This is a nice story–is it a Rob Beschizza original and is this a first in such long form?

It’s an illegal remix of Borges.

Most excellently done!

My hat is off to you, sir. Brilliant on many levels.

Truly and utterly confused by this one. Is this reporting or fiction? Does it matter? If it’s a joke, I’m not getting it. Wikipedia usually fixes everything, but not this time. Embrace the confusion.

Thanks for the GIANT FUCKING SPACE PYRAMIDS.

Geeze thank you. I’m an old English major, and when I read this I felt the weirdest uneasiness but I knew I hadn’t read it before. Ah, but I HAD read it before . . .sort of. :smile:
