Fight Club-Inspired Acts of Idiocy: Trendy

An employee at a Texas school for the developmentally disabled has been sentenced to four years in prison for making the school's poor students battle each other Fight Club style. Well, to be fair: he's a trendy guy!

  • This guy, the Texas Terror: "The videos showed night staff instigating the fights at one of the facility's dorms, even kicking residents and telling them what to do." What a bunch of human cocks.
  • The Teenage UES Starbucks Bomber: "Mr. Shaw had bragged to friends that he was responsible for the bombing, [NYPD head Ray] Kelly said, and had started an underground fight club modeled on the one in the 1999 film."
  • The Republican Party's Tea Bagger Faction: "The coming revolution is akin to 'Fight Club,' the 1999 film that follows the struggles of day to day life for a regular guy who starts an underground fight club as radical and not terribly productive psychotherapy."
Three's a trend. Not to mention the fact that you can just go put "Fight Club" into Google News any old day and, bingo (for example), "Bloody Underground High School Fight-Club Exposed ."

That book was not even that good.
