- *Stares at flum in drone-like trance* <br>"I am
American Viewing Audience. <br>Please say yer post again.
<br>Say it in small words. <br>Stop being wordy. <br>My
head hurts. <br>The pain is like...picky and..hurty
and...painish. <br>Whats another word for
painish?"<br>*sarcastically* I am everyman, I feel their agony (another word
for 'painish'). I know the terror of the verbose. I
have felt the sharp sting of being just intelligent
enough to know how unintelligent you are, for their sake
we should burn the books, close the institutions of
higher learning and speak in simple subject-object-verb
- I can't get with Fer-de-Lance. Finishing the last few chapters seemed
like work when I re-read it a couple of months ago. Maybe it's
because Wolfe and Archie are brand-new in FdL. From there they evolve
quickly, and by the time Too Many Cooks rolls out they've become the
familiar characters who compel page-turning.
Others on my list of least-favorites are Disguise for Murder and Help
Wanted, Male. Heck, listing the bottom-dwellers hurts my head even
more than picking three or four favorites does.
