There’s an overabundance of self-help books on the shelves these days. If I owned a dictionary, I’d probably say there’s a glut of them. But have you noticed how many of the latest self-help titles have swears in their names?
There’s How to Stop Feeling Like Sh*t, Get Your Sh*t Together, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck, Unf*ck Yourself, and Calm the F*ck Down to name but a few, and I’m starting to wonder how a guy like me – a guy who has made a career out of peppering sentences with F*cks and Sh*ts – can get in on this latest publishing trend and make some of that sweet self-improvement cash for himself… Here are some ideas.

B*tch, You Got Fat: Learning to Let Go of Love
This life manual is bound to get me a seat on Oprah’s couch. B*tch, You Got Fat: Learning to Let Go of Love is an instruction manual for anyone, male or female, struggling to leave a relationship with a partner who became unattractive by eating too many chips, contracting an annoying disease, or getting burnt on the face. Why stay with a washed-up pig when there are so many hot people in the world? This shit is writing itself. See you at the bank, baby – ker-chang!
The Tipping F*cking Point: How Little F*cking Things Can Make a Big Ol’ F*cking Difference
In this one, I’ve just taken Malcolm Gladwell’s best-selling book, Tipping Point, and pebble-dashed it with expletives: “Chapter Fucking Five: The Power of Context. A study at the shit-head University of Utah found that if you ask some jerk-off why he is friendly with some other dick-licker, he’ll say it is because he and his shitty dick-sore-having friend share similar fart-faced attitudes. But if you actually quiz these two ass-wipes…” Etc. I’ll have to clear it with Gladwell first (and no doubt cut the little nit farmer in on sales), but this is a winner.

The Girl Who Took s Sh*t In the Oatmeal
For this book, I’m doubling down on two fairly recent (and shameless) publishing trends by using an obscenity and the words ‘The Girl Who’ in the title. I’m not sure what it will be about; probably something to do with feminism, which means I’ll need to assume a pen name like Becky Fulbright, plus a fierce and unyielding air of indignation… which I already have, despite being an able-bodied, white, heterosexual male who gets paid to write pretty much anything.
