Best Dark Humor

Death, drug abuse, bodily functions, gratuitous violence and hopeless losers can all be funny. If you couldn't really laugh at the bad stuff, then life would be a real drag. So, what's dark and funny to you?

C-tim I'm happy that Twilight hasn't been added- yet.

I hope people will add my new novel to this great list:

PERMANENT OBSCURITY by Richard Perez

PERMANENT OBSCURITY Trailer:
------> http://richardperez.net/perm-o-1.htm

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Written in an exploitation-film vernacular, this black comedy is a throwback to more radical drug-fest narratives like FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS ... satire, with an edge of anarchy. Only, this time, it involves two desperate, inexperienced young women who venture into femdom subculture. Needless to say, this is not erotica. Nor is it politically correct.

PERMANENT OBSCURITY: Or a Cautionary Tale of Two Girls and Their Misadventures with Drugs, Pornography and Death by Dolores Santana (as told to Richard Perez)

A youthful bohemian satire, a story of alienated nonconformists, a "girls on the lam" story, a sexploitation and S/M romp. Welcome to the psychosexual world of PERMANENT OBSCURITY. Inspired by the underground sexploitation films of the 1960s, this bold updating of the "roughie" subgenre largely takes place in New York City's East Village (circa 2006), and it chronicles the rise and fall of a unique and intense relationship. Dolores and Serena, two chemically dependent, down-and-out artists set out to take control of their lives by making a fetish-noir/femdom movie. Of course, things don't exactly turn out as planned.

WEBSITE FOR THE BOOK: http://permanentobscurity.com/

Amelia Honestly, this entire list could be filled by Kurt Vonnegut, haha ;) Really, though, I'm getting some excellent reccomendations from this list. Thanks!

Aachren *is so tempted to add Twilight now due to C-tim's comment*

Lol, DO IT. :)
How did Lolita wind up on here, and so high ranked?


message 7: by [deleted user] (new)

I just took away my "like" when I read that Lolita is here. that is too sick.

You are not alone


message 9: by Guy (new)

Guy Portman Chuck Palahniuk certainly has a lot of books on this list.


message 10: by Tabitha (new)

Tabitha I'm loving that Lance Carbuncle is on this list. Love his stuff!


message 11: by Rob (new)

Rob WTF? Cannot understand how most every Palahniuk was on this list except for Fight Club. It was definitely his best book IMO and is certainly rooted in very dark humor.
