An Attempt At Naming All 50 Shades Of Grey


I have not read the book Fifty Shades of Grey, nor do I have any idea what the book’s plot concerns. It has, if only at some low level, pervaded the media for the past month or so, and so I know the rough details — I know that it’s an erotic novel of some sort, loosely associated with Twilight (but perhaps not explicitly?) and that women love it. Still, what the color grey or the many shades in which it comes has to do with an erotic Twilight novel is beyond me. Rather than actually reading the book to find out what it’s about, here is an attempt at naming all fifty shades of grey.
