Geez, you guys--get a room

Part of an occasional series in which we improve depressing or odd descriptions of vanity press books advertised in The New York Times Book Review by adding the phrase "Wacky high jinks ensue" at the end of them. Ad copy verbatim (except for the high jinks) from the March 20 issue:
Law School--A Dream--Or a Nightmare? Dexter and Judy are intellectual students who are both very passionate towards their law studies and towards each other.

Sometimes, they triple date, but their law studies never pick up the check. Cheap bastard.
During their classes, they probe into the United States Constitution ...

Understandably, their law studies are jealous.
... and unravel irreconcilable truths they are forced to question ... Wacky high jinks ensue.

Also in this week's offerings, a novel by Dick Leech. Which reminds me: No skinny dipping at the old swimming hole.

Thanks so much for that mental image. You may as well garnish with fluffernutter while you're at it.
Dick Leech. Ewwwwwww! said...

I thought the description sounded like it was a right-wing nut trying to prove that the world is being destroyed by social security or something. I went tot he site and they had a few sample pages up. I read a couple. Forget politics--the writing is really hack. The main character got an acceptance letter from a universsty; it is so unlike any letter one would get froma university it's funny.

Hmmm, most of the people G went to law school with were definitely NOT passionate about anything!!

Bring on the fluffernutter.
