it was ok

This is a VERY GAY BOOK. Almost every story cites homosexual intercourse and I'm starting to feel a little, oh what's that term, reverse discriminated against? ;)


Interesting but not really funny. There were some engaging pieces but there was significantly more "okay..." and forcible with-holding of judgment. Said judgment usually went along the lines of "is he just writing every inane possibly offensive thought that comes into his head?? this is not comedy, it's self-indulgent BS."
