A few class prompts have spiraled wildly out of control and into a story with a plot (gasp!)

It features a lesbian couple with a charming meet-cute, who decide they really need to hurry up the world in getting all peaceful and what-not so they can retire happily to a houseboat and not worry about the shitty state of the world.

Is the river boat pilot half of the couple heavily based on Lupita Nyong’o?

Does the carpenter half of the couple have an older brother who’s not-very-secretly part of fomenting a rebellion?

Do the siblings have a mother who has been really-quite-secretly fomenting a rebellion for longer than all these upstart whipper-snappers?

Did their father die in an assassination attempt on their mother?

Does their other father try valiantly but ultimately fruitlessly to keep everyone’s damned socks darned?

The answer is yes to all.

I have no idea where I’m going with this.

The single greatest mashup ever, not done by me, but creds to whoever created this work of art.

“This book gives me more information about penguins than I care to have.”

In 1944 a children’s book club sent a volume about penguins to a 10-year-old girl, enclosing a card seeking her opinion.

She wrote, “This book gives me more information about penguins than I care to have.”

American diplomat Hugh Gibson called it the finest piece of literary criticism he had ever read.
