'Guts' Short Story


#1

What......the.........fuck...........

Always been a big Chuck Palaniuk fan since one of my college professors made me read Fight Club in one night or he would fail me the next day once he found out I didn't know it was a book first. Of all of the books of his I read, I never managed to read Haunted until just know....and had no idea about the "Guts" short story.

If you never heard of it, just use google and you can easily find a copy of it. Don't hold your breath during it like he asks.

EDIT- here is the link from his website from when it was first published in Playboy

I’m glad I jacked off like a normal person.

I remembered reading this years ago.

Crazy, fucked up.

So… his sperm got his sister pregnant or no? Either way, fuckkkkkkkkkkkkkk


#8

that was brilliant. Funny that a few minutes ago I felt embarrassed for carrot-bottom

Just want you to know I’ll never forgive you for exposing my brain to the knowledge that this exists.

Hold on, none of you thinks this is real, right?

The only physically plausible story was the carrot one (plus the wax stick, never mind that it would melt and surgery surely doesn’t cost as much as law school).

His sister getting into a guts and shit-covered pool to take a dip? Getting pregnant through pool water? Tough chance buddy!
Even if he came into his sister during the perfect ovulation window there would have been a 25% chance of pregnancy, that’s as good as it gets.

The author is a fiction writer… No one thought it was real rofl. I don’t see what that has to do with anything though. It’s still fucking disgusting.

It is real actually, aside from the last part which I am guessing is embelished for the sake of the story. Palaniuk does pretty intense research for all his books(all the stuff about waiters jacking off into food from 5 star resteraunts in fight club he got from interviewing former disgruntled servers…).

For his book Choke, he was doing research by frequenting sexaholic anon meetings where he met a really skinny guy. He asked him why he was so thin and the guy told him the story.

When I was younger I remember there being a 20/20 episode all about warning parents of the dangers of prolapsing from kids sitting on the filters in kiddy pools here in florida.

Yeah I remember the scare about that too. Are you serious though the part about chewing through your own intestine was real?

And the moral of the story- If you are willing to eat your own asshole for one more breath you probably won’t enjoy either of them ever again.

It probably sounds more elegant in french.

Only one way to find out, I have a pool, you are more than invited to come over and try.

There have been numerous people who fainted in the audiance when he was reading it on a book tour back in like '03. The count got somewhere in the 50s by the end of it or something.


#18

I remember reading this in Playboy about 10 years ago. Even though I knew what was going to happen, it still sickens me.


#19

I remember reading it but I didn’t until I got to the sitting on the filter part. I didn’t re-read the rest. Shit makes me feel nervous and weird. hahaa
