You guys, you may or may not know who Tucker Max is, and even if you know who he is, you may or may not know that his book, “I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell” is being made into a movie. For those of you who know nothing about Tucker Max (pictured on the left), he is the most vile, crude, womanizing, contemptible, salacious person on the planet. And, I TOTALLY LOVED his book. As a self-respecting woman, I should have hated it. But it’s so hilarious and outrageous that I couldn’t help but love it. Even though he’s a huge jackass.
ANYWAY, he wrote on his website about a bet that Michael Ian Black (pictured on the right) has waged with him. Michael said, “So Tucker Max, you drunk, misogynistic motherf*&%er – I am officially calling you OUT! I am going to fist f*&k every hole in your boozy little body until you crawl away like the sniveling little bitch that you are. YOU’RE DEAD!” There is more, and you can read it on MIB’s website. The whole thing is hysterical. And, if you browse around Tucker Max’s website, make sure to read some of the book excerpts so you can fully appreciate his wonderful wretchedness. It’s genius. And horrible.
So anyway, back to the bet. Priceless, right? And what’s even better is that Tucker Max totally loves that Michael Ian Black has called him out, and has responded in kind on his website. Here’s an excerpt:
“Michael, I have no problem helping you get the word out about your book (which I haven’t read but hear is pretty funny). But there is price to pay for trying to publicize it on the back of my book’s popularity. I accept. I‘m completely serious. I’d LOVE to fight you. I’ll even promise to show up drunk as sh*t. I’ll drink an unreasonable amount of alcohol before we fight–20 beers, 30 beers, whatever it takes to me plastered. And if you don’t think I’m drunk enough, I’ll keep drinking. As long as I am conscious and able to stand on my feet, I’ll fight you. And here’s the kicker: If you beat me, I’ll give you the next royalty check from my book. It should be about 150k, give or take agent fees and other things. I am completely serious. ”
And Tucker says more, but he ends it with this:
“And just to be clear: This isn’t personal. I think you are a funny comedian, and I really respect your work. I’d much rather kick the sh*t out of someone who deserves it, like Benji Madden or Brody Jenner. To that effect, I promise when I kick your ass, I’ll do my best not to leave any permanent damage.”
MIB has now responded on his blog. It’s now escalated into a total blog war and is completely awesome. Go read. Take your time. And then come back and tell me your thoughts. Only don’t get all preachy to me about Tucker’s hatred for women and his nastiness because I ALREADY KNOW. I can’t help that I like him. I just do.
