woeful's evil book meme


book wallSo —

I got tagged by Woeful with a book meme. Wow it has been a while since meming frenzy I was feeling all safe and then bam! Stealth Woe.

Here is the thing. The meme says grab the nearest book and turn to page 123 and I know people think I am kidding when I say comic books do not have 123 pages but really I am not the nearest book is a book of cartoons it is Creative Writing The Illustrated Guide featuring cartoons from The New Yorker. [It is a Christmas present from Gotham Writers’ Workshop, thanks Gotham Writers’ Workshop peeps.]

And it only has 86 pages.

So I will give you the last cartoon that appears on page 86.


mick stevens comic


How this works :

1. Curse the person who tagged you.
2. Grab the nearest book.
3. Open it to page 123.
[Watch out this is where it starts looking like algebra.]
4. Find the fifth sentence.
5. Post the next three sentences.
6. Tag five people.

I tag TJ, Sulya, Ginny, Kym, & Michele.

  1. Oh, man. This is so sad. The nearest book is The Last Battle, by CS Lewis. Great, I get the book that has the end of the world in it. Swell.

    Tirian had no need to ask which was the High King, for her remembered his face (though here it was far nobler) from his dream. He stepped forward, sank on one knee and kissed Peter’s hand.
    “High King,” he said. “You are welcome to me.”

    Oh, great. And now I’ve put gay innuendo into a meeting of the High King and the Last King of Narnia.

    I’m going to hell.

  2. This is perfect Max! Thanks for playing along.

  3. Lol, I don’t think anybody tagged me with this, which is good, since, I think the nearest book to me right now…

    Would be a Global Industrial Catalog full of power tool sales.

    You know if we mix Rain’s homoerotic C.S. Lewis quote with Jason’s global industrial power tools we are going to end up on Talk Sex With Sue, right?
