Incredible Imbeciles

previous post: It’s FANtastic Friday



  1. Barry’s either stupid or trying to be funny, in which case he’s just a dick.

  2. I’d cut David some slack, but he wrote one fucking book… not hard to remember

  3. kg324 so true. Kinda hard to fuck that up.

  4. Kellie will be doing something strange for a little change in a couple of years.

  5. he definitely wrote more than one book, and they’re all quite good.

  6. 28 likes he passed away????

  7. LMAO at Barry!!

  8. he’s written at least four books. and lots of short stories. maybe you should make a more intelligent comment before you bash someone else’s intelligence.

  9. lulz @ Barry. And even if JD Salinger only wrote one book, I don’t think it’s that hard to realize that it definitely wasn’t Animal Farm.

  10. The scary/ironic thing that’s happening is that the “Incredible Imbeciles” comments will live forever here *facepalm*

  11. I haven’t read that book yet, but going by the kind of people who go on about it, it seems to be the number one choice of book for letting people know how brooding and deep you are. Kinda hard to want to read a book favoured by pretentious dickheads. But that’s not Sallinger’s fault.

    Now there are going to be groups all over the place with roughly the exact same message and nearly the same posts. Who would want to be remembered that way?

  12. I reckon Barry was being funny and not lame.
    However, if you’ve ever read Catcher in the Rye….now that’s a lame book. It’s like reading a miserablist goth’s diary..
    Man the fuck up Holden Caulfield.

  13. i read catcher and the rye and i gotta say i couldn’t get past the first page before saying “hmmm boring book”.

  14. worst_episode_ever

    i hate girls like kellie who bleach their hair but let their greasy black roots grow an inch or more… she’s nasty

  15. Haha, he only wrote the one book……………riiiiiiiight.

  16. Barry definitely wins there.

  17. Catcher in the rye is mandatory grade 10 literature here, and it was terrible to get through. What is the significance of the ducks?

  18. @11 The only thing worse than people liking it to show “how brooding and deep” they are is the people who refuse to read it to show how they TRULY are brooding and deep. Hmm…

    (Salinger’s always been one of my favorite authors, more for “Nine Stories” and “Franny & Zooey.”)

  19. #17 The significance of the ducks:
    The ducks are important to Holden because he is straddling youth and adulthood and he doesn’t want to make the leap. He likes the things that he can count on to always stay the same: the museum, the park, the merry-go-round, the lion statues, and the ducks that return year after year. Change (ie a change from a boy to a man) makes him nervous and he is drawn to innocence, and that which he can depend on to always stay the same.

  20. re: Salinger and “Catcher,” the most popular work is often not the best one. I suppose everyone here thinks sgt. pepper is the best beatles album, as well. “Catcher” is so popular because almost everybody identifies with Holden at some point, usually around age 15. Those much older than fifteen tend to find the book whiny, because it is–it’s an accurate view into a teenager’s mentality, and there is no one whinier than a 15/16 year old, except maybe a baby.

    Try reading nine stories and franny and zoeey. These are mature books. Though you have to REALLY like dialogue.

  21. That second one was almost as amazing as the good folk on twitter killing off zach braff a few months ago.

  22. Oh David, Oh Barry, Oh Kellie… nuf said.

  23. I hated Catcher in the Rye. The symbolism was far too obvious and repetitious, the colloquialisms made me wince and Salinger’s attempt to sound like a teenage boy was appalling.

    However I did see a status worse than the animal farm one. Someone’s boyfriend had asked if Salinger had written 1984, and then corrected himself with “no no I mean one flew over the cuckoo’s nest”.

  24. Holden IS what teenage boys sounded like in 1951.

  25. Merci, we went over that in english and were told the ducks had no meaning

  26. I don’t see anything amusing about Kellie’s post other than lack of capitalization, mis-punctuation, and general disregard for your/you’re.

  27. Her lack of grammatical regard proves she isn’t smart.

  28. So, if Kelly is ever disfigured in a fire or car wreck, she’s screwed. Look both ways, hon.

  29. Excuse me, I meant to say Salinger wrote one NOVEL. The rest are just a collection of short stories (or novellas, like Franny & Zooey) for example.

    barry is hilarious!!

    The White Album is the best Beatles album; Sgt. Pepper oscillates between third and fourth in my rankings. I guess that was kind of your point, but just saying.

  32. Abbey Road is the best Beatles album. And I’ve no interest in reading a book about a teenage boy, especially if it involves angst. I hate teenagers and their angst. I also lost any interest in reading it when I found out Mark David Chapman had it with him when he assassinated John Lennon. Illogical, I know, but I’m sticking with it.

  33. I’m 13 and I think Catcher in the Rye is great, but as far as I know, I’m not filled with teenage angst, or angst of any sort. I just enjoyed the book and have found more and more to enjoy about it the more times I read it.

  34. Oh, “Kellie”, “your” not pretty, either.

  35. Kellie’s desperate attempt to convince herself that she’s attractive. Postscripted with a half hearted “ouch” to give the impression that she finds it an insult, rather than the only compliment she received all week.

    Well at primary school, our teacher informed us it was incorrect to link two Os together.

  37. LMFAO! i laughed so much at the “i loved him in scrubs”
