“The Portentous Clan of the Homunculi had scheduled a club meeting for 8 p.m. in the recreation room. But there was a scheduling mix-up with the Oracular Cult of the Polyphemes. After some last-minute phone calls with the Eschatological Cabal of The Regular, the secretary’s of the respective organizations managed to work something out. The Portentous Clan of Homunculi switched days with the Oracular Cult of the Polyphemes and the Eschatological Cabal of The Regular, nice bunch of guys, agreed to push their meeting to 9 p.m.

Which I guess is all a long way of saying that I’m going to be late for dinner because someone’s got to lock-up. I know, I know. Can I pick anything up on the way home? Ok. Love you too, honey. Bye-Bye.”

03/17/2004 Will Disney: well, it certainly is strange!
03/17/2004 Mr. Pony: Will, I've really grown attached to your gee-golly opening comments.
03/17/2004 Ewan Snow (4): When I was a freshman, I had a literature professor with a heavy Russian accent who was always saying texts were "totally eschatological". The combination of his accent and me not knowing what eschatological meant made it seem as if he were claiming everything we read was actually about poop. I just nodded in agreement. As for this (I assume Lerpa) short, I'd say it's borderline three material. But I'll round up for brevity. Maybe it should have ended with the first sentence of the last 'graph.
03/17/2004 qualcomm: not my short.
03/17/2004 John Slocum (4): I felt like I was being included in something important as I read this.
03/17/2004 Jimson S. Sorghum (4): I would have given it 5 if you had written "rec room" instead of "recreation room."
03/17/2004 qualcomm (3): The Lerpa is unmoved
03/17/2004 Ewan Snow: Does The Lerpa have to refer to itself in the 3rd person?
03/17/2004 Dylan Danko (3):
03/17/2004 qualcomm: what's Lerpa?
03/17/2004 annebot (2): Lerpu is the Finnish term for 'floppy disk' and more commonly used as 'flacid penis' in Finland. Hope this helps. Perhaps Lerpa is the plural form?
03/17/2004 Moe-Ron (5): anything with a humoncular mention gets my vote.
03/17/2004 anonymous: Yeah, you're right about that rec room thingy Mrs. Sorghum. I plum out thunk myself on that one.
03/18/2004 Mr. Pony (4): I like eschatology.
03/18/2004 Benny Maniacs (4): Wonderful dynamics, shear carpal stamina is astounding.
03/22/2004 mr.coffee: I'm afraid I'm on to you Scoop. This material was lifted straight from the pages of the ever popular sci-fi novel, Hypooperion. I rather dissapointed!
03/25/2004 anonymous (1): Too easy a target. Reliance on "big" words; banality of domesticity, ETC.
