The sun-shaped metal ring around Janet Jackson’s nipple shone down on the people working in the fields. It warmed them. This was the harvest season.

Lazy Pete was lying on his back in the grass, staring up at sky.

“You know, they say that if you follow the lines of the nipple at the center of the sun, there’s a secret code in there,” Pete was saying to his friend Jonesy.

“That’s just old superstition. Now don’t stare at it too long – you’ll go blind.”

“Now, Jonesy, I think that might be the old superstition.”

Jonesy walked off. Pete kept on staring, following the lines, letting the time slip away. The smell of Janet Jackson's hair gel filled the air. Her awful music echoed down from the heavens. Lazy Pete kept on staring. Little by little, he was beginning to unravel the secret code.

02/13/2004 Mr. Pony (4): That's fun.
02/13/2004 anonymous: thanks, pony!
02/13/2004 qualcomm (4): while the idea of using the recent janet debacle for comedy has a "let-me-tack-this-dilbert-strip-to-my-cubicle" feel, i laughed at this one.
02/13/2004 Jimson S. Sorghum (5): "Lazy Pete," is a good name. I also like "Now don't stare at it too long--you'll go blind."
02/13/2004 Phony Millions (4): yeah it's got the current event-thing going like Feldspar says, but it's got a twist and is creative and I definitely laughed. Plus, anything to ridicule that tired old has been. She should have known - who cares about her fucking tits really?
02/13/2004 Craig Lewis (4): Topical! Metaphysical!
02/13/2004 Mr. Pony: It was the "Her awful music echoed down from the heavens" line that made this old soldier laugh out loud.
02/13/2004 Jon Matza (4): I owe you half a star.
