The Reason Books Aren't Cool, Anymore.

Honestly, at least one of you could have smoked stylishly.



John Waters has a lot of work to do to make up for videos like this, but always remember:

My dear,

We need to make books cool again. If you go home with somebody and they don’t have books, don’t fuck them. Don’t let them explore you until they’ve explored the secret universes of books. Don’t let them connect with you until they’ve walked between the lines on the pages.

Books are cool, if you have to withhold yourself from someone for a bit in order for them to realize this then do so.


Truly yours,
John Samuel Waters


(Even if the author of the book you like is playing a half orc who was vomited on.)
