I haven't read any of "50 Shades of Grey", nor do I plan to. Up till now the most I'd read was the synopsis in the Sunday Herald-Sun, which made me laugh. That writer didn't like the book at all - but nowhere near as much as this writer, who absolutely hates them, not least because she is active in the BDSM scene. The books are allegedly set in that scene. Allegedly. She started tearing them to shreds here, in a totally not-safe-for-work-or-children way. Also a totally hilarious way. So far my favourite quote is:

"He palms my clitoris" What, like a basketball? How big is your clitoris, Ana?

Yes I admit this made me laugh out loud.

Another site that's had me laughing out loud is Sleep Talkin' Man, which is a collection of recordings of one man's nocturnal sayings. Recorded and published by his wife. I have no idea why his dream life is so vivid but it is frequently hilarious (and again NSFW or children.)

Some random quotes:

"It's NOT a fat ass. I suffer from Hippo-bottom-mass. You should feel sorry for me."

"Okay, Jesus, if you are the son of God, wave your hands in the air... Ha ha. Didn't think so."

"Okay: On three, I'm gonna change into a dinosaur. One… Two… MEOW. Oh fucking cat! Always cats."

I watched a (UK) doco on 50 Shades last night. I will not be bothering to read any of them. Apparently the books grew out of Twilight fan fiction.

Yes, yes they did. This still doesn't explain why the lead character is literally unbelievably stupid (something the deconstruction takes aim at rather a lot), but it does explain why everyone is wooden and very emo.

Having said that I'd totally read the series if it turns out that Ana (lead woman) is actually a vampire who then kills Christian (lead male) and almost every other named character in it.

I'm still working my way through the second one, it manages to make me laugh on a regular basis.
