This joke came up in one of this blog's numerous secret bases, the #colonydrop channel on Espernet. Do come by. We're hoping to pitch this project to Type-Moon and EA as a Madden spinoff for the Japanese market. We're thinking multimedia franchise.
I draw a diagram in my mind.
You throw an American football in a spiral. Like a worm crawling in a dog's intestines.
A football thrown any other way just won't go very far.
It certainly won't get to the place it was intended to be thrown.
But this American football. This American football.
It moves with unnatural accuracy.
Moist with the juices of human effort, this football tumbles end over end through the air.
It's as though the place it was going will always be the place it will go.
I think of my sister.
