Did he really just say that?!?
Douchebags have a gift for speaking the unspeakable. Vain, arrogant, brash, and clueless, they’re the worst the male species has to offer—and now their most outlandish statements have been compiled into a single volume. The Quotable Douchebag features dozens of boneheaded and tasteless remarks from actors, musicians, athletes, and politicia

Douchebags. We all know them. We all hate them. Unless we are them, I suppose. The Quotable Douchebag collects dozens of douchey quotes from dozens of notable douchebags. Some of the quotes are from folks who are douchebags through ignorance, others douchebags through arrogance. Here are some fine examples:

Richard Gere:
“I know who I am. No one else knows who I am. If I was a giraffe and someone said I was a snake, I would think, “No, actually, I am a giraffe.”

(No, Richard, actually, what you are

"I don't believe there's a difference between a monogamous and a polygamous relationship. Those are all just big words, like gymnasium."

received this as a gift from one of my students (hmmm). Pretty funny, quick read collecting exactly what the subtitle suggests.

At the risk of taking it too seriously, I started trying to induce a taxonomy of d-baggery. I think the main categories were:

1. mangled statements (GW Bush figures prominently here in this book)
2. obvious or circular-reasoning statements
3. dumb/oblivious quotes
4. bragging/narcissistic statements
5. culturally insensitive ones

Only 4 and 5 really struck me as core d-baggery

A book compiled by a Liberal. Very dissappointed that a book on Doucebags would not a bevy of quotes from the #1 Douchbag of all time: Bill Clinton. I feel bad that I ewaste my money on this attack on Fox News reporters and Republicans. One would automatically conclude that a book on Douchebags would include quotes from John Edwards, Barney Frank, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, John Kerry, Chris Matthews, Ed Schultz etc etc....In the intro, she identifies ALL Fox News employyees as Douchebags.

I got this book as a gift and it was a light, fun read. It took me an hour to read. It is essentially a book of politically incorrect, or just plain stupid quotes from politicians and certain celebrities. Unfortunately the book literally fell apart in my hands as I was finishing reading it. The binding is exceptionally awful and the pages are now completely separated from the spine as well as each other. Don't spend money on this book! Look for it in a library, or better yet, read it at the book ...more

I read this book in less than an hour. Funny, but nothing special.

This is like a fifteen minute read. Who can't like that? It's funny and sad what our nation's celebrities/politicians really think about themselves and others.
