Some of you may remember my little Planned Parenthood media event, where they rejected a donation from me that would have saved one of their clinics. Then PETA swooped in and offered to take the money for a pretty cool idea. But since they are an awful organization, I countered them with the proposal to donate to a pet charity that was no-kill.
A lot of people misunderstood the point of my “Total Frat Move” review, so I wanted to explain what was going on.
OK, OK–that headline is complete and utter bullshit, but it made me laugh, so whatever.
This is the awesome story of what one of my former assistants, Jeff Waldman, has gone on to do after working for me. I had nothing to do with it and I get no credit for it, nor am I trying to take any. I’m just really proud of him and what he’s done, it’s incredible.
Since I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell first came out and became the huge success and cultural touchstone that it has, I literally cannot keep count of all the people who have tried to copy it in some form or another. Thousands upon thousands of people have started blogs about their “fratire” stories, and almost all are blatantly unoriginal rip-offs of mine.
I hear this from people all the time, “I want to change the world.” And then they tell me their plan to make the world better, and it is always changing the things that already exist (and invariably it is some ridiculous unformed pie-in-the-sky plan, like “make the world by creating awareness”).
