Fake Book Covers On The Subway Is Surprisingly Hilarious

The blog has been out of commission the past few days due to some scheduling conflicts, and will continue to be for most of the weekend. But while I have the time, I thought I’d throw some stuff up quickly.

So a few days ago, this book cover on the subway went semi-viral


Pretty easy to assume this was fake. Anyone who as ever read something remotely suss in public before knows that you either 1) shell it up with a fake book cover, 2) plant that thing firmly on your lap to hide the cover, or 3) put it in your bag and probably never read it because internet blogs > books. Even if you were trying to throw out that butt-munching vibe to girls on the subway, you’d probably be a little more discreet and tactful than to just hold it up to your face. I know that it’s 2016 and eating ass has become pretty mainstream, but there’s still a level of self-consciousness that would hold most people back from blatantly advertising their sexual fetishes in public. It’s one thing to hold a book titled “Ass Eating Made Simple” under your arm while hoping to catch the eye of a girl… it’s another to hold it in front of your face like a Navy Plebe reading your Reef Points*.



All you’re doing there is telling me it’s fake. That’s just way too blatant.

So when I saw this video, I had no expectations. Just another Dude Viral prank trying way to hard and killing multiple jokes in the process.

But you know what… I gotta admit… I laughed. I laughed multiple times.

A big shout to Bobby Durst…


Gone Girl 2: Even Goner…


And even the predictable Trump joke


I laughed. What can I say. I’m a writer (blogger), I appreciate a well written quip (an internet joke for other people who spend to much time on the internet). Sure, the execution was a little too much with the whole book-in-front-of-his-face thing, but it was still funny. Because as someone who always looks and will absolutely go out of my way to see what someone is reading on the train, I appreciate the hell out of this idea.

Solid B+

*quick sidenote: I come from a Navy family, so as fat and lazy as I am, there was always a chance I maybe went to the academy. But the second I learned that Plebes had to stand there and read Reef Points for hours at a time was the second I decided I was never going to Navy. Hard to find two things I’m worse at than “standing still” and “reading books”. I legitimately have the attention span of a puppy.
