Go Fug Yourself goes literary.

Y'know, I'm just not sure about this:

I appreciate that the Fug Girls need and totally deserve to be paid for their work, but... a book?

Nobody loves the Go Fug Yourself blog more than I do. I read it religiously*, but would I really be willing to spend twenty dollars for a book (even a brilliant, deliciously evil one) about celebrity fashion missteps? I don't think so. See, the thing about gossip blogging is that it's always current. We know it's okay to be making fun of Mischa Barton's freaky plaid diaper-style shorts or an Olsen twin for dressing up as the Winter Warlock, because if anything really terrible had happened to them everybody would find out. But it's less fun when you find out that the person you've been mocking is actually a total headcase (Britney Spears), and she's dressing like a crazy person because she IS a crazy person.

So I think I'll stick with the site, and just show my financial support for its creators by clicking on their advertisers. (Many of which are very cool, by the way.) That way, when we find out that Starlet A dresses like a loon because of her husband's perpetual infidelities, or that freaky-looking Musician B was hideously abused as a child, at least I won't have a $20 reminder on my bookshelf of all the times I laughed at them.

*And I can't believe they LIKED that Alicia Keyes outfit.

They have a t-shirt store now, too.
