O.J. Simpson's If I Did It: Five Murderous Manuscripts We Would Rather Read

Yesterday, TMZ reported that an ultra-rare first edition of O.J. Simpson's "hypothetical" recount of the gruesome 1994 double-murder of ex-wife Nicole Brown and her lover, Ron Goldman, had hit the metaphorical shelves of eBay.

Our first (and, really, only) question is: Who the f*ck cares?

What's next? A reprint of the Starr Report? How is this the year 2013, yet we are somehow blogging about O.J. Simpson killing people. Blogging barely even existed when he (hypothetically) did it!

Of all the psychopathic hitmen in the history of slaughter, O.J. is potentially the least interesting. He did it. He got away with it. And he continues to somehow profit from the whole grizzly affair. The end.

After the jump: Five murderous manuscripts you're more likely to find next to our toilet than If I Did It.
