Now THAT'S One Lucky Meme!
In a way, it's a classically terrible meme: unless you're reading someone who simply glitters on every page (G.K. Chesterton, maybe), you're running a terrible terrible risk. On the other hand, it's not particularly onerous, it's over quickly, and you can tell right away whether or not you've got a winner. So I figured, what the hell.
I don't have any actual good books with me at work: I simply collect (for no particularly good reason other than that it's free) piles and piles--literally--of bad fantasy and sci-fi literature. So I just grabbed the nearest book, one which I assume no one has or will ever hear of. The book is American Meat, by Stuart Moore (London: Black Flame/Games Workshop Limited, 2005). And, for context, it looks like a role-playing-game-inspired, post-apocalyptic take on The Jungle, or else a gothy, cyberpunk retread of Soylent Green. And here is the surprisingly wonderful fifth sentence on page 123:
"Of COURSE I saw the monkey!"
I vote we stop the meme right there. How could it possibly improve?
