Review: Fifty Shades Of Stupid by Poupon Grey



Pardon me, do you have any Poupon Grey?  From thoughtful essay to through skewering this next review takes a look at Fifty Shades Of Stupid: The Real Man's Guide To The World's Stupidest Book by Poupon Grey.  If you've read my review for A Million Shades Of Green: The Real Story Behind Fifty Shades Of Grey then you already know that that essay was actually written by an action-thriller author, Sean Black.  The funny thing is this essay/review is written by another author who usually writes "A Man's Man" type of stories, for you see "Poupon Grey" is actually a pseudonym (chosen exclusively to skewer Fifty Shades Of Grey with) being used by one Warren Murphy.  If you have no clue who he is Warren Murphy is the co-author and creator of the long running Destroyer book series, and its rough and rugged central hero Remo Williams.  (And that would be the Remo Williams in the books and not the sad adaptation that made it to the screen.)

To say that I immensely enjoyed this little piece would be an understatement.  Grey/Murphy takes trashing Leonard and her book and makes it into an art form.  The only thing I can say that I hated about it was that it was too short, and I can only but hope that someday Murphy will be brave enough to trudge through Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed and then resurrect Poupon Grey twice more to give them what they deserve.

Grey/Murphy provides such hilarious observations as:

"To get a better sense of the book, it might be better to read one page of it while vomiting and sticking a fork in your eye, because Fifty Shades is, quite possibly, the worst-written book you're ever likely to find, even in the dismal, dumb, unliterary world of porno fiction."

And when commenting on Christian Grey's life aside from bondage, as in how Leonard never really indicates exactly what he does at his multi-bazillion dollar conglomerate, Murphy speculates that:

"It would seem, therefore, that E.L. James' research and preparation for writing this book consisted of only one thing, daydreaming about the characters in the book Twilight."

LMMFAO!

Best of all, however, is when he turns his attention to that area that scares us all, Anastasia Steele's massive whisker biscuit:

"There is a lot of mention of Ana's pubic hair.  When given the image of a college senior, who's a virgin, sporting a massive bush, we think of an awkward, hideous, greaseball with zero social skills and no friends.  You know, a young sex author in training."

Wait a minute, was he describing Anastasia Steele, or young Erika Leonard with that statement?

LMMFAO!

Despite the fact that this is such a short work it is well worth the $0.99 price, and believe me I haven't even scratched the surface because Fifty Shades Of Stupid is hilarious from start to finish.  Mr. Murphy, I salute you, and I give this little essay Six Stars, and believe me it's worth every one.

Here is where you can get your copy of Fifty Shades Of Stupid: The Real Man's Guide To The World's Stupidest Book:

Be sure to check this one out, and keep a clean pair of underwear handy (and no it won't be because your "Inner Goddess" is weeping with joy either.  Hhehehehehehehe.)

See you after vyle!

  1. I think I'll pass on this one. It sounds like it is only funny if you hate E. L. James, and I'm indifferent. Anyway, I'm a fan of women with a massive amount of bush. Perhaps loving to go bush is an Aussie thing. :oP

  2. Um, everyone IS aware that Fifty Shades of Grey is an erotic fan fic adaptation of Twilight, right?? It reads like Twilight because its based off it...

    1. Yes, I do believe that slamming Erika Leonard from profiting off of fan fiction because she fell out of bed one day and decided to be a writer instead of producing Blue Peter or Teletubbies, or whatever God-awful crap that passes for children's television in the UK is one of the main reasons I slam her and her poorly written pieces of shit. I think that was also the point of Murphy's little essay as well. Some of us (writers) have worked very hard to get where we are. Sometimes that's on the best seller's list, and sometimes it's just right there so you're available to be read.

  3. "- and the cow goes moo." ~lol~

    I heard about & finally read this & see it's so homogenized that Target carries it next to the Bible along with Anne Rice's old 'fantasy' bondage books now so the edge needs sharpening.

    I think we're gonna go the opposite way & redefine a lot of upcoming ideas as a public and look carefully at quality not convenience. Many people carry this rubbish on their iPhone/Kindle/whatever device but they don't know it's plagiarized (borrowed if possible to believe), like the Hunger Games (can we say 'Battle Royale') and this rhubarb. I think Master Vyle's suggestions and reasons are sound and I think I've got enough on my Amazon gift card to drop his ideas onto my phone.

    Excellent blog & thank you for the suggestions.

    1. Yep, the cow goes moo, indeed. I totally agree, AFare. I am possibly yelling at the walls, however it does entertain a select few with broader minds from time to time. It's safe to pretty much say we're living on Planet Moron. I just saw a video at work titled "Training To Use Learing". WTF? Seriously? And BTW a big thank you to reality TV for putting Honey Boo Boo on the air. Now I can just sit on my couch and watch an obese redneck and her clueless family instead of going to my front door, opening it up and looking out across the street. Thank you, oh, thank you. Will the wonders of technology ever end?

  4. P.S. - It's Master Vyle for two reasons. There's two words. Think about it and it may come to some of you why I'm so hip on bashing Erika Leonard and delight in it so much aside from her shitty writing alone.

    2. You're a bad a Suzanne sometimes Aussie, I swear.

      Yes, I would love to introduce Erika Leonard to BDSM. And when I say I would love to introduce Erika Leonard to BDSM, I mean that no limits, ain't got no clue what SSC means, Christian Grey style BDSM she apparently thinks is SO HOT.

      Hhehehehehehehehehe.
