Malcolm Gladwell as ladies man doesn’t take a Gladwell book to understand

img-bs-top---macaulay-gladwell_085221878598“In his books The Tipping Point, Blink, and Outliers, bestselling author Malcolm Gladwell has dissected many inspirational underdog victories, but his own triumph over the opposite sex could well be the most inspirational of all. Since moving to New York in 1996, he’s cast his net wide and deep to amass a staggering tally of conquests. There’s been the poetess, the psychotherapist, the photographer, the filmmaker, the fact checker, the writer at The New Yorker, the bisexual literary siren….”

And they’re attractive women too!, or so claims Sean MacCauley for The Daily Beast.  Anyway.  I’ll save you the time from his annoying look at Malcolm Gladwell the seductor, and let you know that Gladwell gets laid many, many times in all likelihood because he’s a multi-millionaire best-selling author despite looking like Sideshow Bob. 

It probably helps that he’s smart, funny, polite, etc. 

Still, I’m sure there’s plenty of people who want to sleep with him just because.  Myself included?  No, but I had to think about it for a second.  He is Malcolm Gladwell afterall.  There’s no analysis needed to understand that.

    Unlike you, bro, this commentator got the joke.

      Well played sir. I gave the article a quick read and had such a visceral reaction to it, sort of confused by the absurdity of it. And I suppose as a joke, or satire/parody, whatever you want to call it… I dunno. I guess I expect something like that to be on The Onion and not the Daily Beast…
