posted by grouse at 9:30 PM on October 21, 2008


A few months ago the caps lock on my laptop broke and my cheap-ass bosses were too lazy to fix it for a few weeks. I think I permanently twisted my pinkie from holding down the shift key for hours on end. ON ANY OTHER DAY THAT STORY WOULD BE SAD, BUT NOT TODAY. THANK GOD FOR CAPS LOCK DAY.

IN HONOR OF THIS SPECIAL DAY I PRESENT TO YOU THE ADVENTURES OF AGENT HOWIE #2, ONLY THIS TIME ALL IN CAPS!!!

---

AGENT HOWIE SUNK EVEN DEEPER INTO HIS RECLINING CHAIR, A STIFF DRINK IN HIS HAND. AS HE DID THE MEMORIES OF HIS DEAD COMRADES SWELLED ONCE MORE TO THE SURFACE. A DYING FIRE CRACKLED QUIETLY IN THE FIREPLACE NEARBY. WERE IT NOT FOR ITS EMBERS AND THE POURING RAIN OUTSIDE HITTING THE WINDOW OF HOWIE'S MANSION, THE SCENE WOULD HAVE BEEN DEATHLY SILENT. HOWIE WAS A BROKEN MAN.

THE INVASION OF LIECHTENSTEIN HAD FAILED TERRIBLY AFTER THE AGENCY'S ARMIES WERE MET WITH DOGGED RESISTANCE*. IT WAS AN UNMITIGATED DISASTER, BUT THE CONSEQUENCES FOR HOW WERE MORE THAN JUST A BLOT ON HIS PERMANENT RECORD. EVER SINCE HE HAD RETURNED HOME, THAT ONE HORRIBLE IMAGE WHICH HAD MANAGED TO BURN ITSELF INTO HIS RETINAS KEPT HAUNTING HIM. IT WAS BAD ENOUGH TO SEE THE PLATOON HE HAD CO-COMMANDED DIE ALL AROUND HIM, BRAVE YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN TORN TO SHREDS IN A HAIL OF ENEMY BULLET FIRE, BUT IT WAS THE DEATH OF AGENT BABYGURU THAT TORE AT HOW'S SOUL MOST STRONGLY. EVEN NOW HOWIE COULD SEE BABYGURU, HIS LONG-TIME SECRET COLLABORATOR ON PROJECT METAFILTER, DEAD ON THE GROUND IN THE STREETS OF ESCHEN, BLOODY AND WITH A MASSIVE HOLE AT THE BACK OF HIS HEAD. IT WAS AN IMAGE THAT HOWIE KNEW WOULD STAY WITH HIM FOR A VERY LONG TIME.

THE IMAGE CONTINUED TO LINGER AT THE FOREFRONT OF HIS MIND, TORMENTING HIM UNCEASINGLY UNTIL HE COULD BEAR IT NO MORE! "WHY!!!" HE SCREAMED, SLIDING OFF OF HIS CHAIR AND FALLING ONTO HIS KNEES. TEARS STREAMED DOWN HIS FACE. "THAT STUPID KID! WHY'D HE DO IT? IT'S NOT FAIR! IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN ME! IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN ME!!!" HE PLACED HIS HEAD IN HIS HANDS AND SOBBED.

OUTSIDE THE RAIN EASED, BUT THE FIRE CONTINUED TO CRACKLE SOFTLY.

THE ANGER BUBBLED UP INSIDE OF HIM AS HE GRIEVED AND THEN IT VIOLENTLY EXPLODED. IN A FIT OF RAGE HE GRABBED HIS GLASS FULL OF BOURBON AND THREW IT INTO THE FIREPLACE. THE GLASS SHATTERED AS IT HIT THE BRICKS AND THE FIRE WELCOMED THE NEW SUCCOR, ROARING INTO LIFE AND ILLUMINATING THE DARKENED ROOM. IT'S HEAT BEGAN TO LAP AT THE COLD SKIN OF AGENT HOWIE'S FACE AND JUST AS THE FIRE HAD ILLUMINATED THE ROOM, IT SOMEHOW SHONE A LIGHT TO THE ANSWERS HE HAD BEEN SEEKING. IN THOSE ROARING FLAMES HOWIE REALISED THE ANSWER WAS NOT IN THE BOOZE. IT NEVER HAD BEEN. THIS WAS NO WAY TO LIVE. IT WAS AS IF THE FIRE, RENEWED AND ALIVE, WAS A METAPHOR FOR HIS OWN CURRENT PREDICAMENT. A METAPHOR ON HIS LIFE.

