My brother is a pretentious snob and he is forcing everyone to bring a book to his wedding. What is the most offensive/stupid book I can take? I instantly thought "Mein Kampf" but that's so obvious people will assume it is an attempt to be witty or ironic. Please help.

Alternatively to vagina-ass (which is retelling of the Aeneid) you could bring Ass goblins of Auschwitz. Is there a book equivalent of birth of a nation?

How about something a bit less obvious and immature, like 120 Days of Sodom?

I don't think asking people to do a book swap makes one a pretentious snob.

>>3002123 there will probably be enough copies of 50 shades floating around as it is op should bring finnegans wake and act as pretentious as possible. sneer at whatever book your brother brings, even if it's like proust or something.

>>3002140 You have to admit it's pretty fucking pretentious to force people to swap books at a wedding. What the fuck have books got to do with a wedding? And I'm sure he full well knows that most people don't read these days. He just wants to advertise that he's more cultured than everyone else, basically. I am in full support of OP's plot.

>>3002171 I doubt it's 'forcing'. He probably asked people to participate in a book swap. OP's reporting it as 'forcing' so you'll help the poor sod do something infinitesimal and immature to his bro's wedding.

I think his wedding is pretty much the only legitimate situation in which to force the people he cares about to consider a hobby that he cherishes and they might enjoy if they try it. Fuck you OP, stop trying so hard to be a party-pooper, you suck even at that. Just try to get a phonebook from 10 years ago somewhere, that would teach em.

>>3002171 i would personally do it to make light of the liars. the majority of people lie when they tell you they enjoy listening to classical music. then when you ask them what their favourite piece is they say or make reference to.. Pachelbel's Canon.

>>3002171 What on earth does the word 'pretentious' mean in your vocabulary? This action in itself without context cannot constitute pretentiousness. At this level of information and context, it's a misnomer, and it is akin to calling someone a communist because they think poor people should exist.

>>3002229 Yeah, it's called Finnegan's Wake. Because it's about a guy called Finnegan, and his metaphorical awakening, right? And because Joyce had his whole Irish slang thing, 'awake' became 'wake'. I'm James Joyce, I don't know why he made that choice.

>>3002285 Actually it's a play on "fin negans," which is an alchemical term for "end denier." I mean, it's also the thing about his funeral and stuff but that's why there's no apostrophe. Also, if the suggestions ITT are too out and out offensive, you could get pic related There's others in the series as well if anything else strikes your fancy, such as The Big Butt Book

Buy a kindle. Fill it with the sickest, most twisted, horse erotica. (at least 9 volumes) That you wrote. About your brother and his forbidden romance with a horse on the farm. His soon-to be-wife keeps catching him and their relationship slowly declines, climaxing quite literally in the harsh winter months, whereupon finding him with the horse, she snaps. Defending the leather-clad-horse, he accidently impales her with the pitchfork they've been bdsming with in the barn. They both fuck the corpse. Starring you the horse. Then if someone picked it up they'd have to weigh up getting a kindle versus what? Social humiliation for all parties? I'd like to think it's fool proof maybe
