This is where things begin to spiral out of control a little. Using the in-you-face mass media quality of big screen could have detrimental effects on the, much loved, American bar-scene. Tucker max embodies this sort of ultra-asshole-proto-male. Now allowing proof, that his vulgar witticisms are successful in attracting the opposite sex, to seep out, will be enough to cause great ecological bar scene changes. Mimicry of Tucker's obvert assholishness will reach unprecedented levels. One specifically deplorable traits of Tucker's is his personal vendetta with those who are physically less fortunate. Now replace the scripted wit of Tucker Max with drunken mimicry and overblown boozed up egos and you have some seriously reprehensible behavior. Not to mention that the fervor for his up-comming movie will only be snowballed by the many protestors and activist who think he's simply a sleaze ball. Those people are just fueling the fire. His extremist nature is fed by people who hate him, otherwise who is he gonna say "blow me" to? Tucker Max's humor needs to be taken with more than just a grain of salt; it needs the whole biblical-turned-around-Lot sized pillar. If people don't see through him than we may just be melting the polar ice caps of douchbaggery, and that my friends is the Inconvenient Truth.

Zac Max on Tucker Max: An Inconvenient Truth
Well, I know the man has a legion of detractors out there and I don't mean to be one of those nay-saying activists, I'm not. I actually think he's quite funny, though I often wish I didn't. When his so called non-fictional prose was posted on a website the guy was mostly-harmless (to use a phrase coined by Douglas Adams), even when it became a book it was no threat to our population. Bear with me on this one. When he was simply a blogger/writer and went around recounting his tales of drunken debauchery, his words only reached as far as those who sought them out. Not everyone loves reading enough to scroll through page after page of blog entry. Though of course he amassed quite a following, because, readerly or not, plenty of people got hooked on his crude humor and probably got sucked into living a little vicariously through him (especially those escaping their bookish lifestyle). Now I'm sure a mid-sized cross section of his followers went out to bars and clubs and tried to emulate (doubtful successfully) his douchbaggy demeanor and super-up-front-with-chicks mentality. And now he's releasing a movie about his exploits.
