    Reads like great satire to me. Had "Brian" actually been a moron of this calibre, I doubt he'd be referencing C++ (or had taken a class in it).

    "... I have taken alot (thatís two words, right?) of writing in college. It was mostly in Spanish and C++"

    I thought that was the funniest of the many obvious jokes in the piece.

    i could believe "satire", but class assignment? no. as i've probably stated previously, i've indulged myself in several creative writing/composition courses, even one that taught (rather pathetically, IMHAHO) how to write a novel, and although perhaps a HS basic English teacher might have assigned such a concept, a college or postgrad professor would most assuredly not.

    ...not to say that the professor wouldn't assign "satire" as a homework subject; saying rather that he wouldn't assign/accept such complete mockery of the writing process, and grammar in general; viewing it as poor taste (which it really would be, in that contex).

    Same here. Pretty sure that was my favorite bit, though there were a few good ones to choose from...

    you know the dumbest part of this? say the rant had been written and posted by a site member, we probably wouldn't even be talking about it all, except to be ranking him to the dogs and back.

    Ah, I think it's pretty obviously a joke. If the person were serious it would be one thing or the other--they'd either want a bunch of free stuff, OR they'd want to tell him what an "awful" writer he was.

    I think its entertaining.

    And, I think it is quite possible it could have been a class assignment--no one's claiming the guy got an A on it!

    no way on the class assignment...NO SERIOUS PROFESSOR would assign it. AT ALL. it ain't gonna happen. not for ANY grade. satire, yes. mockery, no. a piece of shit like this would've gotten not only an F, but, by any SERIOUS PROFESSOR, quite likely a zero grade for the entire semester.

    i think it's funny as hell. especially how his reason for king to listen to him is that king writes so much but brian has just read the book so it's fresh in his mind.


    'fess up MOW - it was you wasn't it.

    or maybe it was GWB.

    If it's mockery, I don't think it's of King, but people who think to criticize his work.

    He says he want more pirates, cowboys and ninjas. Obviously it's very much toungue in cheek.

    I wonder if he's read the Dark Tower books? We've got cowboys here and my mental image of Gasher was a pirate. We don't have any ninjas as such, but light-saber wielding entities... Hee, hee.

    After reading the posts here, I was expecting an uproar of laughter coming from me.


    I give it a C- and that's for the effort and time it took to write this.

    Default funny rant response

    I had to wait several minutes to begin typing this reaction as I was laughing so hard I was crying. Ooooh, that was refreshing. I thought youtube had all the funny stuff. Either this was from a 7 year old sneaking on his parents' computer or we really need to kick up education a few notches in this hemisphere. What college could produce such a moron? I have not laughed so hard in a while, so I am grateful for such people once in a while. Hopefully he isn't going into politics or wait, of course he will! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAACK! (extremely loud and obnoxious laughing while wiping tears.)

    Even if this was a fake rant, as my teenagers assures me, it was hilarious and worth reading for the sheer humour in it.

    Stephen King must already know that you can never have enough ninjas in a sci fi story about aliens! For shame, Mr. King! LOL

    I agree with "Randall Flagg." I think this letter is a parody, folks.
