Banned Books

Finally, something decent on Yahoo Answers: Is it OK to run an illegal library from my locker at school? [via]


totally fake.

As if the chatty "how awesome am I" non-question wasn't enough of a clue, the user's previous question asks for lists of banned books, and the ones in the post are lifted straight from the fake Palin list.

That's what I was thinking! She's too well spoken, has too mature a grasp on the various ramifications of the scenario, and most tellingly, the few token misspellings are too deliberate. Catholisism, c'maaaan. And that somebody like that would worry enough about whether it was "right" or not doesn't smell right. I think it's a psychology experiment or a sassy blogger out for lulz that didn't really pan out.

They banned The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy? Why? Not because Adams was an atheist?
