    If you're famous, you can sell anything

    Jimmy Fallon's children's book, Your Baby's First Word Will Be DADA, is #8 on Amazon's best seller list and
    Despite reviews like this:
    I guess not everyone gets the joke.
    Dad: teach your baby to say Dada before saying Mama.

    That's it, that's all the book is supposed to be about. :p

    Hardly surprising. It's something I'm directly attacking in my MA dissertation, if you don't understand something by T.S. Eliot, you must be at fault - because it's T.S. Eliot. If you don't understand something in Simon Armitage, it's because he's a terrible poet.

    Ok, that's actually the case with someone like Carol Anne Duffy, who I don't think can even write, and it's not like Simon Armitage doesn't produce rubbish (why turn Homer into a dramatic dialogue?) but still, he's a decent enough poet.
