because it actually *didn’t* make Baby Jesus cry

The Da Vinci Code is the second most important work of the past decade, according to the Toronto Star.

Now, the Star means the book, not the movie, but the movie is part of the importantness:

But none of those other books sold upwards of 80 million copies, while being translated into more than 40 languages. None of them was adapted into a major Hollywood film that has grossed nearly $800 million, as well as serving as the template for a board game, a video game and numerous web-based challenges and quests. None provoked a denunciation from the Catholic Church on the one hand, a slew of imitators on the other and a bunch of parodies in between. None of the others spawned a cottage industry of ancillary titles, including travel books such as Fodor’s Guide to The Da Vinci Code and Walking The Da Vinci Code in Paris.

Or perhaps because the Illuminati are even more powerful than we realized: they’ve infiltrated the Canadian media!

This has been your WTF Thought for the Day.

    Three Questions:

    1) Who are these people that want to rule the world?
    2) How do you know that they have gone to Satan?
    3) Are you a pretend lunatic or a real one?

  • Paul

    If that is the 2nd most important book of the decade, then oh how the mighty have fallen.

  • So are you joining the ranks of professional writers like Stephen King and Stephen Fry who actually didn’t care for Dan Brown’s The DaVinci Code, MaryAnn, or are you attempting to make another point here?

    Personally, when it comes to conspiracy theories, I prefer Robert Anton Wilson’s Illuminatus trilogy but YMMV…
