Thought Catalog to Publish Terrible Book

Thought Catalog, a site for friendless 20 somethings who take themselves way too seriously, is calling for submissions for what promises to be an absolutely terrible book on HBO’s Girls. The Lena Dunham show, you see, has changed and shaped our culture. So Thought Catalog wants to publish a book about culture, change and shape. And culture. And Girls.

“Thought Catalog invites authors to submit proposals for a new book on the culture-shaping series,” explains a post on the site. “The final book will reach 15-20,000 words, and explore the show’s characters, themes, and cultural impact.”

Never mind the fact that there have been already been about 42,754 pieces that cover those aspects of Girls. The Thought Catalog book will be different, because it will be “More fun than a night of driving around in your mom’s Volvo with a bottle of cough syrup and a box of cold McNuggets.” We honesty don’t even know what that means.

If your manuscript gets chosen, your book will be printed by Thought Catalog Books, which has also published We Put the Spring in Springfield: Chronicling the Golden Era of ‘The Simpsons’ and Maestro Mario: How Nintendo Transformed Videogame Music into an Art. If that’s not an incentive to submit something, we don’t know what is.
