David Cross on his new book deal:
I am quite chuffed with myself to be honest and I hope all of this goes to my head. I suspect I will start wearing Chads and Dillupsworths and eating sticks of pure butter. What’s that? You say you don’t know what Chads and Dillupsworths are? Haha you fucking loser! My class is a better class than yours! I also hold great hope that this will finally (finally! Ed.) take the edge off of my “bitterness” (or rather “cynicism”, or “skepticism”, as I would call it, but that’s a debate I can have with all you Young Americans out there at a later date when you can learn to differentiate between bitter and cynical as applicable adjectives). It’s very telling that the first thing I wrote after I had the meeting was my fake biography for the back page. I don’t want to give it away but apparently I live in Vermont and I have an English Sheepdog. Fake, fake, and fake. All I do is make fun of stuff!
