La Cuchara De La Mostaza / 5 June 2001

[A one-act play constructed from excerpts of emails I’ve sent over the past month, in reverse chronological order.]

PROFESSOR ELMER: And plus, I’m supposed to be reading and listening to lyrics at the same time? What am I, some super-cyborg? Screw THAT and also screw YOU.

MADAME 09: BOO HOO! That hurts my feelers! Don’t lash out at me just because your ignorance was exposed to the whole world!

PE: COME HOEM! Look, I can’t even spell, I’m so distraught.

M09: I was hard-coding when you were still sucking yo mama’s limp dick.

PE: She’ll be sort of draped around my shoulders like a mink stole.

M09: I assume I was allowed to tell you. Hoo hoo!

PE: Dude, that’s just sad.

M09: I just drank the shit out of that Code Red.

PE: Holy shitpants is this great.

M09: I’m eating ice cream and doing the laundry in your honor.

PE: Maybe it’d be less gross if my sentence was rewritten to be more accurate, something like: “It sure feels nice to type now that my fingernails have been clipped!”

M09: Mmhmm. Ahaha. Hmmm. Yes. YES.

PE: I’ll be wearing my Party Pants, as usual (they’re the plaid ones with the tear-away crotch, remember?).

M09: I know for a fact that is not the truth, so you better just eat delicious gummi worms.

PE: As for me, I’ve been concentrating my efforts on accomplishing two basic things: jack, and shit. And I’ve been doing a tremendous job, if I may toot my own horn for a second.

M09: I checked and evidently it’s a “mustard spoon.”

PE: You two-bit craphead! OK, I feel better, and I’m sorry for saying that.

M09: Hope all is well out there and tell Grandmama to pop a valium for me.

A novel called Chokeville and a beverage-review site called The Knowledge For Thirst.

A great deal of typing is collected in the Archive.

Articles and whatnot for other sites, including The Morning News, Wired, and McSweeney's, can be found in External.

I've been involved in a number of Epiphany Sink pictures.
