Besties!

“If Holden and Draco were friends, however, Draco probably would have already failed out of Hogwarts and ended up somewhere in the bowels of London, smoking cigarette after cigarette and drinking out of of a pocket flask…”

Would the real Holden Caulfield be friends with Draco Malfoy?

Some people seem to think so.

Maybe Malfoy is a good whistler?

The Real Holden Caulfield: Family Guy

 “Holden Caulfield is the man who calls Peter Griffin a ‘phony’ in The Kiss Seen Around the World, for pretending to play a self-playing keyboard. He later levels the charge at Neil Goldman for admitting to Meg he wasn’t going to jump.”

Family Guy Wiki
2011

This is Family Guy’s best literary cameo since Spider Man, even though it raises the issue of this.

But what about the real Holden Caulfield?
