Fifty Shades of WTF

Fifty Shades of Grey:  “Perfect reading for your family holiday”

Uhm, more like Fifty Shades of No Way.

We’re off to Canada in search of that mythical yellow star.

Enjoy the rest of the summer. See you in September.

  1. Well, that’ll put some fun back in a dysfunctional family . . . Or something.

    Enjoy yourself! If you find yourself wandering south (and a tad west, I think?) a couple hundred miles, give us a shout!

  2. Gah! That is priceless.
    “Mom, Dad? I bought you something that I thought we could read aloud together!”
    The thought puts me in need of psychiatric help pronto.

  3. My insides just shriveled up. And not even from the family-friendly sign; from the fact that bookstores are using valuable space for this “book” that is already outselling everything. Sigh.

  4. I posted a comment I meant as sarcasm on FB. 50 Shades of blah was sitting on the end display of the English section at the local bookstore. When it got a few likes and I realized how it had been taken as a good thing, my heart sank. And Laura, it was sold out when I went back a week later.

    Have a great vacation Downith!

  5. i want to smack a quick note to their poster, under the “…family holiday” line that reads:
    “if your family is in need of severe, invasive, and probably in-patient psychoanalysis.”

    i don’t even think the addams family would be in to this family-style reading.

  6. Hey, you.

    Hope your summer is going well. I’m slowly reclaiming my life. I know you get it when I say these kids of mine are squeezing me for everything they can get away with. September, take me away!

  7. OMG. Where have I been?!?! Back when you said, Take the Blog and Shove It, I thought you were D.O.N.E. done!! I shut off my auto-feed connection and that was that. Now I see I’ve been missing out!!

    Looking forward to seeing you — if you can swing it — and catching up in a couple of weeks!

  8. I’ve been out of the loop and come here only to find you’re gone. I miss you, Downith!

    So, here’s the big question for our blog circle: Has anyone broken down and read Fifty Shades??

    A friend of mine said she only read it so she could have a reasonable and educated discussion with people about how bad it was. I thought that was a pretty logical approach, although I’m not yet willing to go there…

Whatcha got?