GETTING UP ONTO HIS FEET, HOW COULD FEEL THAT FIRE INSIDE HIS SOUL ROARING TO LIFE ONCE AGAIN. "FUCK IT ALL!" THOUGHT HOWIE. "GET A HOLD OF YOURSELF MAN! REMEMBER WHO YOU ARE!" MAKING FULL USE OF THE MENTAL TRAINING PROVIDED TO HIM BY THE AGENCY, HE CLEARED THE CLOUDS IN HIS MIND AND REMEMBERED WHAT IN REALITY HE HAD NEVER REALLY FORGOTTEN. HE WAS NO QUITTER. HE WAS AN AGENT. AN AGENT OF THE AGENCY; A HARDENED PROFESSIONAL WHO WAS TRAINED TO KILL (AND OFTEN DID). HE WOULD NOT TAKE THE DEFEAT IN LIECHTENSTEIN, SNATCHED FROM WHAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE CLAWS OF VICTORY, LAYING DOWN. NO; IT WAS TIME FOR WHAT HE WAS BEST AT; COLD, BLOODY, MINDLESS REVENGE. AND AS ALWAYS, PROJECT METAFILTER WAS THE KEY TO GETTING IT.

WITH THE KIND OF ENERGY THAT WOULD HAVE SEEMED UNTHINKABLE ONLY MOMENTS BEFORE, HOWIE BURST INTO ACTION AND RAN FROM HIS STUDY TO HIS COMPUTER ROOM, LOCATED IN THE NORTH WING OF HIS PALACIAL MANSION. AND THEN, AS HE HAD DONE MANY TIMES BEFORE HE SWITCHED ON THE COMPUTER MONITOR ATTACHED TO THE SYSTEM WHICH MONITORED THE POSTINGS AND ACTIVITIES OF SEVERAL HUNDRED UNKNOWING MEFITES. SCROLLING THROUGH 'META', HE QUICKLY FOUND WHAT HE WAS AFTER. IT WAS 'THREAD 12516', A SEEMINGLY INNOCUOUS POST THAT DISCUSSED BAUERSFELD AND SNELSON. BUT HOW'S TRAINED EYE KNEW IT MEANT SO MUCH MORE. CLICKING ON THE THREAD AND SCROLLING DOWN THROUGH ITS COMMENTS, IT SPOKE TO HIM IN A LANGUAGE THAT ONLY HE COULD UNDERSTAND (WITH THE POSSIBLE EXCEPTION OF OPERATIVE R). THE THREAD TOLD HIM THAT BABYGURU'S DEATH WAS NOT IN VAIN. IT TOLD HIM THAT THE AGENCY NEEDED TO ACT QUICKLY TO RESTORE ITS HONOUR AND ACHIEVE ITS ULTIMATE AMBITIONS. AND ABOVE ALL IT TOLD HIM THAT THE ANSWER TO ALL HIS PROBLEMS RESTED, PERHAPS IRONICALLY, IN YET ANOTHER PRINCIPALITY.

AND IN THAT MOMENT, THE INVASION OF ANDORRA HAD ALL BUT BEGUN…

* SEE 'THE ADVENTURES OF AGENT HOW #50: LICKED IN LIECHTENSTEIN', WHEREIN THE AGENCY FINALLY INVADES THE PRINCIPALITY BUT FINDS THAT THEIR PRE-WAR INTELLIGENCE WAS GRAVELY FLAWED, WITH TRAGIC CONSEQUENCES.

