If I Did It by OJ Simpson
« on: November 19, 2006, 05:37:03 am »
Did you hear about OJ's new book? I can't believe he wrote this book. He must be running out of money and has to capitalize on his wife's murder again. I wonder how his kids feel about this one. I for one, will not be buying this book.

I had a discussion about this in English Class. Even the publisher thinks that this book is a confession. However, I am sad to say that I feel it will sell well. Just so we can marvel at this man's unique form of stupidity. I won't buy it, of course, because I'm sure it will be very tough to read (he's not an English major, so the prose will be horrific and the storyline incoherent).

Since the book will probably make money, the Goldman family might get some of it since they won the civil suit again OJ. Also, the IRS might be watching it too, I think he owed back taxes.

Way to make sweeping judgements about an author's writing style based on absolutely nothing. ::)

Absolutely nothing?! He's a football player for Christ's sakes! They're not known to be intelligent! How about this:

(He's not an English major, so chances are the prose will be sub-par and the storyline less than adequate).

Since the book will probably make money, the Goldman family might get some of it since they won the civil suit again OJ. Also, the IRS might be watching it too, I think he owed back taxes.

A professor of law at University of Chicago (maybe) said that with sufficient "lawyring" he can avoid paying a single cent to the family (again).

What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

It'll sell well. Chopper Reid did something similar when he was in gaol and is now a best selling author dispite being "semi bloody illiterate" as he put it. Then they made a blockbuster movie based on the books. He all but admits to locations around melbourne where people are burried. It's sick, yes but people are buying the books.
Dont look at me, I'm irrelevant!

If he really wanted to prove he was innocent, he would have written this years ago.

???  How would that have proved his innocence? 
If you were going for subtle sarcasm, it was too subtle.

It's basic Psychology my friend. A very interesting and insightful subject you may want to take.

$100 goes to the first person that puts a very well photoshopped cover of the book saying "I did it" on his page in Wikipedia!

Apparently Fox News had planned a two hour interview with him about his book but they got so much protest from their own employees, affiliates and viewers that they canceled plans to do it. Bill O'Reilly and Geraldo Rivera were two of the high profile Fox team members who protested. I'm glad to hear that, this whole book thing is just wrong.
