What is this I don’t even

Though the mailman brought this, it does not appear to be either a bill or an advertisement. There are words scrawled all over it, and there is a cryptic inscription at the bottom: JOB. It’s as if someone took an email and printed it, by hand, on a piece of paper, and then shipped that piece of paper to me.

    That’s a weird enough notion to have, but what kind of person would actually execute it?

    Part of me suspects that ink-and-paper… thing… is one component of a large and complex gambit by this ‘J O B’. A clue he has sent out into the world so he can be traced back and captured, from which captivity (in, probably, a glass prison cell) he can quietly taunt us before escaping in spectacular and lethal fashion to launch the next phase of his diabolical plan. Call it a hunch.

    In happier news, I’m glad to see you introducing a new generation of readers to The Godsbody Pledge (?).

    This old scene from Star Trek has been on my mind lately:

  4. Nice.


  5. Damn this is funny.

    Hey Korrektiv fellows, I like your style. And I’d like to throw a bit of absurdity your way. Visit http://www.michaelhoran.net/other-writings for a questionable piece of “creative non-fiction” (whatever that is) titled “Being Nominal.” Pass it on.
