Malcolm Gladwell, the zany-haired Canadian who loves to write bestsellers, just got meme-ified.

Cory Bortnicker, a comedy and copy writer, created a website that went viral yesterday. The Malcolm Gladwell Book Generator serves up a fake Malcolm Gladwell book that might as well be a real Malcolm Gladwell book. The timing is terrible for Gladwell who's been taking heat for his comments on the protests in Egypt. Though he'd had the idea for months, Bortnicker seized the moment and evidently built the site in just three days. And you can enjoy every last image in about three minutes. It's worth it.

For those who did get enough from How to Win Friends and Influence People, the updated, Don Draper approach.

Secondary titles are almost as much an opportunity as needless captions below self-explanatory images.

This one's a bargain.

If you're looking for a real book about the North Korean economy, this one's a page turner.
