I recently posted the above photo on Facebook. I admit that I stole it from someone else on Facebook (my buddy Nick) and don’t know the original author. However, I thought it was the funniest thing I had ever seen and a work of genius. People who love books seem to enjoy it, anyway.
Now here’s the funnier part:
Shortly after I posted this photo and laughed my head off I received an email that MTV has licensed two of my band’s songs. What this means is that MTV can use the songs in any of their TV shows, including Jersey Shore. If this happens it would be an excellent example of poetic justice. One, of course, that I would encourage as it involves royalty checks made out to yours truly.
For those of you unfamiliar with poetic justice, it’s a literary device that involves irony. In my case, I poked fun at a TV show and then found out that I may now serve to gain financially from the show (or at the very least from the show’s network) making me something of a hypocrite. Now that’s ironic. And funny.
By the way, I still think the photo is hilarious.
