Oh no...not another bad book

I think I've set up a horrible trend for myself. A biology grad student that I'm friends with gave me this book today, saying I'd probably appreciate the ridiculousness:
Noooooooooooooo, not Ken Ham!!! What do I do? Do I try to ignore it? Do I even bother reading it? Just skimming the book was fairly amusing, in a scary sort of way. It's full of ridiculous cartoons and illustrations, which makes sense for the target audience...ahem. I actually have good books to read...but the stupidity emanating from my backpack is calling me. Gaaah! At least the Professor and the Dominatrix was just a failed work of fiction, not a book of fiction that people actually believe to be true.

Well? Should I be masochistic again, or hide this book away and forget about it?

  1. Why are you even asking? Your review of The Professor and the Dominatrix was utterly glorius.

    Maybe you should make book / movie reviews a regular feature on your blog. Kirk Cameron's "career" alone should provide you with years of fresh material.

  2. I looked at the picture and thought it was a joke...

    I'll read it for you and tell you all about the awfulness that you didn't have to waste your time on =P

  3. I don't know. It's Ken Ham. You should get a hazmat suit first.

  4. DO IT! DO IT! DO IT!

    If you want, we can make a pact and I'll read it too. :-)

  5. I must say that, for my own selfish reasons, I truly hope that you DO give it a quick read. I'm sure that we can all look forward to your brilliantly scathing review. I attempt such things myself, from time to time, but I am often far too annoyed by my inability to argue back at the author regarding his or her more conspicuously foolhardy or downright inane assertions—or, barring that, to simply reach out, grab the author by the lapels, and give him or her a good shake.