AND CAPSLOCK EXISTS THAT ONE MAY RECOVER THE SENSATION OF LIFE; IT EXISTS TO MAKE ONE FEEL THINGS, TO MAKE THE CAPS CAPPY. THE PURPOSE OF CAPSLOCK IS TO IMPART THE SENSATION OF THINGS AS THEY ARE PERCEIVED AND NOT AS THEY ARE KNOWN. THE TECHNIQUE OF CAPSLOCK IS TO MAKE OBJECTS 'UNFAMILIAR,' TO MAKE FORMS DIFFICULT, TO INCREASE THE DIFFICULTY AND LENGTH OF PERCEPTION BECAUSE THE PROCESS OF PERCEPTION IS AN AESTHETIC END IN ITSELF AND MUST BE PROLONGED. CAPSLOCK IS A WAY OF EXPERIENCING THE CAPSLOCKNESS OF AN OBJECT: THE OBJECT IS NOT IMPORTANT.

REMEMBER WHEN YOU SAW LOST HIGHWAY IN THE THEATER ON A DATE WITH THAT CUTE PUNK ROCK GIRL WHO NEITHER OF YOU HAD ANY IDEA WHY SHE WAS WITH YOUR PLAIN WHITE BREAD VANILLA ASS AND WHO YOU DIDN'T CALL BACK RIGHT AWAY AND WHO THEN GOT PISSED AND RIGHTFULLY SO AND TOLD YOU TO GET LOST BUT SHE WAS A GREAT KISSER SO WHAT WERE YOU THINKING I MEAN SHE HAD THE "THREE LEGS OF MAN" TATTOOED ON HER STOMACH AND RODE A MOTORBIKE, ANYWAY IN THE MOVIE THERE'S THAT PART WHERE THE COPS AT LEAST I THINK THEY WERE COPS SAID WHILE SURVEILLING THAT DUDE THAT HE "GOT MORE PUSSY THAN A TOILET SEAT" WELL I KINDA LAUGHED BUT THAT SAYING HAS KIND OF BUGGED ME SINCE AS THOUGH I DON'T HAVE THAT "EQUIPMENT" WHEN I SIT ON THE TOILET UNLESS THINGS ARE GOING REALLY WRONG MY GENITALS DON'T ACTUALLY TOUCH THE SEAT WHICH MEANS THAT THE SEAT, WHEN SAT ON BY A WOMAN OF THE FEMALE PERSUASION DOESN'T ACTUALLY GET ANY, I MEAN IT'S NEARBY AND KINDA PROBABLY HAS AN OK IF WEIRD VIEW AND ALL BUT WHEN YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT "PUSSY" NEARBY ISN'T MUCH MORE HELPFUL THAN LIGHT YEARS AWAY, REALLY--I'VE STOOD NEAR DEBBY HARRY AND NEARBY JUST KINDA WAS MEH WHEREAS RIGHT THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN MUCH BETTER EVEN IF THE WAIT STAFF WOULD HAVE RAISED THEIR EYEBROWS AND SOME DINERS INCLUDING DEBBY HERSELF WOULD HAVE BEEN PUT OFF THEIR FOOD, BUT I SUPPOSE THAT'S AN OK PRICE TO PAY FOR "PUSSY" WHICH ISN'T A WORD I USE NORMALLY BUT SINCE THIS IS REALLY ABOUT THE TOILET SEAT AND APPARENTLY THAT'S THE TERM IT PREFERS I GUESS I'LL RUN WITH IT, BUT I STILL WOULDN'T EVER USE THE TERM, FOR EXAMPLE, ON THE PHONE WITH MY MOTHER BUT I GUESS I PROBABLY WOULDN'T USE PROPER SCIENTIFIC ANATOMICAL TERMS EITHER SINCE I'D RATHER BE REJECTED BY THOUSANDS OF CUTE PUNK GIRLS THAN HAVE A SINGLE PHONE CALL WITH MY MOTHER WHERE THE CONVERSATION INVOLVES ANYONE'S GENITALS BUT ESPECIALLY HERS OR MINE OR MY FATHERS OR MY BROTHER OR HIS WIFE OR KIDS OR REALLY ANYONE'S UNLESS SHE KNOWS DEBBY AND HAS A C. 1980 POLAROID WHICH REALLY SEEMS UNLIKELY BUT I DO ADMIT I WOULD STICK AROUND FOR THAT PARTICULAR STORY.

