107. Dunno if it counts...
But I thought "Men are From Mars, Women are From Venus" was the most idiotic, sexist piece of drivel I've never had the pleasure of not reading. I was honestly offended when I read it, and it takes a lot to offend me.

As for Literature, I can't stand James Joyce. I had to read "Finnegan's Wake" in high school and it was unintelligible. The whole point of writing WELL is writing so that people can actually understand what you're trying to say. If it takes you an hour, a thesaurus, and the Oxford Guide to Allusions to get through one sentence, then the damn thing is just poorly written. I don't care if you ARE a snotty Irish writer popular enough to get away with being obnoxious.
