July 18, 2008 OP-ED CONTRIBUTOR Stuff Parody Writers Like  By JEFF JOHNSON THE book “Stuff White People Like,” based on the runaway Internet hit  of the same name, just made the best-seller list. Apparently, readers felt  they were lacking a definitive guide to white, upwardly mobile  individuals and their purported interests —“gay friends,” “outdoor  performance clothes,” “Barack Obama” and so on. If the road to a best  seller (not to mention what’s said to be a $300,000 advance) begins with  nothing more than a Web site and a list of likes, then here are a few  projects I plan to develop: STUFF GRANDPARENTS LIKE Anything cinnamon Any Brach’s candy Craftmatic adjustable beds Quilted toaster covers Water aerobics Buicks STUFF SERIAL KILLERS LIKE Windowless vans Death-row weddings to pen pals Clowns and/or clown paintings Rivers with swift evidence-destroying currents
