Your Comics Curmudgeon Has Written a Fancy Book

by Ken Layne

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]

Cool, Amazon has it as a Kindle edition, sweet!

Beowoof October 26, 2011 at 5:57 pm

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.

bumfug October 26, 2011 at 6:37 pm

I'm with you on the Kindle but I'm going with a bottle of Francis Coppola merlot.

littlebigdaddy October 26, 2011 at 9:54 pm

Elitist!

bumfug October 26, 2011 at 10:23 pm

I'm treating myself – my unemployment check arrived today.

chascates October 26, 2011 at 5:09 pm

Does it have lotz of cartoons?

prommie October 26, 2011 at 5:10 pm

Yummmm, meat oreos!

Lionel[redacted]Esq October 26, 2011 at 6:08 pm

They are Rick Perry's favorite.

prommie October 27, 2011 at 10:14 am

Two discs of beef jerky with creamy lard in between, oh mamma!

RadioOcupados October 26, 2011 at 5:13 pm

Needs moar flash grenades.

hagajim October 26, 2011 at 5:13 pm

Is there piktures in it?

ifthethunderdontgetya October 26, 2011 at 5:15 pm

Wikipedia can be a very fun place.

Unfortunately, Josiah Cantrall's wikipedia entry was cleaned up after it was so gleefully desecrated by Sadly Naughts, but revenge has been claimed.

Now it's marked for deletion.

"This article fails to meet the notability standards of Wikipedia"

Heh.

Biel_ze_Bubba October 26, 2011 at 6:17 pm

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.

LettucePrey October 26, 2011 at 5:16 pm

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.

SorosBot October 26, 2011 at 5:23 pm

But does it have any of Glenn McCoy's insane, often racist scribblings?

neiltheblaze October 26, 2011 at 5:24 pm

Congratulations, Josh!

Pragmatist2 October 26, 2011 at 5:25 pm

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?

Biel_ze_Bubba October 26, 2011 at 6:18 pm

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

johnnyzhivago October 26, 2011 at 5:26 pm

Word for the wise: don't EVER get into an argument with Wikipedia editors.

tessiee October 26, 2011 at 10:28 pm

Shhhhh!
Don't tell that to Silly Sarah's fans!

elviouslyqueer October 26, 2011 at 5:28 pm

Oh, I am going to edit the shit out of this. Wait, what?

weejee October 26, 2011 at 5:29 pm

Do they note that if you ask Wiki about butt sechs, the favorite topic at Wonkette, you get directed to Iran and weapons of mass destruction?

chascates October 26, 2011 at 5:36 pm

And what ever happened to young Jack Stueff?

JustPixelz October 26, 2011 at 5:41 pm

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.

Tommmcattt October 26, 2011 at 5:52 pm

He's in my basement in the gimp suit. Lovely, lovely little Jack dog…

elviouslyqueer October 26, 2011 at 6:14 pm

"It rubs the lotion on its skin, or else it gets the hose again," amirite?

Tommmcattt October 26, 2011 at 6:25 pm

It gets the hose anyway.

Lionel[redacted]Esq October 27, 2011 at 1:01 am

Strange, I always assumed Riley would be the one that ended up like that.

JustPixelz October 26, 2011 at 5:38 pm

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?

Barb October 26, 2011 at 5:55 pm

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.

chascates October 26, 2011 at 6:02 pm

In terms of brown liquors would Booker Noe be acceptable?

Barb October 26, 2011 at 6:20 pm

Absolutely!

littlebigdaddy October 26, 2011 at 9:55 pm

I'm glad you are not speaking about santorum. Ech.

Bonzos_Bed_Time October 26, 2011 at 6:31 pm

Congrats on the Jesus-Bug!

Barb October 26, 2011 at 8:55 pm

Thanks!

fuflans October 26, 2011 at 6:51 pm

love the avatar.

Barb October 26, 2011 at 8:55 pm

Thank you!

SexySmurf October 26, 2011 at 5:55 pm

If Wikipedia is sometimes wrong (something I refuse to believe), does that mean Jerry Falwell didn't choke to death on Pat Robertson's cock?

Barb October 26, 2011 at 6:25 pm

No, Marcus Bachmann stepped in, giving Jerry the Hindlick maneuver and the choking came to a climax.

tessiee October 26, 2011 at 10:29 pm

At which point, Falwell went belly up.

emmelemm October 26, 2011 at 6:07 pm

Get a real job, hippie!

Oh wait… You did!! Congratulations, a book = awesome.

chascates October 26, 2011 at 6:08 pm

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.

Lionel[redacted]Esq October 26, 2011 at 6:10 pm

According to the Wikipedia entry, the book is terrible.

Congratulations Josh.

Bonzos_Bed_Time October 26, 2011 at 6:29 pm

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

fletc3her October 26, 2011 at 6:37 pm

Thrash has edited his Wikipedia page with false info so many times that they are now correcting it back to earlier submitted false info. Wikipedia editors keep reinstating the "fact" that Ted Nugent was a bassist for The Orb.

fuflans October 26, 2011 at 6:52 pm

oh josh! congrats! (i always appreciated your jabs at the furriners…).

i be buying pronto.

BarackMyWorld October 26, 2011 at 7:04 pm

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.

Dok-cupy Everything October 26, 2011 at 7:38 pm

What? Nothing on the Pacific Northwest Tree Octopus?

Lionel[redacted]Esq October 27, 2011 at 1:07 am

All of these years living in the PNW, and I had to look that up. Cool beans.

twaingirl October 27, 2011 at 1:32 pm

librarian? or science teacher?

Dok-cupy Everything October 27, 2011 at 8:20 pm

General nerd.

(And raving Twain fan–just picked up Mark Twain: Man in White, but haven't had a chance to read it yet…)

Sharkey October 26, 2011 at 7:47 pm

GO JOSH!

Sharkey October 26, 2011 at 7:50 pm

"…it is Very Funny and Very Sad, together, which is the way you like things at Wonkette."

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

keepem_sikanpor October 26, 2011 at 10:29 pm

Word.

Monsieur_Grumpe October 26, 2011 at 7:58 pm

OK I'll buy a copy. But I want it autographed by Josh saying "I'm sorry for making fun of Mark Trail"

MG

ttommyunger October 26, 2011 at 9:43 pm

Steal it? Maybe. Buy it? Not gonna happen.

littlebigdaddy October 26, 2011 at 9:57 pm

So is Josh a job creator?

keepem_sikanpor October 26, 2011 at 10:27 pm

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.

Sharkey October 26, 2011 at 10:45 pm

SPOILER: There's lots of bad stuff about Wikileaks and Anonymous in there too.

DerrickWildcat October 27, 2011 at 2:06 am

I feel a little famous just for knowing this.
Thank you.

FNMA October 27, 2011 at 8:51 am

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?

DahBoner October 27, 2011 at 9:51 am

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?

Barrelhse October 28, 2011 at 12:00 am

Next to the toilet would be appropriate.

OccupyFnChicken October 27, 2011 at 1:09 pm

"Book"?

Wonderthing October 27, 2011 at 3:47 pm

Am I in it? I cain't write for shit.

Billmatic October 28, 2011 at 12:25 pm

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.

politics_nerd October 28, 2011 at 7:59 pm

Wall Balls.

kezliura1 February 2, 2012 at 9:18 am

You mean he surfed the web for a few weeks and wrote a book about it???
