Question

If I wrote a book comprised of the fake news and gentle satire blog posts, and added some more original material, would you buy it?

Depends . . . will it be printed in an ironic fashion using an ironic printing press and made from ironically recycled paper?

Phil said...

I would buy it.

As a poor, struggling seminarian, I would appreciate the fact that you wrote it, although I wouldn't buy it until I was ordained or kicked out. :)

Yes, I would, probably several copies, as long as it included those "Top 100 Ironic Reasons to be Catholic" posts!

Would buy it in a heartbeat, even on a salary similar to that of those at RSCU. However, my question is, as an anonymous blogger, how do you do the author picure on the back cover of the book?
By the way, the posts in the past couple have been great, thanks.

Tim said...

Yes, especially if it contained any of my winning (or losing) contest/caption material. Would you need any contributed material? I'm prepared to sign over all rights in order to say I'm published! :)

Actually it would make a great gift I would think.

I definitely would buy it and recommend it to my friends and family. I already have a link to your page at my blog. My wife has me hooked on your site. Thanks.

spiritualexercises said...

I definitely would. My wife has me hooked on your site and I read it regularly, even having it on my blogroll on my blogs too.

Bryan said...

Sorry, didn't mean to double post, but I love your site that much. In fact, I'm posting a third time.

Meredith Gould said...

Absolutely! Please see my email to you.

KaleJ said...

I agree with Tim. Throw a few "contributions" or captions from several bloggers. Then each of these gets to claim being published, they each buy the book, or 10 for family and friends and bragging rights.

Bingo, you have a success.

Or in the other case, I am a bibliophile so, yes I would buy it.

Leigh said...

Of course I would buy it! You don't have to test the waters on this. You know you've got a captive audience. Get a literary agent and make it happen you little ironic Catholic man, you!

I might... ^_^

You could get Diesel to help you with promotion. ^_^

SherryTex said...

I would buy it and give it as a gift to my father.

Is the Pope Catholic?
(Sorry, I had to...)

Athanasius contra mundum said...

I'd probably buy it.

The Ironic Catholic said...

Wow, folks, thanks for the positive comments.

I can't answer them all but--Paul, how about it is were illuminated and illustrated? ;)

Joel B. said...

I hear rumor that humor-blogs.com members have an outlet to sell their book through.

Not sure, just heard it said...

And...yes.

Allen said...

Assuming the price would be less than my soul... sure!

Allen said...

Oh! And... Anonymous? Yes, I believe the pope is Catholic.

Intrepid Mother of the Front Pew Crew said...

Yes, and I'll pay for Beez's copy too.

(Beez, I recommend that you don't take it to adoration. I made that mistake with one of Jim Martin's books. Thanks for answering God's call.)

Rufus McCain said...

I'd borrow a copy and "forget" to give it back to the lender.

Anonymous said...

Yes, definitely!

omg, YESSSS!

i love your humor, tremendously!

CMinor said...

Absolutely--I'm partial to hardcopy.

Jeannine said...

Yes, especially if you add more "Dear Communion of Saints" items and more "talk like a pirate" items!

Joe of St. Thérèse said...

I'd buy it, for sure.
