Being a writer also means being an a-hole, apparently. (via)
Redditor valbee got this aggressively sexual opening message from an OkCupid user. When her surprised and offended response elicited a long, unintentionally hilarious rant about the meaning of being a writer, she felt the need to share the interaction on reddit, where it quickly shot to the top of r/OkCupid.
The dude, who claims to be "the most published person on the planet" has still not been identified, but commenters had some pretty good guesses: Stephen King? J.K. Rowling? God? My bet is he is the guy who writes the copy on the sides of packages of Pepperidge Farm cookies, because I understand that's the only way to actually make your living as a writer. Although why he'd be taping a national radio segment is anyone's guess (to promote a new flavor of Milano?).
Then this happened:
Yep. He used the same line on someone else! I don't doubt reddit's ability to find this guy (and also harass him and destroy his livelihood but nevermind that). Update to follow if they find out who it is.
