I was at Safeway the other day when I saw something that really disturbed me. I was so upset that I took some pictures with my cellphone.
Nope. You are seeing it correctly. This is a picture of two NASCAR Harlequin romance novels. (There were others but the pictures came out blurry).
This makes me feel like my head is going to explode. Is there a market for this? Who is reading these? Admit it right now if it is you. Me? I think I’d rather jab myself in the eye with a sharp stick than read one of these books in my free time.
I’m not sure I’d read one of these if you paid me.
Well of course if you paid me enough I would, I’m not an idiot. But I wouldn’t enjoy it. No sir, I wouldn’t like it one bit. My head hurts just thinking about what kind of Busch Light beer fest the marketing department was having when they came up with this gem. I wonder if they even sell these above the Mason Dixon line. I moved 1000 miles north and I still live somewhere where they sell NASCAR romance novels in my grocery store.
I am so worked up about these books that I am thinking of having a contest to see if any of you can find even stupider books, but I haven’t decided what kind of prize would be appropriate. Would you guys play along?
