A vast public collection of real-life rejection
I didn't think it was that bad. A pretty thin joke that gets stretched too far, but that's pretty common with satire. Just look at the sketches on Saturday Night Live.
So if I just start using the "find/replace" feature on my word processor, can I become a satirist, too?
Foolishness??????I think this is very good satire, because at heart it's dead serious and makes a point.Which is: there's something wrong in today's publishing world and something should be done about it.Read this, folks. It's short.
It's not the message, it's the execution. Terrible.
Good idea, but I got it in about three lines, and then there wasn't much else. Now if only George Saunders had written something like this, then it would actually be funny . . .
Gough: ...That collapse in confidence is choking the flow of ideas that is so vitally important to our literature....Me: zzzzzz Hello, flow check anyone? I've tutored ten year olds who write with better flow than that piece has. I know it's supposed t be a spoof of legislation, but legislation is boring. zzzzzzzz
