Vice Has Your Favorite Literary Characters As Phonies

Well, this is prescient.

Vice has a spread depicting all your most revered, beloved literary characters in vaguely humiliating poses. I particularly like this one of Ignatius Reilly from A Confederacy of Dunces trying to cram a hot dog and ice cream cone into his mouth simultaneously. Observe:

ignatius reilly vice

But is that humiliating? Is that not in keeping with the character’s Quixote-like heroism? It’s admittedly been a while since I read Confederacy of Dunces, but as I recall, it was pretty much about living your dreams. This isn’t everyone’s dream?

I’d say Holden Caulfield would really approve of this series, but they’ve got a picture of him jerking off on the toilet, too. Go check it all out. – Vice
