Mike Tyson on Writing

Posted by @ 3:17 pm on December 16th, 2009

No such thing as great writing advice from writers. I learned most from candy and smothering and sitting on my ass.

As well, Mike Tyson’s got some knowledge:


“My main objective is to be professional but to kill him.”

“There are nine million people who see me in the ring and hate my guts. Most of them are white. That’s okay. Just spell my name right.”

“One morning I woke up and found my favorite pigeon, Julius, had died I was devastated and was gonna use his crate as my stickball bat to honor him. I left the crate on my stoop and went in to get something and I returned to see the sanitation man put the crate into the crusher. I rushed him and caught him flush on the temple with a titanic right hand he was out cold, convulsing on the floor like a infantile retard.”

“I really dig Hannibal. Hannibal had real guts. He rode elephants into Cartilage.”

“I try to catch him right on the tip of the nose, because I try to push the bone into the brain.”

“I could have knocked him out in the third round but I wanted to do it slowly, so he would remember this night for a long time.”

“I can sell out Madison Square Garden masturbating.”

“I’m on the Zoloft to keep from killing y’all.”
