Friday FAIL

Once again, I have enough material related to 50 Shades of Grey to fill a post.

In the past two days I have seen the book featured in not one but two different syndicated comic strips in the newspaper. The one on Adam@home was probably a one-off, and you can see it here. The other strip, Betty, has mentioned the book three days in a row at the time of writing, so it may continue for a while. Enjoy the first strip here, then use the arrow above the panel to go forward day by day.

This is the reaction many people have when reading "that book".

But then there's that other effect it has on some. Look carefully at his lap.

From Think Pink. This can't be real. Say it ain't so!

A logical juxtaposition.

Quite likely.

Poor Harry.

And finally...

The inevitable poor taste slogan on a onesie.

Picture number two, at first sight, looks like an enormous physical reaction to arousal in a male. Look number two had me questioning the presence of both the man's legs. Look number three had be wondering if one leg was bent at the knee. Either way, that's an impressive tent....and my mind needs to be washed out wih soap

Bas said...

I'm so sorry for the guy in the first picture. He hurt his hand so badly when using 50 shades as an instruction book.

Hermione, thanks for the smiles, funny.

Probably right that the film will be better than the book. Still haven't read it yet.

Have a wonderful weekend.

LOL Thanks for the chuckle Hermione! Funny, I posted a 50 Shades of Gray related post today too. Have a great weekend! :)

ROFLMAO- they are too funny. The two guys - the face on the first and the "head" on the second had me in stitches. I truly think those tee shirts will prove to be very true.

I am not sure all of these were fails.

Me again. I just realized that my story coming up on Monday has a 50 Shades reference too. Must be in the air.

Hermione, as for 'mommy reading 50 Shades of Grey'. I think hubby should have taken down her knicker's and given her a good spanking on her bare bottom.

Enzo said...

Thanks for the laughs!

The comic strip Betty it is still going on the same subject. Today's comic is actually my favorite and relates to what I was thinking on the Harry Potter interview comments...
I never understood how you could have all those young witches and wizards and no reference to hormonal mischief. If nothing else in the form of at least the young ladies' skirts being flipped up. All I can say is help all those young witches if I had magical powers...LOL

Hermione: a wonderful post... Thank you... I loved it. Ask (not tell) Ron to spank you for being so creative...
bottoms up

Hi Hermione,
Hate to ruin your evening but the magazine is REAL!!! I actually saw it in the supermarket chez nous, at the end of the summer!

Funny stuff. Thank you.

Hermione said...

Roz - I'm glad I could provide it.

Abby - Yes, I'm sure to find more very soon.

Terri - That's quite an in-depth analysis.

Bas - Ice will help that. So will rest:-)

Ronnie - Neither have I.

Grace - I just read your post. Excellent!

Sunnygirl - Ooh, I can't wait to read that story!

Six - I do believe you are right, Sir.

Enzo - I'm glad the strip is staying on that subject. As for Hogwarts, there must have been knicker exposure when they flew around on their brooms.

Red - Me give Ron an order? In your dreams!

A. Lurker - OMG really? I had no idea! Thanks for letting me know - I think:-)

Joey - You're quite welcome.

Even Vogue has gotten into the mania with "50 shades of pink, Fashions new fetish"

I now have to hide the Jammin Lether catalog. They have 50 shades printed on the cover and more fetish gear inside. What happened to all the motorcycle leather?

Yuk to the whole thing. A sucky book that gets kink all backward is flippin well everywhere. You can't really blame people for cashing in on it, but it still sucks.

The only good thing about it is that, like all bandwagons, it will be gone soon. Not so many people talking about Twilight now, are there?
