From Selena Gomez's Funny or Die skit to Jimmy Fallon's karaoke slow-jams, Fifty Shades of Grey has already gotten the parody treatment ten times over. It really was only a matter of time until a truly hilarious parody in complete book form emerged. And "Fanny Merkin," aka comedic writer Andrew Shaffer's, Fifty Shames of Earl Grey, which has just arrived in bookstores, seems to fit the bill perfectly.
The book follows the love story between Bill Gates' adoptive son, Earl Grey, and an "unsuspecting virgin" named Anna Steal. While Christian Grey is into classical music, fine wine, rich boy toys like his helicopter Charlie Tango and his boat, and sadomasochistic sex, Earl Grey loves ... Nickelback, Tom Cruise, Olive Garden, and BDSM, which in his world stands for "Bards, Dragons, Sorcery, and Magick." What the ... ?! Ha!
Oh, but it gets even better ...
