Omg I was waiting for this post. The Great Gatsby was so fucking stupid and is totally over-rated. Reading that book made me want to leave the beach. Gatsby should have gotten over that she didn't like him and realized that she was just a stupid golddigger. It wasn't about love, just money and power. He should have grown up and moved on like Bonn-o-Tron. I mean I have been totally smitten before but jesus christ it didn't last for like 20 years!!
Also, I think Gatsby was dapper and shouldn't have been worrying about the ladyfolk anyway.
