Emails from an Asshole

Penn State students tend to do some pretty awesome things-a prime example is John Lindsay, who launched the super-popular blog last year. If you haven’t read this blog, you definitely should; it’s absolutely hilarious.

Lindsay poses as a customer or seller and responds to classified ads making inane, rude, and ludicrous offers to his unsuspecting, gullible victims. Some personal favorites include when he offers a girl looking for a summer job involving animals a job shooting horses on his farm, when he tries to barter his “whore wife” for a ’94 Jeep Wrangler, or when he tries to buy a litter of kittens to feed to his Bengal Tiger (which are legal to have as pets in PA with proper licensing, don’t ‘cha know!).

Thanks to the popularity of the blog, Lindsay soon received numerous book offers and voilà, we have Emails from an Asshole. Since its publication, the book has gained attention from Hollywood; John has even been asked if he would be interested in screen writing for comedy. But the Penn State student has a more immediate goal: graduating.
