Wow, this is huge. Perhaps it should be moved to UnBooks. Icons-flag-au Sir Cs1987 UOTM. t. c 04:19, 3 May 2007 (UTC)

By naming conventions it probably should as it's fiction, although I'm not going to fuss one way or the other. By the way, this isn't exactly original work - it comes from [1]. But I'd support leaving it here because it's good and now has attribution too! --Strange (but) Untrue  Whhhy?Whut?How? *Back from the dead* 12:05, 2 July 2007 (UTC)
Well I'd say it's better not referred to as a book, as it's a shaggy dog story. The whole point is that it's a massively long joke with a really bad punchline. It's mostly to see how long someone will wait to hear a "joke" that doesn't seem to be going anywhere, and by calling it a book from the start, it kinda defeats the purpose. Though with this new-fangled internet, I suppose you can see how long it is from the start. Ah well. Whatever. Spang talk 12:17, 02 Jul 2007
