Bookshops and libraries are for reverant, studious people right? You’d think so but you’d be wrong. It’s for horrible people.
I found this out when The Strand (famous NYC bookstore) recently hosted a Cards Against Humanity event, sponsored by Coney Island Brewery. This event was held in their Rare Books room, which is probably usually populated by the most intellectually discerning bookenarians. Not this night, though. This night it was just us horrible people with free beer and pretzels, trying to think up the most offensive sentences.
I didn’t know any of the people that I sat down with but we quickly became friends as we began to despicably insult each other and all of humanity in general. Nothing brings people together quite like beer and mutual offence.
