I mean, seriously, A Bold Fresh Piece of Humanity?! Almost sounds like he's hiring himself out for escort services.

1. I'd just call it false advertising.
The man has neither boldness nor a piece of humanity.

From what I've heard he does get pretty fresh now and then though.

5. i saw it in a book store a couple of weeks ago
the title and the cover cracked me up.. not to mention that it's such an egotistical title regardless of the perviness of it.

6. Supposedly, that's what some elementary school nun called him.
I heard him explain it on some interview somewhere. The guy's still a megalomaniacal jerk.

14. Yup, nunspeak is the key.
I'm certain Sister would never approve of the loofah, either.

13. Oh yeah, I'd forgotten about his novel!
Maybe I should read it one of these days, just to see how laugh-out-loud awful it is.
