Can't Be Arsed To Have A Sense Of Humor

Guy pens a column: Ten Books Not To Read Before You Die. It's amusing, and introduced me to the phrase "can't be arsed," which, if it's a bit rude for regular use, I'll certainly be thinking quite a bit from now on.

Then more than 250 people write in to say they read those books and their lives were changed and how dare he!

I do not understand people. Can't imagine writing in to correct a humor column. Especially can't imagine thinking it worthwhile to be the two-hundred-fifty-second person to do so.
