#2162: Literary Opinions

Literary Opinions

[Megan is walking with a finger raised toward Cueball, who is seated in a chair with a book.]

Megan: Literary opinion:

Megan: I firmly believe that William S. Burroughs, Hunter S. Thompson, Chuck Palahniuk, and David Foster Wallace are different names for the same person.

Cueball: …I see.

[Megan puts down her hand.]

Megan: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and Fight Club? Same book with different covers, I bet.

Cueball: I have both. Want to open them and check?

Megan: I do not.

[Cueball turns back to his book.]

Megan: Moving on: my next opinion–

Cueball: You should start a book club for discussing the books you refuse to read.

Megan: –is that E.B. White and T.H. White are the same person.

Cueball: Ok, that I believe.
