231. Pioneering Collaborative Spoof Effort on the Little Book of Shxt

Email sent along.

Sorry it took me so long to get this to you. As you can tell, I am taking this spoof quite seriously and I have done a lot of research on the subject of shxt happening. There is a much-needed market for a revised Hallmark-like pocketbook--there are other products like kinda-related books, posters, bumper stickers, mugs, etcetera. The first document is what I started on a while back, but I am sure needs a lot of revision and addition. A LOT. The following documents are people who have made extensive shxt happens lists on line. They are by far the best and most popular ones and can serve as references--if we want to draw from them and/or I think would be better if we created our own original ones. Some are lame and cliche. I already did my research on and found the smallest size we can get is 4.25 x 6.87 inches. Not bad. Pocketbookish. The square ones are WAY too big. The smallest square size they have is 7.5 x 7.5 inches.

I also already designed initial sketches for the front cover. Just a little pile of amorphous brown matter with a cute little bulgy-eyed fly on the top. It's pretty harmless and non-repulsive. The cute fly, I hope can grab attention. I'll show you when I'm back.... Maybe we can make this little pile of amorphous brown matter on top of a planet Earth and have an Absurdity Environmental theme to make the book more original….

I am on email overload and sorry if I missed your chicken-cross-road email if you already forwarded that along. I am on ECP (electronocommunicatiphobia) mode.

I hope things are going well for you. Anaesthetic wore off from early this morning so my productivity is picking up. One more appointment this week tomorrow 1 or 2pm (forgot) and then hopefully I'm well enough to driving back that day :-).

See you soon!

Rough draft document sent along.

The first Shxt Happens List I was exposed to a few years back. Elaborated from there.
