Lemony Snicket has posted on OccupyWriters.com in a series of comments regarding Occupy Wall Street.
Popular children’s book character, Lemony Snicket, has taken to the internet with 13 observations posted on the website dedicated to “undersigned writers” who support Occupy Wall Street.
“Thirteen Observations made by Lemony Snicket while watching Occupy Wall Street from a Discreet Distance” includes snarky comments penned by writer, Daniel Handler, whose pen name is Lemony Snicket.
Comments range from “If you work hard, and become successful, it does not necessarily mean you are successful because you worked hard, just as if you are tall with long hair it doesn’t mean you would be a midget if you were bald” to “People who say money doesn’t matter are like people who say cake doesn’t matter—it’s probably because they’ve already had a few slices.”
Handler has penned several children’s books, serving as the narrator of one of his most popular works, “A Series of Unfortunate Events.” Snicket is also the subject of a fictional autobiography, “Lemony Snicket: The Unauthorized Autobiography.”
Snicket also wrote “The Composer Is Dead,” a murder mystery,”The Baby in the Manger,” a secular Nativity story and “The Lump of Coal”which was published in USA Weekend. He also published, “Horseradish: Bitter Truths You Can’t Avoid,” a collection of humorous quotes from “A Series of Unfortunate Events.”
Snicket is currently writing a new children’s series containing four books due out in 2012.
Reportedly, other writers, Salman Rushdie, Neil Gaiman, Jennifer Egan and Michael Cunningham are among the over 100 authors who have joined the online petition and support of Occupy Wall Street.
