For those of you who missed it. The man is protected by parody fair use, and by the fact that he made us snurk.

This is quite brilliant. Well made and well written.
I especially liked this "lore" snippet I've found on the side bar:

And what, Mr Eaten, asked the Impertinent Man, is your bloody name?
Hmm? Oh. Gerald, replied the Master of the Bazaar. Don't know what all the fuss was about, honestly.

He won me immediately at: "It's... oh, it's you. Well, isn't that a thing? (Seek psychiatric help if this isn't you.)" I still laugh whenever I think of that.

Not to mention this sidebar: "The only real difference between invisible giant bees and imaginary giant bees is your perception. Please keep this in mind the next time you don't see one." Brilliant. Quite brilliant.

" Small group of Artistic Devils seek willing human subject for life drawing classes'. That could work, if you can stomach the nerves of... wait, hang on, that's only the first part of a two part class. The second half is far less whimsical.

Employability is falling... Now 16!"

- that reminds me of the time i thought of signing up for clinical trials, and get various toxins injected under my skin.

I still wonder what that second part is. Death drawing classes? Drawing of eviscerated humans? Details of their various organs? Or something different... drawing of an abstraction? Drawing of a soulless human?

[spoiler]"...you find yourself waking up in a pool of even staler beer than normal, with a storming headache and a sense of unearned patriotism that is already starting to fade. On the back of your hand is written either the Pneumatic Barmaid or the Crepuscular Publican's phone number. You're not sure which you tried to seduce, but it would be seriously awkward if you got it wrong.

You now have £2.

An occurrence! Your 'Hangover' Quality is now 10.

Britishness is increasing... Now 57!"

Lordie save thy queen! or something!!

Favourite from the sidebar: "Is Swindon the Fifth City or the Sixth City? Neither. Swindon is a town."

I want to shop at a Tesco Bazaar. I bet I won't find tasty sonar-stunned insects any cheaper.

I suspect that the first class would be a 'life drawing class' and the second class would be a 'soul drawing class' - a nice little play on words.

Here's a potential one. 'Tome Reader wanted for the Tomb Colonies. Definitely no dyslexics. Not again. Never again.' Hmm. No, Venderbight is a killer commute.
