    Alright, Chuck Palahniuk is a writer. He's written some pretty amazing books, one of them being FIGHT CLUB. My favourite books from him are "Invisible Monsters" and "Survivor". I recently picked up a copy of "Choke", and am currently reading this sack of satire. His latest book is called "Snuff" and it's about an ex-pornstar trying to get back into the business, and ending it with breaking a world record by having sex with something like 600 guys in a row.

    The following short story is titled "Guts". It's been featured in Playboy magazine (a lot of his writing has), and it came from one of his books called "Haunted". IMO, "Haunted" sucked, but this story has made people faint at public readings, so it's definately a good read. You should read it too!

    Last warning...

    I also love this. "Guts", not so much (though it's an interesting read).

    You so did! I remember, I read it in the morning, then kept thinking about it all day then in the evening I posted something like "I wonder what would've happened if he swallowed his intestines"

    That has been on here before I think WeaponxXx might have posted it, but don't count me on that. I know I have read it on here though.

    The only thing that moved my stomach was the rod deal. Until I get some proof on that, I'm calling it bogus.

    Choke happens to be my favorite book by him. With fight club as a close second.

    Lullaby was also a good read as well.
    And Diary was very good.


    Invisible monsters was ok, not my favorite at all.

    ^ That's epic Lulz right there.

    Edit: Good story, wasn't sure if I wanted to read it after I saw this was a ScuberSteve Production (The distinct scent of 4chan wafts off of him) but I'm glad I did.
