Inane Muff Fact #227: When I first heard that Miss Harper Lee had climbed up on an untouchable cultural and literary mountain top, shimmied down her granny panties, squatted down, and took a HUGE STEAMING DUMP on it by writing and releasing a sequel to “To Kill A Mockingbird” — “Go Set a Watchman” — in which we find that despite being a most noble, egalitarian, awe-inspiring character in the first book, in his later years, ol’ Atticus Finch has de-evolved and become, instead, a motherloving STAUNCH, WHITE-SUPREMACIST, HATEFUL, RACIST SEGREGATIONIST, the very first thing I thought about was NOT what a profound loss to literature it was…but just how fucking UNBELIEVABLY PISSED the vast legions of smug, intellectual hipsters who named their little boys Atticus must be. Oh, and, trust me, there are MANY.

Personally, as a tubby smug intellectual asshole, myself…I would KICK SOME FAT ASS.


About muffybolding

Muffy Bolding is a mother/writer/actor/knitter/feminist/withered debutante who likes the smell of asparagus pee, and remains obsessed with the bathroom hygiene of her three children -- despite the fact that they are 23, 19, and 16. She is blissfully married to a cute Jewish boy who looks like Willie Wonka, but remains tragically in love with the dead poet, Ted Hughes. She has the mouth of a Teamster, and her patron saint is Rocco (pestilence relief.) Ms. Bolding lives in Southern California, where she enjoys typing words, making movies, and plucking the rings from the fingers of the dead. She was the co-creator and Editor-in-Chief of the award winning satire zine, Fresno Lampoon, and in between writing screenplays, carnival barking, and savagely threatening her trio of darling larvae with a wooden spoon, she currently publishes the zine, "Withered Debutante." More of her work can also be found in the anthology, "Mamaphonic: Balancing Motherhood and Other Creative Acts", the compilation zine, "Mamaphiles III: Coming Home", as well as in The Cortland Review and She is currently writing and producing for film and television, and working on a book of essays entitled, "Inside A Chinese Dragon." She has slept around, but not nearly as much as she would have liked.
