"Stephen Colbert Dedicated His Entire Show To Paying Tribute To J.D. Salinger Last Night"
“interesting and quite funny effort”
Which cannot be said of Salinger’s works. Come at me, grown ass adults clinging to fifth grade writing.
“Grown ass adults” like Stephen Colbert? Meh. In the time it would take me to actually bother defending his work to you he’ll have sold more books then you’ll ever read…
Ah yes the Achy Breaky Heart defense.
Ah yes, the Non Sequitur rebuttal…
I don’t think you know what a Non Sequitor is, chief.
Either that or you don’t. And since Billy Ray Cyrus is no longer selling 250,000 albums a year or will be 41 years from now, the evidence is pointing to you.
It’s widely considered one of the worst songs ever yet was incredibly successful, the notion that just because something is a huge commercial success makes it unassailable, which is the exact suggestion you just made. Him “selling more books than I’ll ever read” is some wink worthy putdown of any criticism of his writing, alright!
Riiight, and it’s popularity has translated into continued immense sales and exhaustive musical debate even today. Oh, wait, right…that didn’t happen.
Don’t you EVER disagree with me about my GODS, you little fuckstick! Look at all the great and wonderful people that love them as much as I do! You have NO RIGHT to not worship as we do! Don’t make me start killing your gods, ’cause I’ll fucking do it!
Come at yourself, jerk.
Also, he was basically a pedophile.
At least Salinger had the self-restraint to keep in his pants until the girl was of legal age.
…then dumped her a few months later.
He’s no Charlie Chaplin…
Salinger was a great writer, but you only get to say that if you acknowledge that Holden Caulfield ended the novel in a mental institution.
Fuck Salinger. ZERO zombies and/or vampires in his “books.”
