You May Be Fat, But They Have a Book Deal

Our video guy Richard Blakeley and his ladyfriend Jessica Amason, the Larry and Althea Flynt of junk-food porn, have a book deal! HarperStudio has purchased publishing rights to Tumblr This Is Why You're Fat.

We hear that the couple netted a "decent" sum in the deal. Whatever that means, it's probably still more than Blakeley's making here in a year. So there's that.

Anyway, good for them! Yet even more encouragement for all of us to start niche, gimmicky blogs in the hopes that they may one day end up on the lucrative Urban Outfitters bathroom reading book table. Congrats you two. You finally got yourselves a piece of the meat cake.

Also, we are jealous and we hate you.
