Bathroom Monologue: Literary Heritage in Five Lines

The teacher says, "For Monday I want you to read up to page 102 in Melville's Bartleby."

The student perks up. She asks, "China Mieville?"

The teacher thinks, "When did Melville go to China?"

The student thinks, "If I get out early enough I can get in line for the midnight showing of Inception. I hear the comic book was great."

Inception was not based on a comic book.


  1. Love this for so many reasons. Great work!

  2. This is different. Not your normal different, but a little weirder than that. MiƩville would be proud.

    PS: My "word verification" is "peaduche". May I challenge you to monologue on that, sometime?
