Random House Lies, The Saga Continues
I've documented many of these before on this blog. And now, as we prepare for the appeals court hearing next week, (April 11 in New York City), more and more lies pop out as we go over the filings one more time.
I'll not deal with any major ones until after the hearing, but one which just popped out right now comes from Random House's Rule 56 statement, point 129 on page 31 of the .pdf: "There are no sex scenes in Da Vinci Code, just a simply kiss."
Hmmmm, no sex? Simple kiss?
Perhaps the RH lawyers never read Chapter 74 of DVC (p. 311):
"On a low, ornate altar in the center of the circle lay a man. He was naked, positioned on his back, and wearing a black mask. Sophie in-stantly recognized his body and the birthmark on his shoulder. She almost cried out. Grand-père! This image alone would have shocked Sophie beyond belief, and yet there was more.
"Straddling her grandfather was a naked woman wearing a white mask, her luxuriant silver hair flowing out behind it. Her body was plump, far from perfect, and she was gyrating in rhythm to the chanting—making love to Sophie’s grandfather."
Hmmm ... "No sex please, we're British," now becomes "No sex please, we're Random House's lawyers."
