Salman Rushdie Writes Limerick About Kim Kardashian's Divorce
Posted on November 2, 2011And you thought The Satanic Verses was blasphemous. That was nothing compared to this. After being challenged by a fan on twitter, author Salman Rushdie tweeted a limerick about Kim Kardashian's divorce. It all began when @CatNyugen tweeted: "@SalmanRushdie hey, why are you talking about literature and art, don't you know there's Kim Kardashian gossip to attend to?:)" Sir Rushdie replied, "@CatNyugen OK, I will rise to the challenge and offer my once-only, never-to-be-repeated Kim #Kardashian Limerick." Some of you may want to cover your eyes at this point -- here it is:
When asked later why he -- a serious literary icon -- wrote the limerick, he replied, "I was challenged. Can't resist a challenge."The marriage of poor kim #kardashian was krushed like a kar in a krashian
her kris kried, not fair! why kan't I keep my share?
But kardashian fell klean outa fashian.
Clearly, he is a man who loves to live dangerously. Can a fatwa issued by the Man Booker Prize jury be far behind?
