50 shades

'50 Shades of Grey' has become Britain's best-selling book (egads!), and who knows how many more copies will sell when the movie version comes out.  But being the most sold does not mean that it is the most treasured.  Apparently charity shops are reporting that hundred of copies are being offloaded to them.  The books are not recyclable because of the binding glue.

My own neighbor Michelle tried to offload her trilogy onto me but I already had been gifted a set.  I suspect her of eventually convincing some poor sucker at the pub to take them home to his wife.  Maybe she will become one of those readers who had made spanking a mainstream sexual activity.

I used to wear skintight, shiny, vinyl pants to work when I was a bartender.  My tip jar could attest to the fact that there are people out there who really, really like shiny, black, vinyl clothing.  Those pants payed my undergraduate tuition.