YEAR OF GLAD

I AM SEATED IN AN OFFICE, SURROUNDED BY HEADS AND BODIES. MY POSTURE IS CONSCIOUSLY CONGRUENT TO THE SHAPE OF MY HARD CHAIR. THIS IS A COLD ROOM IN UNIVERSITY ADMINISTRATION, WOOD-WALLED, REMINGTON-HUNG, DOUBLE-WINDOWED AGAINST THE NOVEMBER HEAT, INSULATED FROM ADMINISTRATIVE SOUNDS BY THE RECEPTION AREA OUTSIDE, AT WHICH UNCLE CHARLES, MR. DELINT AND I WERE LATELY RECEIVED.

I AM IN HERE.

THREE FACES HAVE RESOLVED INTO PLACE ABOVE SUMMER-WEIGHT SPORTCOATS AND HALF-WINDSORS ACROSS A POLISHED PINE CONFERENCE TABLE SHINY WITH THE SPIDERED LIGHT OF AN ARIZONA NOON. THESE ARE THREE DEAMS -- OF ADMISSIONS, ACADEMIC AFFAIRS, ATHLETIC AFFAIRS. I DO NOT KNOW WHICH FACE BELONGS TO WHOM.

I BLIEVE I APPEAR NEUTRAL, MAYBE EVEN PLEASANT, THOUGH I'VE BEEN COACHED TO ERR ON THE SIDE OF NEUTRALITY AND NOT ATTEMPT WHAT WOULD FEEL TO ME LIKE A PLEASANT EXPRESSION OR SMILE.

I HAVE COMMITTED TO CROSSING MY LEGS I HOPE CAREFULLY, ANKLE ON KNEE, HANDS TOGETHER IN THE LAP OF MY SLACKS. MY FINGERS ARE MATED INTO A MIRRORED SERIES OF WHAT MANIFESTS TO ME, AS THE LETTER X. THE INTERVIEW ROOM'S OTHER PERSONNEL INCLUDE: THE UNIVERSITY'S DIRECTOR OF COMPOSITION, ITS VARSITY TENNIS COACH, AND ACADEMY PRORECTOR MR. A. DELINT. C.T. IS BESIDE ME; THE OTHERS SIT, STAND AND STAND, RESPECTIVELY, AT THE PERIPHERY OF MY FOCUS. THE TENNIS COACH JINGLES POCKET-CHANGE. THERE IS SOMETHING VAGUELY DIGESTIVE ABOUT THE ROOM'S ODOR. THE HIGH-TRACTION SOLE OF MY COMPLIMENTARY NIKE SNEAKER RUNS PARALLEL TO THE WOBBLING LOAFER OF MY MOTHER'S HALF-BROTHER, HERE IN HIS CAPACITY AS HEADMASTER, SITTING IN THE CHAIR TO WHAT I HOPE IS MY IMMEDIATE RIGHT, ALSO FACING DEANS.

THE DEAN AT LEFT, A LEAN YELLOWISH MAN WHOSE FIXED SMILE NEVERTHELESS HAS THE IMPERMANENT QUALITY OF SOMETHING STAMPED INTO UNCOOPERATIVE MATERIAL, IS A PERSONALITY-TYPE I'VE COME LATELY TO APPRECIATE, THE TYPE WHO DELAYS NEED OF ANY RESPONSE FROM ME BY RELATING MY SIDE OF THE STORY FOR ME, TO ME. PASSED A PACKET OF COMPUTER-SHEETS BY THE SHAGGY LION OF A DEAN AT CENTER, HE IS SPEAKING MORE OR LESS TO THESE PAGES, SMILING DOWN.

'YOU ARE HAROLD INCANDENZA, EIGHTEEN, DATE OF SECONDARY-SCHOOL GRADUATION APPROXIMATELY ONE MONTH FROM NOW, ATTENDING ENFIELD TENNIS ACADEMY, ENFIELD, MASSACHUSETTS, A BOARDING SCHOOL, WHERE YOU RESIDE.'

