Sometimes, things are wrong. At one point they may have been alright, and are now considered wrong, or, they always have been and ever will be just plain wrong. Oft times, these wrong things are also funny.

With that in mind, this endeavour features two main strands: the "Shelf of Shame" (books) and the "Screen of Shame" (film) and smaller strands such as "Sound of Shame" (vinyl) and "Miscellany of Shame" (various) - each showcasing items from my personal collection of bibliographic and cinematic oddities and curios.

Deemed shame-worthy according to varying criteria of wrongness, these humourous, surprising, and occasionally instructive items are therefore posted here for your perusal, amusement and edification. Enjoy.

Shelf of Shame #5a

(C)ANAL BOY: the sequel

I must confess that I was so eager to post this book I didn't actually bother to read any of it, and without a doubt I should have. Given the accidental re-titling, some of the text from the first page reads, I feel certain, a little differently than its author intended:

"Sixteen, Sean was, old enough to know it was folly to touch or even eye too closely what was not his... the butts were of ivory... each demanded that Sean reach out... that he feel the fitted curve of the butt in his grip, that he delight in its singular beauty..."

Or, two pages later: "The desire stole over him to touch one... to know the feel of it, so that when he was old he might remember and think to himself: I once held in my hand a pistol - such a rare, lovely pistol..."

Or two pages beyond that: "My own son, I am positive, could not have resisted the opportunity to examine such a beautiful pair."

Many thanks to the always hilarious Punky for noticing this unintentional lewdness, and pointing it out to me straight away.
