You Write Like A Lizard Apparently


According to The Rejected Quarterly--not my Bible, but maybe should be--The Acorn sent the following rejection to Richard Kostelanetz"The ability to string words together into a comprehensible phrase or sentence is what distinguishes human beings from a dictionary and the lower animal forms. When you have reached that stage in your development, try us again." Seriously?

If they are representing humanity, perhaps I will side with the lizards.

I'm not familiar with "The Acorn" but I'm hoping (for that writer's sake) that it's like "The Onion", and that this is snark.

Hmmm, I'm just wondering which 'acorn' so I can avoid them at all costs in the future.