YOU KNOW, EVER SINCE I MOVED TO ENGLAND, I HAVE HEARD PEOPLE RIPPING ON SOME WOMAN I'VE NEVER HEARD OF CALLED KERRY KATONA. SO, I WAS LIKE 'FUCK, DUDE. HOW BAD CAN THE BITCH BE?' SO, IN MY STATE OF ADVANCED BOREDOM, I WIKIED HER.
KATONA HAS BEEN CRITICISED FOR SMOKING DURING HER PREGNANCIES. SHE WAS SPOTTED HAVING A CIGARETTE WHILE PREGNANT WITH HEIDI IN 2006, WHICH LED TO KERRY'S SPOKESMAN ADMITTING THAT SHE WAS STILL SMOKING FOUR CIGARETTES A DAY AND "DESPERATELY TRYING TO STOP ALTOGETHER."

HOWEVER, SHE ALSO ADMITTED ON MORE THAN ONE OCCASION THAT SHE WAS STILL SMOKING DURING HER FOURTH PREGNANCY IN 2007. SHE ALSO SAID THAT SHE HAD CONSUMED ALCOHOL DURING THIS PREGNANCY. HER COMMENTS RESULTED IN THE FOUNDATION FOR THE STUDY OF INFANT DEATH (FSID) WARNING KATONA THAT HER BABY IS UP TO 15 TIMES MORE LIKELY TO DIE FROM A COT DEATH AS A RESULT OF HER SMOKING. THE BRITISH HEART FOUNDATION ALSO PROVIDED PUBLIC WARNINGS WHICH CONDEMNED KATONA'S DECISION. KATONA CONTINUED TO DEFEND HER BEHAVIOUR AFTER THESE STATEMENTS WERE MADE.

IN AUGUST 2007, IT WAS CLAIMED THAT KATONA HAD REFUSED TO TAKE A DRUGS TEST TO PROVE THAT SHE WAS FIT TO LOOK AFTER HER CHILDREN.

IN THE LATER MONTHS OF 2007, IT APPEARED THAT KATONA'S POPULARITY WITH THE PUBLIC HAD DECLINED. SHE WAS VOTED THE SECOND WORST CELEBRITY MOTHER IN A POLL IN SEPTEMBER, WAS FORCED TO DENY BEING ON DRUGS FOLLOWING AN UNUSUAL APPEARANCE ON GMTV IN OCTOBER, AND IN NOVEMBER, SHE WAS VOTED THE MOST IRRITATING INDIVIDUAL IN BRITAIN. IN DECEMBER, HER ICELAND ADVERTISEMENT WAS VOTED THE SECOND WORST CELEBRITY AD. LATER IN THE MONTH, SHE SAID THAT SHE FELT "VICTIMISED" BY THE PUBLIC AND INSISTED THAT SHE DID NOT DESERVE TO BE CALLED A BAD MOTHER.

APPEARING ON THE 12 FEBRUARY 2008 EDITION OF CHANNEL 4'S RICHARD AND JUDY SHOW, KATONA ADMITTED THAT SHE HAD TAKEN COCAINE, BUT CLAIMED THAT SHE HAD NOT TAKEN ANY DRUGS FOR THE PAST THREE YEARS. SHE ALSO CLAIMED THAT THE PRESS WERE CONSTANTLY MAKING UP STORIES ABOUT HER AND THE REPORTS OF HER LOSING HER POSITION AS SPOKESPERSON FOR THE ICELAND CHAINSTORES WERE UNTRUE AND THAT SHE WAS IN THE PROCESS OF RENEWING HER CONTRACT WITH THEM.

APPEARING ON THE 22 OCTOBER 2008 LIVE EPSIDODE OF ITV'S THIS MORNING SHOW, KATONA'S SPEECH APPEARED TO BE SLURRED PROMPTING VIEWERS TO PHONE IN DURING THE INTERVIEW TO ASK IF SHE WAS OK.
FAIR PLAY. I CAN SEE THAT THE LADY MIGHT HAVE A COUPLE OF TINY, WEENSY WIDDWE ISSUES. MAYBE SHE AND THAT NICE WINEHOUSE LADY COULD START A BAND OR SOMETHING. THAT'D BE PRETTY UNCONTROVERSIAL. I'M SURE NO ONE WOULD NOTICE AT ALL. OR FOLLOW THEM WITH CAMERAS. OR PUT PICTURES OF THEIR COOTERS ON THE FRONT PAGE OF THE DAILY MAIL. OR MAKE A REALITY SHOW ABOUT HER GETTING A BREAST REDUCTION.

