Authors take note. Paula Deen has become a very controversial figure. In the popular media she is toast, very well buttered toast. Sponsors, networks and I am sure, even many of her hanger-on friends, have dropped her like radioactive slag.
But! She shot up to NUMBER ONE on Amazon!! You know, Amazon- with 130-million-billion active titles of which I was once #95,651 (#343 now and trending upwards according to my psychic. Although, I don’t think my psychic has my publisher’s phone number?).
But no matter, the fact is that while a transgression from over 25 years ago has plummeted her standing in our popular culture, AMAZINGLY at the same time, it has rocketed her to NUMBER 1, NUMERO UNO, on Amazon! Now that’s a deal with the devil any author would pay double for.
So all you folks in the media take notice, here’s my big confession…
comin 1962 I called lunch room monitor, Joey Mantone, and I am quoting here: “A big, fat, stupid, Doody Head!”
And just to add insult to the verbal injury, I know that I stuck my tongue out at him when I said it.
How’s that? Pretty horrible and despicable right? I mean it’s got to be good for at least a spot in Amazon Top Ten! I mean, “Doody Head”! C’mon, these days, in some quarters, that’s referred to as the “D” word. Or is it the “DH” word…?
