“This is no game”: the pep talk to end all pep talks (if only, if only)

January 7th, 2006 · No Comments

This is no game. You might think this is game, but, trust me, this is no game.

This is not something where rock beats scissors or paper covers rock or rock wraps itself up in paper and gives itself as a present to scissors. This isn’t anything like that. Or where paper types something on itself and sues scissors…

…and that’s just the beginning of a glorious Jack Handey rant, in this week’s New Yorker. Read all the way to the end, and just one more thing.

When you send Jack his $500, send me some too!

Thanks to Bruce Sterling* for the link. And, gratuitously except that you shouldn’t miss Bruce Sterling’s own rant-a-thon from SXSW 2003, thanks also to Cory Doctorow for transcribing it.