OK, SO THAT LAST ONE WAS TRUE, BUT STILL. SHE SEEMS LIKE A REAL SWEETHEART. AND I BET SHE USES CAPS LOCK *ALL THE TIME*. IT'S EASIER WHEN YOU'RE TRYING TO WITH A HUGE FUCKING BUZZ ON.

WIZARD PEOPLE, DEAR READERS
BRAD NEELY

‘KINGS AND BEARS OFTEN WORRY THEIR KEEPERS.’

CHAPTER 1

PRIVET DRIVE. THE OMINOUS FOG MAKES THE NIGHT-TIME EVEN MORE HOARY AND MYSTERIOUS THAN USUAL HERE IN SUBURBAN BRITANNIA. OUT FROM THE SHADOWS OF GOD KNOWS WHAT DIMENSION STEPS THE OLDEST WIZARD IN THE BOOKS, THE NEAR-DEAD DUMBLEDORE. HE IS CLEARLY A POWERFUL BEAST AND WALKS WITH DIGNITY DESPITE HIS AGE AND ATTIRE.

HE SEES A CAT THAT HE KNOWS RIGHT BEFORE HE SETS TO WORK. HE PRODUCES A WIZARD’S TOOL KNOWN AS THE STREET DARKENER, AND, WITH A PRACTICED ANGLING OF THE ARM, BEGINS TO SIPHON AWAY THE CLARITY MADE FROM MANKIND’S BULBS. MAGICAL DEEDS ARE AFOOT, DEAR READERS, MAGICAL DARKNESS A MUST.

THE ATMOSPHERE COMPLETE, THE CAT, NOW PROTECTED BY SHADOWS, TRANSFORMS INTO WHO ELSE BUT PROFESSOR HARDCASTLE MCCORMICK, AN OLD FRIEND AND ALLY OF DUMBLEDORE, THE HALF-DEAD. SHE IS TRULY A GREAT WIZARD, ALSO, AND POSSESSES MANY A SKILL THAT MIGHT AID IN TO-NIGHT’S RANDOM ERRANDS.

THEY SPEAK GRAVELY OF TO-NIGHT’S HORRIBLE DECISION. AND, DEAR READERS, TRUST ME, THEIR WORK TO-NIGHT IS DUBIOUS. WHAT ARE THEY TO DO? ARE THEY REALLY GOING TO GO THROUGH WITH TO-NIGHT’S DESPERATE PLAN? THE CHOICE IS CLEARLY IN POWERFUL HANDS, AS DUMBLEDORE PONDERS WITH HIS GIGANTIC BRAIN.

JUST THEN, A LIGHT APPROACHES IN THE CLOUDS. SHREDDING THROUGH THE STRATUS DESCENDS NO OTHER THAN HAGAR THE HORRIBLE, A HUGE MAN THAT, IF YOU DIDN’T KNOW BETTER, YOU MAY MISTAKE HIM FOR A GIANT, HAIRY TRUCK. HE IS DUMBLEDORE’S GOFER AND NOW, PERCHED UPON HIS SKY LEOPARD, HAGAR SEEMS AT THE END OF AN ERRAND THAT HAS ALMOST BESTED HIM.

BUT LO! OUT FROM HIS MANLY PAP, HE PRODUCES THE MOST POWERFUL BABY IN THE UNIVERSE. DUMBLEDORE ACCEPTS THE SWADDLED CHILD LIKE THE DELICATE BUTTON OF AN ATOMIC BOMB. HIS BOWELS TENSE. NO FALSE MOVES HERE.

HARDCASTLE MCCORMICK PLEADS WITH DUMBLEDORE NOT TO GO THROUGH WITH THE PLAN. WHAT PLAN, YOU ASK? WELL, THEY ARE GOING TO LEAVE THIS VERITABLE WEAPON OF THE GODS, THIS PARADOX OF BABINESS AND POWER, RIGHT HERE, ON A FRICKIN’ MUGGLE’S DOORSTEP!

