Brexit has inspired an erotic novel about a man and a "massive, sentient" pound coin


It was once impossible, we're sure, to identify the best line in the history of literature. Although your Moby Dicks and Pride and Prejudices were strong contenders, novels were simply too subjective to allow us to rank and rate them like Pokémon, or friends.

Until now, that is. Now we can confidently say we have identified the best, most phenomenal, stunning, and provocative line in the history of the written word. 

"The pound lost so much value that we had to make up for it by becoming pounds ourselves.”

Pounded by the pound

This is the entire premise of Pounded by the Pound: Turned Gay by the Socioeconomic Implications of Britain Leaving the European Union, a post-Brexit erotic novel about a man's homosexual relationship with a "massive, sentient" pound coin. 

Written by Chuck Tingle, author of My Billionaire Triceratops Craves Gay Ass and Pounded In The Butt By My Own Butt, the 4,200 word novella has become an instant success. Just check out this glowing review.

The book took "seven or eight" hours to write, and Tingle called the work "pretty realistic" in an interview with The Guardian.
