What could give more voyeuristic pleasure than reading something like A Million Little Pieces, shaking your head at the guy’s idiocy and (maybe, if you’re that type) finding inspiration in his redemptive journey?
Finding out it’s mainly a whopper and watching the little dink try and defend his integrity on Larry King et al.? Yeah, that’s pretty enjoyable schadenfreude.
Something even funnier? Check out the tale of Mr. Jinx’s descent into the hell of his own compulsions, at Jim Treacher’s site.