BUT ‘SHHH’, SAYS DUMBLEDORE TO THE BABY, AND ‘SHHH’, HE SAYS TO THE LADY. AS HAGAR GNASHES HIS TEETH IN INNER CONFLICT AND ALMOST DROWNS IN SNOTTY, FEARFUL TEARS, HIS MASTER DUMBLEDORE TELLS HIM TO WAIT IN THE FRICKIN’ CAR IF HE HAS TO.

AND THE BABY IS LEFT, THE BABY WITH THE MOST TELLING OF SCARS, THE BABY THAT IS THE SEED OF POWER, THE BABY THAT IS THE INHERITOR OF THE HORRIBLE, HOARY HAMMER OF THE GODS, HARRY, THE WIZARD WHO WAS DESTINED TO VANQUISH ALL EVIL, AND, IF HE SO WISH, BRING IT BACK AGAIN!

HARRY POTTER AND THE SORCERER’S STONE!

CHAPTER 2

HARRY POTTER WAKES TO THE SOUND OF HIS EVIL AUNT BANGING ON HIS BEDROOM’S TINY DOOR. HIS ADOPTED FAMILY TREATS HIM SO POORLY HE CAN BARELY KEEP FROM INCINERATING THEM WITH ANY NUMBER OF SPELLS HE KEEPS HIDDEN WAY UP HIS SLEEVES.

HARRY’S ROOM IS COOL, THOUGH. HE’S CLEARLY MADE THE MOST OF IT, UNLIKE HIS COUSIN, ROAST BEEFY, WHOSE BIRTHDAY HAPPENS TO BE TO-DAY. THE COUSIN HAS NO IDEA OF THE POWER HE IS TOYING WITH. HE IS INDEED A MEAN LITTLE PUKE, WHO IS BORDERLINE RETARDED AND MUST SHOUT MOISTLY EVERY STUPID SENTENCE HE MANAGES TO PIECE TOGETHER.

AS HARRY PREPARES BREAKFAST, TOTALLY MAGIC-FREE AND LABOR-INTENSIVE, HIS VOMIT-INDUCING UNCLE, GIGGLE SNORT, LOOKS ON AS THE EVIL MOTHER DOES THE BLIND MAN BIRTHDAY DANCE WITH ROAST BEEFY. THE LIVING ROOM TURNS OUT TO BE FULL OF PRESENTS FOR THE NONPLUSSED ROAST BEEFYWEEFS.

OF COURSE, IT IS NEVER, NEVER, NEVER ENOUGH. CHUNKS OF DEMANDS SPLATTER ON HIS PARENTS’ FACES. HARRY MUST STAY CALM AND REPRESS HIS URGES OF IGNITING THE HOUSE IN A DEMONSTRATIVE FIREBALL, ENDING THE LIFE OF THESE THREE LITTLE PIGS. BUT OUR WOLF REMAINS COOL.

TO-DAY THE FAMILY IS GOING TO THE ZOO, AND ON THE WAY UNCLE PIG FAT SINISTERLY SUGGESTS A BEATING TO HARRY IF HE SEES ANY KIND OF MAGIC OUT OF HIM. OH HO, DEAR READER! IT LOOKS LIKE UNCLE SALT PORKER HAS SOME IDEA OF OUR HERO’S MAGICAL BRAIN. HIS FACE IS THE WORST.

THE FAMILY SEEMS TO BE HAPPY WITH NOTHING. A GIANT BURMESE LEOPARD-EATING SNAKE BASKS IN FRONT OF THEIR PIGGISH FACES LIKE A POEM, AND, OF COURSE, THEY WANT IT TO DANCE FOR THEM.

BUT NOT OUR HARRY. THE SWEET WIZARD IN REMISSION IS PSYCHICALLY LINKED WITH THE BEAUTIFUL SNAKE-BEING, HAVING DREAMT HIMSELF OF EATING LEOPARDS, BOARS, AND DIK-DIKS. AND WHAT DO YOU KNOW? HARRY CAN ACTUALLY SPEAK WITH THIS CREATURE! WILL HIS TALENTS EVER STOP EMERGING? HARRY, WITH THE SOCIAL GRACE OF A SAINT, IS RELATING WITH THE ORPHANED, CAPTIVE, PIG-HATING SNAKE.

