, Dave.

There's an enjoyable short e-book called "Fifty Shades of Stupid" that made me laugh a lot and dissects "Grey" on many levels. Author: Poupón Grey. :)

I'm just going to stick with Dave's review of this stupid book.

Heh. You said "surge."

I have friends who can't mention that book without giggling.

I asked my dog if he'd read "Fifty Shades" and he said, "Nah, it's all gray."
