The Game is called Humiliation

Not having seen Rocky Horror Picture Show got me thinking about what other famous movies and books I haven’t watched or read. And I’m not alone in this. Reporters at The Telegraph in the UK like to play a game called Humiliation, in which they all take turns admitting books they’ve never read. The catch is they only score points when it’s a book that other people have read.

The winner of their most recent foray won by admitting to having never read Shakespeare’s Hamlet, which every other reporter had read. This game also makes me think of my buddy Ryan Stewart who always cops to having never watched so many classic movies. He’s not even ashamed which is the great part.

So what books or movies haven’t you read or watched? I’m having a hard time thinking of anything great off the top of my head, at least anything that beats Rocky Horror, but the best answers always happen in conversation. Most of the books I’ve never read are all children’s classics like um, The Narnia series or A Wrinkle in Time or even something like Bridge to Terabithia and that’s mostly because I was illiterate until the age of 15.

    Must be Mom and Dad’s influence…I’ve never seen Rocky Horror either.