IT IS A BEAUTIFUL MOMENT, INDEED, AND HARRY, FOR ONCE, FEELS IN TUNE WITH THE NATURAL UNIVERSE. THE SNAKE HAS NO PARENTS, IS DANGEROUS, AND IS BEAUTIFUL. HARRY SEES HIMSELF HERE, IN THIS SNAKE, LIKE LOOKING AT HIS IMAGE IN THE MIRROR. IT IS A PERFECT MOMENT.

BUT COUSIN ROAST BEEFYWEEFS NOTICES SOME ACTION, AND RUNS OVER TO SPOIL IT. HARRY TOTALLY LOSES IT AND FRAGS ROAST BEEFY GOOD WITH A GLASS-BE-GONE SPELL! WAH-OOOSH! THE TERRIBLE COUSIN SPILLS HIS ASS INTO THE CAGE AS THE SUPINE BEAST NOBLY ERECTS ITSELF OUT AND IS THANKING HARRY AS HE SLITHERS INTO THE NIGHTMARE HEARTS OF ALL OF THE MUGGLES NEARBY. EVERYONE IS AFRAID OF THIS BEAST BUT HARRY. OF COURSE: HARRY, WHO SEEMS TO BE PART OF THE NATURAL UNIVERSE NOW.

AND WHAT DO YOU KNOW, DEAR READER? PROVIDENCE MUST HAVE CAST A GLASS-BE-BACK SPELL! BECAUSE TAKE A LOOK AT THE ZOO’S NEW ACQUISITION! IT IS A PLAY, A TRAGIC COMEDY, THE LAMENT OF ROAST BEEFY O’WEEFY! HA HA! THE FAMILY PORKUMS IS HIT PALPABLY WITH SHAME. YES, HARRY, DO LAUGH ON. LAUGH RIGHT IN THEIR UNTHINKABLE FACES.

PRACTICALLY EVERY ONE OF THE TOP FORTY RECORDS BEING PLAYED ON EVERY RADIO STATION IN THE UNITED STATES IS A COMMUNICATION TO THE CHILDREN TO "TAKE A TRIP," TO "COP OUT," TO "GROOVE." THE PSYCHEDELIC JACKETS ON THE RECORD ALBUMS HAVE THEIR OWN HIDDEN SYMBOLS AND MESSAGES, AS WELL AS ALL THE LYRICS OF ALL THE TOP ROCK SONGS. AND THEY ALL SING THE SAME REFRAIN: IT'S FUN TO TAKE A TRIP -- PUT ACID IN YOUR VEINS.

GOOD MORNING. IN LESS THAN AN HOUR, KEYBOARDS FROM HERE WILL JOIN OTHERS FROM AROUND THE WORLD, AND YOU WILL BE LAUNCHING THE LARGEST INTERNET MOVEMENT IN THE HISTORY OF MANKIND.

MANKIND -- THAT WORD SHOULD HAVE NEW MEANING FOR ALL OF US TODAY.

WE CAN'T BE CONSUMED BY OUR PETTY DIFFERENCES ANYMORE.

WE WILL BE UNITED IN OUR COMMON INTERESTS.

PERHAPS ITS FATE THAT TODAY IS THE 22ND OF OCTOBER, AND YOU WILL ONCE AGAIN BE FIGHTING FOR OUR FREEDOM -- NOT FROM TYRANNY, OPPRESSION, OR PERSECUTION, BUT FROM MUNDANITY.

WE'RE FIGHTING FOR OUR RIGHT TO SHOUT, TO BE HILARIOUSLY OBNOXIOUS.

AND SHOULD WE WIN THE DAY, THE 22ND OF OCTOBER WILL NO LONGER BE KNOWN AS AN INTERNET HOLIDAY, BUT AS THE DAY WHEN THE WORLD DECLARED IN ONE EXTREMELY LOUD VOICE:

WE WILL NOT GO QUIETLY INTO THE NIGHT

WE WILL NOT VANISH WITHOUT A FIGHT

WE'RE GOING TO LIVE ON

WE'RE GOING TO SURVIVE

TODAY, WE CELEBRATE OUR INTERNATIONAL CAPS LOCK DAY!




WHAT’S THAT?

IT’S ALMOST OVER?
