      Some crack definitely went into the making of this New Yorker piece.

        Ha! That's exactly how I remember this one, which I read two weeks ago. So many "wtf" moments, but a blast to read.

      OMG I laughed SO hard at this.

      I saw this and thought of the recent minimalism talk on here:

      If you teach a man to fish, he will spend a bunch of money on new fishing gear that he’ll use once and then leave in his garage for ten years.

      But then just cackled reading the rest. This was GOOD

        How far afield can a story go in a few short paragraphs? Yet how delightful! Suspension of disbelief in the interest of hilarity and insightfulness.

      For some odd reason, compelling! Perhaps its originality. The opening line is the hook - pun intended. Need to google Eli Grober, I’m intrigued.
