I don't know who this is...

that's gotta win me some kind of prize, right?

E!Online says this is Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino and that he is famous for something, so he just got a book deal. To write one, not to read one. Even though the story says he's holding a copy of Walden on purpose, and not at all thinking, "Wow, the Cheesecake Factory menus keep getting bigger, let's see what I want for lunch... 'that I did not use tea, nor coffee, nor butter, nor milk, nor fresh meat, and so did not have to work to get them...' what the hell kind of menu is this???"

But what's really good is the E! asks what The Situation would call his book, maybe The Old Man and the Situation? And then lots of comments add to this: The Situation in the Rye, etc.

But since we just suffered that recent trend where it seemed everyone was turning public domain works into horror novels, it seems like it would be a "good" idea to just take an old book and add in The Situation as a character and not create a whole bunch of new sentences.

Someone just get their butt over to Project Gutenberg and start editing, assuming The Situation got that trademark thing settled:
The Situation and Prejudice by Jane Austen and The Situation
Adventures of Huckleberry the Situation by Mark Twain with The Situation
The Dracula Situation by Bram Stoker with The Situation
The Situation and Peace by Leo Tolstoy and The Situation
Metamorphosis of The Situation by Franz Kafka and The Situation
The Situation, Old and New Testaments, by God and The Situation
Les Situàtionables by Victor Hugo and Le Situation
