“It is now clear to me that the folks who miss the satire may be a tremendous source of income”

A superb post by Famous Monster in a thread about self-publishing:

One of these days I will get around to writing just the absolute most loathsome right-wing Clancy-esque military scifi I can possibly muster. I mean somewhere between John Norman and John Ringo and maybe Terry Goodkind. Like all about a guy who is the best at everything and has the most sex with the hottest girls and kills terrorists and does the most martial arts.

I abandoned the idea initially because I was worried that people would miss the satire.

It is now clear to me that the folks who miss the satire may be a tremendous source of income.

    I always wanted to make a film about a cop who goes undercover to get revenge on the drug dealers who killed his partner, and finds that they’re part of a larger operation involving bent government officials and Islamic fundamentalist terrorists. It would have a sweary hip hop and angry metal soundtrack, loads of female nudity and lines like “as a rookie they can teach you everything – except how to live with the mistakes [clenches fist and looks into the distance]”. Ideally, I’d like Nicholas Cage to be in it.

    It would work in both a satirical and non-satirical way :)

    You’re *absolutely* sure no one has made that already? I could have sworn I’ve sat through it at least once…
