Everybody needs a good laugh once in a while, even if the laugh ends up coming at someone else’s expense.
This is why Web Watch occasionally wanders over to EMAILS FROM AN ASSHOLE to take a gander on what John Lindsay has cooked up.
Yes, this is another blog-to-book deal, and just like the others, this one is pretty funny.
What John does is troll through classified ads, Craigslist, and other online listings, and contacts the posters with ever-increasingly inane email conversations.
- There’s the guy who wants to collect only vintage alcohol. John offers him a “vintage” case of Natural Ice beer.
- John offers to barter his wife in trade for a guy willing to trade his 1994 Jeep Wrangler for something of equal value
- And the ever popular “you don’t need a sewer camera, you just need a midget to crawl through your pipes” response.
Oh yes, John is definitely an asshole. A funny asshole, but an asshole nonetheless.
