I imagine you are a lot like me.  You cried whenever one of your parental units stopped reading Joseph Conrad aloud and tried to switch to this James fellow and his Giant Peach.  Roald Dahl was the name of the perpetrator of your tears.  As you read below you have reason to cry even louder, but as a grown adult you can now do something about it:

Via the Internet via Boing Boing via ThisRecording:

There is a little bit for everyone to hate about Roald Dahl –

Jews: He hates them.

Republicans: Homewrecker

The Military: Couldn’t hack the AirForce.

Women: He hates them.

Africans: He hates them.

Children: He writes books for the little beasts.

People who work in publishing companies: He yells at them.

Rep. Anthony Weiner: His inappropriate sexy time stuff seems so much more inappropriate and interesting than you.

His writing: It often wasn’t, like, very good and stuff.

His name: Learn how to spell “Roald” – as if.

How can We The People strike back at Roald Dahl?

Help send Roald Dahl to an early grave.

Take that dog eared copy of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (A secret reference to the Viet Cong btw) and Burn it.  Burn that Giant Peach as well.  Matilda? Burn it too.  On a Kindle?  Burn the Kindle.

You have one week to do this – be brave, buy a lighter, take pictures.

    Congrats, 0 comments and 2 tweets. Your post lacked any semblance of wit. You aren’t exactly the next Chuck Palahniuk…or even Maddox.

    YOU STUPID MOTHER FUCKER!!!! Even if you dont like his book for some God unknown reason, there are children in Africa who would kill to even touch a book! You are a self centered person who thought he would look cool on the internet by burning some books and writing a nasty comment on a man who has written plenty of well constructed and amazing books. You know i bet your american, because what you did is something only and american dumb fuck would do! Shame on you, honestly dude grow up!!!!

      I am personal launching a campaign against violent book seeking African children. Violence even in the name of African literary-based touching needs a proper response and that response is cluster bombs. And yes I am American, we all Burn Books, its in the Constitution after all…
