An Open Letter to SC

Uncle Tom's Cabin, though well-remembered and rightly so, would probably be more widely read today if there were a watermelon-fucking scene in it, no?

As a member of the New Sincerity Movement (in addition to other obligations), I will treat this question seriously.

I believe that the book may not have attracted the attention it originally did if the aforementioned scene occurred, and well may have never survived to be reprinted in the twentieth century.

Also, I think there are also other ways to also spice up a book.

Yes?

Maybe the only way to test would be to write such a book.
