So I don’t know if you’ve seen this, but it’s a good watch either way…
I was going though my mom’s computer and discovered she had the eBook version of the entire 50 Shades trilogy. Then again, i’m not too surprised knowing how she likes her smutty romance novels. I decided to do her a favor and rename the files to more approperate names. If you can’t see the image:
50 Shades -> “A Horrible Twilight Fanfic, with badly written porn”
Darker-> “English Language Massacre”
Freed-> “This Trash is a Best Seller?!?”
E.L. James-> “A Twilight fan who can’t write”
I know she won’t be happy at the fact I messed with her files, but at least I hopefully saved her if she hadn’t read it yet.
I dunno if you have this but Chelsea Handler gave the best talk about 50 shades of grey
Hi! Gilbert Gottfried was on Joy Behar’s show today reading passages from 50 Shades of Grey. We thought you might get a kick out of it, so we thought we’d send it your way: http://current.tumblr.com/post/33267317266/fifty-shades-of-gilbert-gottfried-grab-a-glass

Think about it for a minute. There’s a tiny, evil woman dancing around in Ana’s head, and she looks like this.
How do you get to Ana’s age without knowing what desire feels like? (Besides being asexual, I mean.) How do you get to Ana’s age without having once thought about or explored your sexuality?
I haven’t come to any conclusions yet, but the ideas I’ve had so far are worrying at best.
“It’s just a book!” Fifty Shades fans say. “It can’t possibly have an effect on people’s behavior in the real world!”
“Sales of duct tape, cable ties and rope at a hardware store in a sleepy market town are booming - thanks to erotic novel Fifty Shades Of Grey.
“Women appear to be buying the equipment to use for sex games rather than for DIY jobs after picking up tips to spice up their love lives in the racy bestselling book.”
If Fifty Shades can cause noticeable changes in purchasing behavior of people who’ve read it, I don’t see why it couldn’t cause changes in other areas of behavior. Everything we read affects us.
I ran across this pin on pinterest and I just wanted to share my immediate reaction to it. “No, no, no, no, NO, nonono, no HELL NO, I WILL call the police.”
