Lemony Snicket responds to Lauren Conrad's video.



In case you haven’t been following the literary police blotter today, here’s an update. Book-lovers around the web were shocked to see video footage of The Hills-star-turned-craft-maven Lauren Conrad brazenly dismembering a set of lovely hardcover volumes, using their spines in the unholy creation of something she gleefully called a “unique storage space” (storage for what, we shudder to think).

When book advocates rose up in protest of the gruesome atrocity, Conrad responded by removing the episode of her DIY crafting show from YouTube. But luckily the sleuths over at BuzzFeed (who originally broke the story), managed to preserve the image above.

You will notice that the book being savaged is from the Series of Unfortunate Events saga by Lemony Snicket. We reached out to the elusive author through his publicist, and he responded with the following comment:

It has always been my belief that people who spend too much time with my work end up as lost souls, drained of reason, who lead lives of raving emptiness and occasional lunatic violence. What a relief it is to see this documented.

Snicket may be relieved, but to our mind, this brutal event was unfortunate, indeed.
