Your Comics Curmudgeon Has Written a Fancy Book

It has some secret Mary Worth double penetration in the final pages.What has famous Wonkette columnist/ex-editor Josh Fruhlinger been up to, since he was so lazy that he decided to stop writing a few easy Wonkette posts in the morning? Obviously, he is just spilling soft drinks on his belly and eating “100 calorie packages of meat Oreos” all the time, but also he has written a book! It is called Citation Needed, and it is all about the joyous idiocy of Wikipedia, and we’ve read enough of the associated website to confirm that it is Very Funny and Very Sad, together, which is the way you like things at Wonkette.

Go buy his filthy book! [[Citation Needed]: The Best of Wikipedia’s Worst Writing]

      On my way to get Kindle copy. After that Oakland situation I need something fun. Probably won't be enough and I will be opening a Rex Goliath soon.

        Dumbfucks like Cantrall make FaceBook and LinkedIn start to wonder if they should have "notability" standards. Only a gigantic metastatic tumor of an ego could account for his giving himself a Wikipedia entry. With a bit of luck, he'll be forever associated with that spectacular (and highly public) display of narcissism.

    SPOILER ALERT: Its major plot twist features Herman Cain's campaign manager eating a double Big Mac, inserting a pinch of Copenhagen into his upper lip, ripping off the "Do Not Remove" label from a mattress, and putting his cigarette out into the ice cream cone of a six-year-old girl.

    Srsly, this book looks frakking hilarious. I know a few people who get all their information from Wikkkipedia, so this is going to make a great stocking stuffer.

  2. Pragmatist2

    You mean he surfed the web for a few weeks and wrote a book about it????
    Holy Wozniak!!! Why didn't I think of that?

      What a waste of time … he could have spent 30 minutes on Conservapedia, and had twice as much material that's twice as hysterical.

      I heard he went to "The Onion". After seeing Kortney, I'd have chosen to work at "The Cuke" but Jack must have taken some HPV vaccine and caught mental retardation.

    I'm waiting for "Barb's Barbs: Snark You Can Believe In".

    Congratulations Josh. You learned the copy/paste from the intertubes in college, right?

    1. Barb

      That's really funny, thanks!
      Seriously, there are several of you that I would love to get together with. We could celebrate the brown liquors and bounce snark off each other until we have a book.

    p. 20
    The Terminator
    The studio had suggested O. J. Simpson for the role of the Terminator, but Cameron did not feel that Simpson would be believable as a killer.

    The true victim in the sad, sordid O.J. Simpson saga? James Cameron’s credibility.

  5. Bonzos_Bed_Time

    Wait, it looks like he only wrote half the book. Who is this dirty hippy that wrote the other half?

  6. BarackMyWorld

    I hope there's a section on worthless trivia. At no point when researching the life or work of Stephen Hawking would someone actually need to know which episodes of "Family Guy" have satirized him.

    Please relay this information to Kirsten.
    (I mean, does she even read your posts, Ken?)

    Meat filled oreos ain't shit unless they're deep fried. Way to go, Josh! Guess I'll "Amazon" it for a paper copy since all of our book stores have gone away and I'm too poor for a kindle. Seems like it should be owned in a print copy, anyway.

  9. FNMA

    Shameless self-promotion alert: My new book just arrived. I'll pimp it later. One blurber called me "a twisted bastard with a heart of gold."
    What's this "heart of gold" shit?

  10. DahBoner

    But does he wear a pork pie hat and have a big siren?

    And I can't afford a coffee table to put his book on.

    Will a plastic milk crate stolen from behind the Piggly Wiggly do?

  11. Billmatic

    Well lah dee dah. Typical egghead liberal always talking down to people and writing words to read.

    I don't need that shit in MY America.
