White Coat, Black Hat
2Dec/100

And the Winner is . . .

Moses

Deut. 9:17: "And I took the book, and cast it out of my two hands, and brake it before your eyes." Because it SUCKED!

Congratulations to Ken Deville, whose Charlton Heston/Moses photo wins the White Coat, Black Hat photo contest. Deville is a professor of bioethics himself, so I'm betting that Carl stole a couple of his ideas as well. He'll be treated to his choice of the the 7 prizes we have on offer
.

Many thanks to everyone who participated. I was impressed, as always, at the outstanding number of talented Carl-haters out there.

As a coda, I would like to propose one more idea: A New Yorker-style caption competition. See if you can come up with a suitable caption for this photo, one that reflects some of Carl's key attributes (talentlessness, sanctimony, plagiarism). I'll get the ball rolling:

"Hey everybody, I wrote this puppy all by myself. That Burning Bush didn't have shit to do with it!"

Your turn. Use the comments section below to give your suggestions (and this is just for fun, by the way. No prizes. What am I, made of money?)

The Christmas Present From Hell

Worse than Krampus

One more day left in our photo contest!  Get your entries in soon!  Today's submission:

If you have been particularly unpleasant this year, beware:  This little turd may replace your annual lump of coal, your bag of hickory switches, or your journey with Krampus to the pits of hell.   And like a big lump of coal, it will burn brightly in your Christmas hearth.

The contestant writes:

I tried to scope out the placement of White Coat Black Hat at the Mall of America Barnes and Noble, but was advised by an employee there that not only was the book not in stock, but that it had never been published and does not exist. When I mentioned its review in the NYT, she advised me that the NYT is notorious for reviewing books that have not been released. Luckily, the good people at the B&N at Calhoun Village realize the book exists and that Carl and Whoopi Goldberg are asking the same big questions!

The contestant writes:

Forget Photoshop -- after reading a bit of WCBH I entered the search term "wolfman masturbating" into Google Images, and immediately found this genuine photograph. Quite what it amounts to I cannot say, but what I can say is that it brings us closer to the real Carl Elliott.
Congratulations on your work in exposing this beast.

Perfect solution to a wobbly table

Solution to a wobbly table

Entry #3 in our photo contest reminds us that if you think creatively, you can find a use even for something as worthless as Carl Elliott's book.  If you have a piece of wobbly furniture, well, the book's just sitting there, anyway.

Photo Contest – Entry #2

From the political to the scatalogical: Here is our next entry in the White Coat, Black Hat photo contest.

Hi there, I'm happy to see that at least one person shows what Carl Elliott really stands for. He just whines and whines about our products, but as the number 1 sales-agent of Immodium in Minnesota, I know perfectly well he uses our products when the need is there. Here is where I found his book.

This evening, we received our first submission to the photo contest. An outstanding beginning!

I will post these as they arrive, but I will leave out contestant's names unless they specifically tell me otherwise. That way, you can feel free to be as ruthless as you like.

Announcing the White Coat Black Hat Photo Competition

Photo competition

Smile, asshole!

Inspired by the excellent photo that showed up after Carl Elliott's Asheville reading,  the White Coat, Black Hat website is happy to announce its first contest.   Readers are invited to send us their most creative and insulting images of Carl Elliott and/or his book, White Coat, Black Hat.  Whether you find an interesting new placement for the book, or do a photoshop job on his cheesy promo pics, show Carl what you really think of him and his half-assed collection of stolen ideas.

Send your submissions to info@whitecoatblackhat.com. Deadline is November 30.  No constraints; any image is ok with me.  Hell, if you want to shove  that book down a woodchipper and put it on youtube, that qualifies too.

Favorites will be posted on the website.  And the prize?  Well, you could opt for a free copy of that piece of shit book, or much better, you can have your choice of any of the alternatives I've suggested for the same price (well, any except the Ambien).   If you choose a horse head mask over Carl's book, then so much the better.
